An Australian singer/songwriter whose seamless meld of dreamy indie pop and confessional alt-country invokes titles like Angel Olsen, Sharon Vehicle Etten, and Caitlin Rose, Julia Jacklin grew up in a family group of teachers in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales. Upon finding Britney Spears at age ten, and finally Avril Lavigne and Evanescence in senior high school, Jacklin made a decision to change her concentrate from another in social function to a profession in music. As her preferences changed, so do her songwriting design, and by her early twenties she was sketching from a more deeply well of creative expression, citing performers like Fiona Apple, Anna Calvi, and Appalachian folk trio Hill Guy as inspirations. By day time, Jacklin was employed in a manufacturing plant that made important natural oils, and by night, she was honing her abilities on-stage and in the studio room. A set of singles, “Pool Party” and “Arriving old,” drew compliment both in the home and in the U.K., and in 2016 she released her debut full-length, DON’T ALLOW the Kids Get, via London-based indie label Transgressive in the U.K. and Polyvinyl in the U.S.
