An Australian singer/songwriter who seamlessly melds dreamy indie pop and confessional alt-country, Julia Jacklin was raised in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales. Upon discovering Britney Spears, and eventually Avril Lavigne and Evanescence, in high school, Jacklin decided to shift her focus from a future in social work to a career in music. As her tastes changed, so did her songwriting style, and by her early twenties she was drawing from Fiona Apple, Anna Calvi, and Appalachian folk trio Mountain Man as inspirations. A pair of singles, "Pool Party" and "Coming of Age," drew praise both at home and in the U.K., and in 2016 she released her debut full-length, Don't Let the Kids Win. ~ James Christopher Monger
