Julia Hatfield is a young, vivacious singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Navasota, Texas who is forging her own sound encompassing a unique blend of contemporary and traditional country music. At the young age of nineteen, her dedication to music has been a non-stop journey of performing and writing, and studying piano and guitar.
Performing over 100 time per year, Julia plays in all size venues as an acoustic act and as a featured performer with many other well-known artists. A few of her recent “highlight performances” include the iconic Bluebird Café in Nashville, the Cowboy Palace in Los Angeles, and the songwriters circle at the legendary Luckenbach Dance Hall.
Anyone who has met Julia will tell you that she’s an old soul. That soul certainly shines through in her performances as she pays tribute to those who have helped shape her sound.
Some of Julia’s heaviest influences are from many Texas artists and songwriters such as Guy Clark, Lee Ann Womack, Jason Eady and Lyle Lovett, just to name a few. Her love of the traditional country sound with the “twang” of steel guitar, fiddle, and other real country instrumentation, along with the power of storytelling is what Julia is all about.
Recently making it to the top 20 on the Texas Charts, Julia is establishing a strong reputation in the TX/RedDirt scene and has already hit the top 50 with her debut single, “Who I Wanted You To Be”. As people continue to fall in love with her dynamic songwriting and fresh, yet classic country sound, “Who I Wanted You To Be” is a perfect continuation.
Julia’s introduction to the Country Music scene is like a fresh “new” sound of America’s traditional Country Music with her own twist of attitude.
From the songs she writes, her engaging performances, and her generous spirit, you can bet Julia is truly a one of a kind girl, and that’s just how she likes it.
