Musical Motivation: Julia

18 year old singer Julia first rose to prominence on the 2015 series of The Voice Kids in France. Following her appearance, where she formed part of Louis Bertignac's team, she continued to build her profile via YouTube. It was here that she caught the attention of the acclaimed duo Mylène Farmer and Laurent Boutonnat, who took Alizée from Graines de Star contestant to international icon. They took her under their wing and built her own sound, which was realised earlier this year with the sensational album, "Passe... comme tu sais". We caught up with Julia to find out what songs make her...


"Gabrielle Solis" by Nusky: the lyrics are raw but I love her instrument.


It depends on my mood.


The acoustic version of Garden's "Secret".


Wejdene's "Anisa". I listen to it with my friends.

Want to work

"Work" by Rhianna & Drake. It motivates me!!!


"Durch den Monsun" by Tokio Hotel, which I listened to as a child and I rediscovered recently.


"Love Tonight" by Shouse, which I have listened to a lot this summer.

Feel determined

"Heads Will Rock" by Yeah Yeah Yeahs


"More Than You Know" by Axwell Ingrosso. I love to listen to it in the evening!
