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.

A graduate of Unearthed High, Lupa J has proven herself as a gifted songwriter and producer. With three EPs and a plethora of impressive tours under her belt, which include Grimes, Sarah Blasko, Alice Glass (Crystal Castles) and Tegan and Sara, 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’.

Last year delivered Lupa J a national tour opening for K.Flay and saw her receive Triple J premieres, rotation on RAGE, FBi rotation for her singles “Put Me Back Together”, “Keep Back” and “Moth”, with “Keep Back” hitting #1 on the AMRAP Metro Charts. Lupa J has established a strong fan base, boasting 1.4 million total streams on Spotify.

Lupa J’s new single ‘Drift’, taken from her forthcoming debut album, is out now.

This is some stirring pop wizardry. It's dark and I want to follow you out on to the dance floor. It's got a big Grimes-esque feel about it too.

instantly accessible but weird enough to sound fresh. Lupa J does it again.
