Since emerging in 2015, JULIA has transformed pop not only from behind-the-scenes as a songwriter whose credits span everyone from Justin Bieber to Selena Gomez, but in the spotlight as a solo artist. Her rapid rise can be attributed to identifiable honesty in every lyric. Within just a year since arrival, she garnered 2018 GRAMMY® nominations in the categories of “Best New Artist” and “Song of the Year” for “Issues.” That honesty is also why “Issues” received a triple-platinum certification from the RIAA, cracked 1 billion global streams and consumption of 10 million, became “the top-selling debut single by any artist in 2017,” and placed on Variety’s “30 Most Consumed Songs of 2017” as the only solo female contribution. It’s why the industry recognized her with nominations everywhere from American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, Teen Choice Awards and RDMA’s to the MTV VMAS and MTV EMAS.
Prior to making her debut as a solo artist, JULIA MICHAELS became one of pop music’s most in-demand songwriters, co-writing a string of Billboard Hot 100 hits alongside Justin Tranter including smashes like Justin Bieber’s “Sorry,” Nick Jonas ft. Tove Lo “Close,” Selena Gomez’s “Good for You” [feat. A$AP Rocky] & “Hands To Myself,” Hailee Steinfeld “Love Myself,” Britney Spears “Slumber Party,” Gwen Stefani’s “Used To Love You,” and Linkin Park’s “Heavy,” Ed Sheeran’s “Dive,” John Legend’s “Surefire,” with titles on recent album releases from P!nk, Maroon 5, Jessie Ware, Keith Urban, Years & Years and more. The cumulative worldwide stream count for songs MICHAELS has co-written exceeds 10 billion to date. As a songwriter, she has co-written nineteen titles that have charted on the Billboard Hot 100, eleven of which have hit the Top 40, including "Issues."
