Bio

Lupa J is the creative project of Sydney based producer and songwriter Imogen Jones. At age 15, Jones posted her first three tracks under the Lupa J alias on Soundcloud. She immediately gained attention from tastemakers at DIY Magazine, who wrote “there’s something in the way she makes predominantly electronic, gadgety things seem like they’ve come straight out of some pagan cave of organic sounds.” In Australia, national radio station Triple J nominated her as a finalist for an unprecedented two years running in their Unearthed High competitions of 2014 and 2015.

The release of her debut album, “Swallow Me Whole” was followed by a successful album tour, which included a sold-out show at Oxford Arts Factory Gallery Bar. Released on July 5 to immediate success, “Swallow Me Whole” earned Lupa J a ‘Spotlight Artist’ feature in The Independent (U.K), FBi Radio’s 'Album Of The Week' and Spotify championed several songs in major editorial playlists.

With three EPs and a debut LP under her belt and a touring history that includes Grimes, Alice Glass, Sarah Blasko and Tegan and Sara, 2019 has seen Lupa J evolve into one of Australia's most unique and proven left-field pop voices.

Not one to let time stand still, the 21 year old Melbourne-based singer, songwriter and producer is back with not one but two new singles, ‘Half Alive’ and ’Out To Wreck’, showcasing her love of pop, techno and EDM and lighting the way for her new direction.

Great track from the restlessly creative brain of Lupa J. Crisp and a bit more club ready than some of their past releases, I'm loving this moment.

unsurprisingly lupa j again takes hold of you and it works best if you just run with her because the ride is wild and so worth it.
