IT has been great learning more about Giulia…
and her latest track, Trippin’ Out. I discover the story behind it and whether there is more material coming; what she hopes to achieve before the end of the year; the three albums that mean the most to her – the songwriter suggests a rising artist we need to check out.
I ask Giulia whether there are any particular artists/sounds that inspired her; if she gets time to chill outside of music; the advice she would give to artists coming through – Giulia selects a great song to end the interview on.
Hi, Giulia. How are you? How has your week been?
Good! Busy…but happy, thank you!
For those new to your music; can you introduce yourself, please?
I am a very creative person and everything that happens in my life I love to write about and put into my art. To me, everything is personal and real. I have lived in South America so the Latin and Country music scene is a very big part of my life and my music.
Trippin’ Out is your new single. Can you reveal its story and inspiration?
It was actually a really fast process this time. I was running outside and I had the inspiration of writing a song about that feeling between two people when they first meet and lay eyes on each other; that incredible attraction where it makes you almost dizzy.
Do you think there will be more material coming later this year? What are you working on?
For sure! I just finished my new album, Bother Dimension. So, a lot of new material I would say…
As an Italian-born artist; how much of the Italian music scene, and its people, do you bring into your sounds?
For the moment, not very much I would say…but they do have a very big Trap music scene in Italy going on right now that I really like.
You moved to Argentina but I believe tensions between protestors and the Government forced you back to Italy. How did that time affect you as a person?!
I think I was too young to be really affected by it. I only knew one thing: that we were going home and I was very happy about that.
Which musicians and styles of music did you grow up around? Were you exposed to a lot of different music?
I have been influenced by a lot of different artists and genres in my life. A lot of artists have inspired me in different ways and helped to build me as an artist.
What do you hope to achieve by the end of 2018?
I hope that my album gets a good reception and that I’m able to do lots more live performances!
Have you got a favourite memory from your time in music – the one that sticks in the mind?
Every memory is great! I love to perform live so every show I've done. But, also, I love the time in the studio creating. I am a very creative person.
Which three albums mean the most to you would you say (and why)?
…Baby One More Time from Britney Spears (like every girl born in the '90s); Shania Twain's Come on Over from 1997 and, of course, Eminem’s The Slim Shady LP.
Can we see you on tour soon? What dates are coming up?
For sure. Hopefully, in October in the U.K
What advice would you give to new artists coming through?
Make sure you really want this - it is a huge business full of competition. Work hard and hope for some luck!

Are there any new artists you recommend we check out?
Right now, I’m loving Two Feet’s album. I love his voice and sound.
Do you get much time to chill away from music? How do you unwind?
Well. I try to make sure I have time for my personal life, family and friends. That is always my priority.
Finally, and for being a good sport; you can choose a song and I’ll play it here (not any of your music - I will do that).
