In the last three years, our new LIFT artists Julia Michaels has positioned herself as a songwriting force in pop music. The 23-year-old, who grew up in Santa Clarita, California, had a hand in crafting “Miss Moving On” for Fifth Harmony, and ever since, she’s aligned herself with some of the biggest names in music, clocking co-writing credits with Justin Bieber (“Sorry”), Hailee Steinfeld (“Love Myself”) and Selena Gomez (“Hands To Yourself”). Jason Derulo recorded her “Trade Hearts” and gave her a feature vocal on his ‘Everything Is 4’ album. Michaels has been writing poetry since childhood, and when her mom brought a piano into their home when Julia was 12, she began to blend her words with music. These days, the depth of her artistry is being recognized by critics and fans alike, and she’s not only crafting hits for others, but blossoming into the performing artist she’s always wanted to be. Her first big show was on a global stage, closing the 2016 Olympics in Brazil with Kygo, singing “Carry Me” to fans around the world. To kick off her LIFT cycle, Michaels performed “Uh Huh” in a stripped-down setting in LA, and it looks like she and her band had a blast. Stay close to Vevo for another performance of a new song, and an extended profile piece that will explain how music-making is central to Julia’s life.
