Julianna Laine Bio
Julianna Laine is a 20-year-old emerging artist in the country music scene, bringing with her a new sound that combines beach culture with country music - think Kelsea Ballerini; now add a surfboard.
Feeling like her heart needed to be by the ocean, Laine booked a one-way ticket, with a single and VERY overweight backpack, to Byron Bay, Australia and began her new adventure. While living “down under,” Julianna began to take her music seriously – writing songs and playing them at all hours of the day; busking on the streets, playing at bars and even bringing her guitar to the beach to sing songs between surf breaks. Through her music she met many local artists, such as Ziggy Alberts, who has had a very strong influence on her lyrical storytelling. She had the opportunity to play the BLUESFEST pre-party, featuring headliners such as Kendrick Lamar, Grace Potter and City and Colour.
Now back and forth between California and Calgary, Julianna has been working hard to see her dreams come to life. She has been performing, working with her vocal coach and spending time in studio recording with other musicians. Her new single “Beachtown” was released August 4th and debuted in the iTunes Country Top 40! Since then, Laine has been busy performing and songwriting around Alberta and California. Keep your eye out for this upcoming artist; her feel-good sound is sure to vibe with your summer memories!
