Bio

Since 17-year-old Sydneysider Lupa J (neé Imogen Jones) made the transition from classically trained violinist to contemporary electronic artist at the age of 15; the development of her unique, alluring style of blending synthesised instrumentation with violin has captured the attention of taste-making music media the world over, including Australia’s triple j radio who named her a finalist in last year’s national Unearthed High competition.

“Forget the age, anyone making music at this level in any stage of their career is worth taking notice.” - DIY Magazine

Now completing her final year of school at Sydney’s selective Conservatorium High (past alumni includes The Presets and some of Australia's most acclaimed classical talents) Lupa J has delivered ‘Quiet Here’, a beguiling slice of left-of-centre pop that serves to further demonstrate her prowess at fusing organic instrumentation with tasteful electronic production, not to speak of her enchanting vocal ability and lyrical flair that suggests soulfulness well beyond her years.

"...a superbly intuitive sense of what it takes to make an alt-pop tune." -Jim Carroll, The Irish Times 31/1/2013
"Don't let her age fool you — Lupa is a music genius" -The Wild Honey Pie, 3/7/2014
"...intelligent, engaging pop music at its best." -Indie Shuffle, 27/2/2015

If the youth are our future then Lupa J's making sure we've got a bright one. Nimble and inventive, this stirs up the ears, heart and head all at once.

This is moody and cinematic and brave. Lupa J clearly has a unique approach to songwriting that is not only impressive for a teenager but impressive full stop.

Impressive stuff from Imogen once again. She's still in Year 11 so I can't imagine what kind of talented musical monster she's going to grow into in the future.
