Julia Schellekens is a 24-year old musician, composer and lyricist from Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Since she was a young girl she started writing her own songs and playing in different music projects. She is a huge lover of language and the sound and texture words can add to music. Her songs are very lyric-based.
Currently she is in her last year of the Conservatory of Amsterdam. She plays in Americana-band called Sam & Julia that released a debut-EP last February. It was well received in The Netherlands and now they are working towards a first full album.
In Arraiolos Julia will be working on her own personal project with piano-based songs in a conceptual theme. It´s in Dutch and the songs combine humor, cynicism and deeper meaning. Multiple short stories all taking place at one nudist-camping.
