Julia Michaels Announces Second Tour Leg

JULIA MICHAELS ANNOUNCES SECOND LEG OF THE INNER MONOLOGUE TOUR

DATES KICK OFF OCTOBER 16 IN TEMPE, AZ AND RUN THOUGH NOVEMBER 2019

CURRENTLY ON THE BEAUTIFUL TRAUMA WORLD TOUR WITH P!NK THROUGH MAY 2019

Listen to Inner Monologue Part I HERE

On the heels of multiple sold out shows, GRAMMY® Award-nominated multi platinum singer and songwriter JULIA MICHAELS will extend her first-ever headline show—THE INNER MONOLOGUE TOUR—with a month of dates this fall. Given the widespread fan demand, she will once again canvas North America with headline gigs coast-to-coast. The next leg kicks off October 16 in Tempe, AZ at the Marquee Theatre and concludes November 16 at Vogue Theatre in Vancouver, BC. Tickets go on-sale this Friday!

Get them HERE.

In March, THE INNER MONOLOGUE TOUR showcased her power as a live performer and solidified her as an impressive concert draw. She sold out venues in Chicago, Seattle, San Diego, Boulder, and Tulsa, to name a few. MICHAELS is also currently supporting P!NK on the U.S. installment of The Beautiful Trauma World Tour.

On a nightly basis, she’s bringing her debut, INNER MONOLOGUE PART I, to life on stage—and bringing fans closer than ever.

GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer and songwriter Julia Michaels has transformed the pop music landscape not only from behind-the-scenes as one of the most in-demand songwriters, but in the spotlight as a solo artist as well. Her rapid rise can be attributed to identifiable honesty in every lyric, as exemplified in her triple-platinum selling debut single “Issues”.  In 2018, she garnered GRAMMY® Awards nominations in the categories of “Best New Artist” and “Song of the Year” for “Issues,” which amassed nearly 2 billion streams worldwide. Continuing that success, “Issues” notably became “the top-selling debut single by an artist in 2017,” and placed as the only solo female composition on Variety’s “30 Most Consumed Songs of 2017.”

As a songwriter, MICHAELS has co-written 21 titles that have charted on the Billboard Hot 100, eleven of which have hit the Top 40, including “Issues.”  Those songwriting credits include smashes like Justin Bieber’s “Sorry,” Selena Gomez’s “Good for You” [feat. A$AP Rocky] & “Hands To Myself,” and Hailee Steinfeld’s “Love Myself.”  She’s also written titles for Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani, Linkin Park, Ed Sheeran, John Legend, P!NK, Maroon 5, Jessie Ware, Janelle Monae, Keith Urban, Shawn Mendes and more.

Since her debut as a solo artist, MICHAELS has built an enviable touring resume, joining artists like Maroon 5, Keith Urban, Shawn Mendes, Niall Horan, and P!NK- who she is currently touring the U.S. with through May 2019, around the globe.

MICHAELS most recently surprised fans with the release of INNER MONOLOGUE PART I.  Upon arrival, the EP debuted at #1 on the iTunes Pop Albums Chart and #5 Overall iTunes Albums Chart. The success of the EP prompted MICHAELS first-ever headline tour, “The Inner Monologue Tour,” which has sold out dates across the country.

Rosklide Festival 2019 Lineup

Roskilde Festival completes 2019 line-up with Janelle Monáe, Skepta, Vampire Weekend and 65 more artists

Other new names include Marina, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Maggie Rogers, Johnny Marr, Behemoth, Aldous Harding, DJ Koze, Sheck Wes, Saweetie, Weyes Blood and The Comet Is Coming

29 June – 6 July 2019 Denmark |Roskilde-festival.dk |

With 67 new artists – including 55 new music acts – the full line-up for Roskilde Festival, Northern Europe’s biggest festival, is now complete. 173 music acts in total will play the Danish non-profit festival. Today’s new additions will join the already announced The Cure, Bob Dylan, Travis Scott, Cardi B, Robyn, Christine and the Queens, Rosalía and many, many more.

From Ghana to Greenland, from New Zealand to Norway, from Jamaica to Japan, artists of all sizes from more than 30 different countries will play the big and the small stages. Festival-goers from all over the world will party together in the name of charity when they explore the diverse music and arts programme at Roskilde Festival 2019. When Janelle Monáe first played Roskilde Festival she called it the most amazing show she had ever played. The American is back, bigger and better than ever before after the release of her highly acclaimed Dirty Computer, mixing soul, funk, pop and Afrofuturism. A former mentee of Prince, Monáe doesn’t merely perform a persona, she embodies it. On her first releases, she became an android, inviting listeners into a world full of Afrofuturist magical realism. She has wowed critics in roles in Academy-nominated films, ”Moonlight” and “Hidden Figures”, so performing a character is natural stuff for this prodigy. Her album challenges social and sexual norms as well as traditional concepts of a woman’s role in the world. It’s also an album that celebrates those in marginalised communities.

Indie heroes, guitar gods and wonderful weirdos. Vampire Weekend have kept fans waiting for a new album for six years. Now they are finally back at Roskilde Festival, and this time they will be conquering the legendary main stage, the Orange Stage. Noel Gallagher returns with his High Flying Birds, and guitar lovers will be happy to see another British legend, Johnny Marr, presenting both solo material and The Smiths classics. Travis Scott favourite Sheck Wes, grime king Skepta and future star Saweetie will make hip-hop connoisseurs happy, while festival-goers looking for something heavier will rejoice in collective headbanging to acts such as Behemoth and Danish favourites Baest. Plenty of singer-songwriters are ready for their Roskilde debut: from Welsh popstar Marina and New Zealand hero Aldous Harding to folk-pop starlet Maggie Rogers and indie favourite Weyes Blood. Those favouring synthesizers, beats and samples will have plenty to look forward to with new announcements such as German darling DJ Koze, quirky Italian Giorgia Angiuli and noisy duo 700 Bliss consisting of DJ Haram and Moor Mother. A further exploration of the paths of weird will lead to Yves Tumor and the jazz adventures of The Comet Is Coming and Sons of Kemet XL, with saxophone hero Shabaka Hutchings leading both outfits.

Nordic talents ready for their Roskilde Festival debut- Roskilde Festival’s talent programme has also been completed with 32 new acts, representing the best new Nordic music. The new acts include Icelandic prodigy Auður, Norway’s Lil Halima, Swedish DIY rapper Z.E and Selma Judith, daughter of Lars von Trier and one of the most exciting new acts in Denmark, making emotional R&B while mastering the harpThey will join already announced upcoming Nordic acts such as Norway’s Brenn., Copenhagen techno duo Funeral Future and Ea Kaya, one of Denmark’s most promising Scandi-pop talents. These artists are all making waves in their home countries and internationally, ready to take things to the next level at Roskilde Festival. They follow in the footsteps of MØ, Silvana Imam, Icona Pop, Iceage, Susanne Sundfør and many others who played Roskilde Festival before their big breakthroughs. During the first three days of the festival, these stars of tomorrow will play the Rising and Countdown stages, both located in the centre of the non-profit festival’s huge camping city. Most of these acts will play to the biggest audience of their career so far.

Arts, activism and solidarity – and particle accelerators- Art, social engagement and music are inseparable and all part of the full experience at Roskilde Festival.Hundreds of artists, writers, scientists, speakers and architects will inspire contemplation, spark debate and surprise festival-goers. This year’s Arts & Activism programme includes a large-scale sculpture by renowned Swiss artist Claudia Comte and a performance by American artist Isabel Lewis. Hannah Tocicki Anbert will conduct a silent parade in the name of unproductivity, Søren Aagaard will set up a post-apocalyptic food truck and Japanese artist Tomoko Sauvage will transform water bowls into instruments, turning water into sound. As always, there will be plenty of street art at Roskilde Festival with a programme that includes Askew One, Bacon and Zusa. Bringing science to the festival experience, CERN and the Niels Bohr Institute will offer workshops enabling you to make a cloud or a your very own renewable charger as well as debates on topics such as future energy.

Roskilde Festival’s head of programme Anders Wahrén says: “It feels great to finally present our programme, and Janelle Monáe is a crown jewel in a line-up I think bodes very well for our future. Not only do we have a load of great young artists of all sizes and from all corners of the earth, we also see that many of them are more socially aware than ever. From the music to the arts, debates and workshops, solidarity and activism is something that is reflected throughout our programme.”

The schedule and a handful of acts are yet to be announced. The full arts programme will be out in the spring.

New Music from Julia Micheals and Trippie Redd

GRAMMY® Award-nominated and multi-platinum selling artist JULIA MICHAELS returns with a brand new single entitled “Jump” [feat. Trippie Redd] today. Get it HERE (Post & Share) via Republic Records.

The song heralds the arrival of her anxiously awaited full-length debut—coming soon.

The single reteams JULIA with frequent producer Nick Monson and longtime co-writer Justin Tranter. On the track, ethereal production ignites a groundswell of energy as the singer’s breathy verses culminate on a huge hypnotic hook just before Ohio rap maverick Trippie Redd drops an emotive and engaging verse of his own.

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.

Extending and expanding her influence, she traffics at the forefront of numerous genres. She lent her voice to Clean Bandit’s international hit “I Miss You,which became her first Top 10 entry on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Dance Songs chart. Right now, she also features on Keith Urban’s latest single “Coming Home” and rising artist Noah Kahan’s single “Hurt Somebody.”  Other collaborations include a duet and writing credits on Shawn Mendes’ upcoming album, songs on Christina Aguilera’s upcoming album, a co-writing credit for Janelle Monàe’s latest “Make Me Feel, and a sample of her vocals on Migos“Gang Gang.Moreover, she’s written on recent albums from P!nk, Maroon 5, and Jesse Ware.

Next up on May 18, she performs “Jump” on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! and on the Today Show Summer Concert SeriesJuly 27.

Julia continues to shine on stage as well. Following sold out shows alongside Shawn Mendes and Niall Horan  overseas, she embarks on her first official U.S. tour, joining Maroon 5 for the Red Pill Blues Tour beginning this June (see dates below).

“Jump” is just the beginning. Be on the lookout for more soon!
