Album Release Show
Julia Klot is a singer-songwriter and pianist based in Brooklyn, NY. A prolific writer and performer, Julia delivers the musical goods on the go. With her original compositions, she creates melodic and intricate piano parts that throwback to singer-songwriters like Carol King and Elton John.
Julia was born and raised in Brooklyn, starting her musical study with piano lessons at age 6. She learned classical music but was also exposed to the world of songwriting. Encouraged by her teacher and family, Julia began writing music of her own. By age 11, Julia was writing and recording original songs, meeting Radian Records producer Andrew Felluss on her first demo session. Soon the team began producing her debut album ‘Julia Klot’ (2014), with Lola Johnson conducting The Now Band and Julia at the keys holding her own.
Since the release of her debut album, Julia has gigged all throughout New York City. With the alluring energy she exudes through her performances, Julia has established herself at well-known historic venues such as The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall, and Pete’s Candy Store.
Her most recent release, the album “Brooklyn”, features songs that were written over the course of her very first semester in college. “Brooklyn” is an exciting 8-song journey through Julia’s use of intriguing and captivating melody, harmony, and rhythm. With each song, the album unfolds a poignant story that draws inspiration from missing home and starting anew.
