Julia Michaels - Issues
Julia was born in Iowa and now lives in California. She gave up her place in college to follow her song writing dreams after Disney included one of her tunes in a TV show. Since then she’s written songs for Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, Hailee Steinfeld, Fifth Harmony and Nick Jonas. In all, she’s scored 8 Top 20 US hits as a writer including ‘Sorry’ for Justin Bieber and more recently has co-written ‘Dive’ with Ed Sheeran, a song that appears on his new album ‘Divide’. After a song writing camp Julia wrote ‘Issues’, but decided to keep it for herself and release the track as her debut single. Julia’s claim to fame was performing ‘Cloud Nine’ with Kygo at the closing ceremony of the Rio Olympics in 2016. Julia’s profile was recently increased by a series of Snapchat stories by Kylie Jenner. There are plans for a debut album later this year.
