Julia Wolf is the leader of that “quiet kids get the last laugh” pack – artistically, sonically, and lyrically. On the immaculate and urgent Good Thing We Stayed, her debut album due out in January 2023 on BMG, the Long Island native shows off the toolkit she’s been building and sharpening for the past four years, ever since she first embarked upon pursuing music as a career, and following on the heels of her 2021 EP, Girls in Purgatory. Each song tells a story – brilliant, bright, clear, and evocative, filled with singular details so true to Julia but delivered so powerfully that they’ll resonate with any listener with a heart and a brain. Working closely alongside her production partner Jackson Foote (of the pop duo Loote, who’s also helmed hits for Demi Lovato, Zara Larsson, and Mike Posner) – “the first person I’ve worked with who didn’t want to change a thing but wanted to amplify me and my words instead” – Julia uses every square inch and each fleeting second of her debut to make maximum impact. Lyrically driven and anchored by hip-hop influences, trap drums, and self-described “indie vocals” inspired by fellow singer-songwriters like Phoebe Bridgers and John Mayer, Good Thing We Stayed is one of music’s most profound debut statements of strength, perseverance, and resilience.
Good Thing We Stayed is out on BMG in January 2023.
