Bio

Lupa J’s fresh sound immediately attracted the attention of international music tastemakers when she posted her first three songs on Soundcloud at the tender age of 15. 

Having been nominated by Triple J as an Unearthed High finalist in 2014 and 2015 as well as named by FBi's Music Director Amelia Jenner and Purple Sneakers as '2019 artist to watch', Lupa J has proven herself as a gifted songwriter, producer and performer. With four EPs and a plethora of impressive tours and supports under her belt, which include Grimes, Sarah Blasko, Alice Glass (Crystal Castles), Tegan and Sara, Eves Karydas and the recent announcement of Banoffee, it’s no wonder she has found huge international support with the likes of Stereogum, I-D Magazine and Rookie.



Following an invitation to showcase at Bigsound 2017, Lupa J was praised for her live performance, peaking at #8 on the Bigsound Buzz charts and having her single ‘Keep Back’ featured on The Music Networks ‘Nine Aussie Singles That Killed At Bigsound’.



2018 saw the release of two hugely anticipated new singles from Lupa J, Drift and You’re In My Headphones. After receiving plays at Triple J and a feature on six official Spotify playlists, including New Music Friday, Lupa J hit 2019 with a sold-out album showcase at Golden Age Cinema to showcase her upcoming debut album Swallow Me Whole, out later this year. Lupa J's latest single, The Crash is out now.
