Julia Jacklin a very talented singer / songwriter from Sydney, Australia.
Yep another amazing voice from the land down under.
Culled from her bio, a sample:
Julia Jacklin thought she’d be a social worker.
Growing up in the Blue Mountains to a family of teachers, Jacklin discovered an avenue to art at the age of 10, thanks to an unlikely source: Britney Spears.
Inspired, Jacklin began educating herself. From Fiona Apple she learned to be bold with words; from Anna Calvi, the cut and presence of electric guitar; and from Angel Olsen, that interpretation triumphs over technique.
Having got that inspiration and adapted it to her own talent Julia Jacklin has progressed to where she is right now, an amazing singer with awesome songwriting skills. To hear so many awesome songs by someone so young gives one hope for the future of music.
So, background filled, time for the music. Oh and keep a lookout for her debut album, Don’t Let The Kids Win. Maybe that title is in sardonic font.
Check out this cool tune, Pool Party is the first single from Julia’s debut album Don’t Let The Kids Win dropping October 7th 2016. Hopefully in the States as well as down under.
A beautiful poignant song, with an amazingly warm vocal. Julia has a terrific voice, I’m just loving this song.

Julia sings Don’t Let The Kids Win, the title track from her forthcoming debut album, at The 13th Floor. This is a beautifully restrained acoustic track which highlights the absolute warmth of her voice. Oh and that catch in her voice. Love it.
Don’t Let The Kids Win
This was a couple of years back, complete with cop siren, a brilliant performance @ Cleveland’s recorded with the RØDE K2 on vocals and the Procaster on guitar amp. Ohh that catch in her voice, it gets me every time.
Live at Cleveland’s presented by RØDE Microphones: A fortnightly live music session that showcases country, folk and bluegrass acts from in and around the Sydney region.
Filmed and recorded by Sam Brumby, live inside the charming Cafe/Salon, ‘Cleveland’s’, located at 311 Cleveland St. Redfern. These sessions couple the pleasing aesthetics of the stores surroundings with the captivating performances of the musicians.
Another dreamy beautiful song. Accompanied with some cool footage from her USA trip. New Orleans, the train ride to Memphis, Graceland, the Mississippi River and some of Nashville.
Some great familiar places, I’m sure Julia enjoyed New Orleans and Memphis as much, if not more than I did. You just feel the music in your soul.
Such a simple tune, but absolutely beautiful.
It could have been you, Andrew
We’re gonna close with another beautiful song, Julia is one brilliant songwriter.
This one is about the agony of first loves. I’ll let Julia explain it in her own words.
This is a song I wrote a while ago but just recorded in my garage yesterday. I have made a high-tech film clip to go with it to keep you entertained. Don’t be too distracted by the James Cameron-esque visual effects the song is a slow burning story song about the agony and ecstasy of first love.
It’s too cool for words. Enjoy.
