“For some of us, it’s easy to catch yourself thinking about the ways that your parents could have done a better job raising you,” Julia explains. “Now that I’m older, of course I know that they did the best that they could with what they had. But, growing up in Alaska as a poor first generation American, I couldn’t help but to think about what I would want to do differently. This song was born from that place in my heart.”
About Julia Cannon:
Julia Cannon is a Nashville-based singer-songwriter and music producer who is hard to forget. Her soothing, honeyed voice and quirky personality offer a pleasing contrast to the bittersweet honesty of her lyrics.
Julia Cannon was raised in Alaska by a hardworking Filipino mother, in a household Cannon could only describe as “unorthodox.” She developed her wicked sense of humor and offbeat persona early on. As one of only a few people of color in a mostly white, ultra-conservative community, Julia’s creative voice cemented her identity as a young woman who could not – and would not – be overwritten.
In 2015, Julia wrote, arranged, and produced the EP My Name is Julia, which garnered significant attention with bloggers and local radio stations throughout the US. Tracks such as Mashed Potatoes, Batty, and Tracking have been featured in podcasts and playlists across the US and UK. In 2017, Cannon released her debut album, Lack of Will.
Julia Cannon’s sound has been described as playful and relaxing, but her tone transcends the indie-folk genre to include comedy, classic rock, and jazz influences. Cannon credits her genre-bending style to influences such as Ella Fitzgerald, Paul McCartney, and Paul Simon. Cannon now has a growing fanbase in Nashville, who join an existing community of ardent supporters both at home in Alaska and across the US.
