Juliana “Jules” Madrid is a 23-year-old Texas-born, NYC-dwelling artist. Not too long ago, she released an emotionally pronounced indie pop track, “Heathen.”

“‘Heathen’ is about messy love. When one person in a relationship is relying on the other as a savior summarized in the lyric ‘counting on our love to be canonized.’” – Juliana Madrid stated

“Heathen” will be featured on Juliana Madrid’s forthcoming EP, “Lifetime,” available on July 19th, 2024. The project was written across 3 days in upstate New York last fall (2023), at an artist retreat amongst many of Madrid’s songwriting heroes, organized by Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett and Neon Gold’s Derek Davies.

“Not In My Lifetime,” released earlier this year, was the first taste of the EP, co-written with Clairo, Justin Young (The Vaccines), as well as Benjamin Ruttner (The Knocks), and James Flannigan, who also co-produced the track, and was followed by “Just Enough,” a collaboration with fellow Neon Gold artist Joe P.

Juliana combines folk, alternative, and Pop elements to write sardonic, coming-of-age tales that are relatable yet uniquely her. She started in music at the young age of 9, learning guitar at the encouragement of her parents. Soon after, she enrolled in a local program called School of Rock. There, she began to find her voice while realizing she also had a knack for songwriting, using music as a creative outlet to express herself.

Since then, Juliana and her guitar [which she named “Earl”] have been inseparable, working tirelessly to refine her craft. In August of 2022, she released her self-titled EP. Written by Juliana and produced by GRAMMY-nominated artist Benjamin Ruttner [of The Knocks], the EP explores themes of relationships, religion, and the existentialist feeling associated with growing up. Additionally, the lead single, “Pretend” was featured in the hit Netflix movie “Do Revenge,” resulting in more than 20k Shazams in one week.
