Following the exception headline show at The Grand Social this month Julia will be back in Dublin for another headline show early next show, Whelans, 25th February.
Growing up in Australia’s Blue Mountains (west of Sydney, Australia) to a family of teachers, Jacklin had always imagined she would become a social worker. But after a series of events led her head-first into music, there was no turning back. Feeling inspired, Jacklin took to educating herself: From Fiona Apple she learned to be bold with words; from Anna Calvi, the cut and presence of electric guitar; and from Angel Olsen, that interpretation triumphs over technique.
Now living in a garage in Glebe (a suburb of Sydney) and working a day job on a factory production line making essential oils, the 25-year old has found time to hone her craft – to examine her turns of phrase, to observe the stretching of her friendship circles, to wonder who she was and who she might become.
“When I was growing up I was so ambitious; I’m going to be this amazing social worker, save the world, a great musician, fit, an amazing writer” Jacklin recalls. “Then you get to mid-20s and you realize you have to focus on one thing. Even if it doesn’t pay-off, or you feel embarrassed at family occasions because you’re the poor musician still, that’s the decision I made.”
