Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Julia is a pop singer-songwriter who effortlessly captivates her audience with her honesty and openness. As a classically trained pianist and vocalist, music quickly became her way of communication. Combining her vocal talent with her piano skills, she began writing music and arranging covers.
Breathing in inspiration from artists like Joni Mitchell, Julia Michaels, and James Taylor, Gartha’s storytelling skills bring an authentic voice to her sound. She recently graduated from the Berklee College of Music where she majored in Contemporary Writing and Production.
Julia has had the privilege of working with industry figures such as Andrew Lloyd Webber, Kirk Jones and Yvie Burnett, as well performing in masterclasses at Berklee with Rob Lewis (Toni Braxton, Christina Aguilera) and Lamont Leak (NBC'S The Voice).
In February 2019 she was also a featured artist on Season 2 of CTV's The Launch, working with industry legends such as Scott Borchetta (Big Machine Label), Jann Arden, and Shaun Frank.
