Julia Culbert

Julia Culbert, a multifaceted artist hailing from Los Angeles, effortlessly combines her talents as a singer-songwriter and actress. Notable for her roles in films like "Birdemic 3" and her self-produced documentary, "Monarch," slated for premiere at 2024 festivals, Culbert stands out in the entertainment landscape.

Beyond her cinematic pursuits, Julia is immersed in the world of Irish dancing, dedicating her summers to training with the prestigious Riverdance. Her musical endeavors have culminated in the release of her debut album, now available on all streaming platforms. Testament to her burgeoning success, her previously launched singles have collectively garnered over 100,000 streams on Spotify.

For fans who have never heard your music, can you pick three words to describe it?! If three words just aren't enough, then tell us more!!

Authentic, Expressive, Haunting. 

My music strives to bring emotions to life. 

What is your favorite part about being an artist? Is it songwriting, performing, recording, something else? Tell us why.

I love being able to create something from nothing. I think creating is the most magical thing we can do as people, and I love that my music allows me to be a creator. 

Can you tell us what being in the recording studio is like for you?

It’s a really exciting time being able to watch your ideas come to life right before your eyes. It’s definitely really long hours but it's worth every second. 

Okay, this is a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing?

I actually work as a ski instructor in the winter, and I do guided horseback riding in the summer, so I love being able to ski and be out on the horses. I train with Riverdance in the summers as well and that’s always such a rewarding experience, and a wonderful opportunity for personal growth.

Who do you admire most in the music scene today and why?

I really admire Noah Khan, because he is just such a unique talent and he worked so hard for all of his incredible achievements. 

Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it?

The song I’ve written that is the most emotional is my new song “Living in Fear” which is about dealing with really severe anxiety, which is something I struggle with. It was really empowering to write a song about not letting your anxiety control your life. 

Are you working on any new material right now or what's in the works for the upcoming year?

I’ve written several new songs which I’m looking forward to recording in the new year. I also have a music video for “Living in Fear” in the works, directed by Immanuel Portus, and I’m excited for that to be released soon as well.
