    Juliyaa launched on to the pop scene in August 2011 with the release of her debut single ‘The Rhythm’. This upbeat track draws influences from classic ‘80s soul, with a nod towards the R’n’B sounds of artists such as Janelle Monae and Beyonce.

    Twenty three year old Juliyaa is the perfect soul star. Born and raised in North London to a Ghanaian mother and a Welsh father, her music is a reflection of her rich and varied cultural background.

    She was raised listening to her mother's traditional Ghanaian gospel and highlife, and her father's classic vinyl collection of soul and reggae artists including Bob Marley, Al Green and Toots and the Maytals.

    At the tender age of seven she began song writing in church and then in her teens refined her skills as a vocalist on the UK garage scene alongside artists such as Estelle and The Heartless Crew.

    Rooted in African polyrhythms, layered with harmonious soul vocals and infused with the high energy of UK urban music, Juliyaa effortlessly combines different genres in to a sound she calls ‘Rhythmic Soul’.

    With her sultry soul voice, trademark retro style and infectious personality, Juliyaa is renowned for delivering up tempo and fun-filled live performances.

    In the run up to her single release, Juliyaa has been performing with her band at some of London's most prestigious venues including the Roundhouse, Regal Rooms, Camden Proud and The Troubadour.
