Some relationships are so wonderful and romantic, it starts to feel like a fairytale. But like Grimm’s tales, a dark side could be lurking underneath. Singer/songwriter Natasha Jane Julian explores the seedy underside of a relationship that started out as a fairytale on her new EP Happily Ever After. Out October 19, you can stream the entire EP below exclusively on Genre is Dead before its release.
“This EP, Happily Ever After, really was written in a period of hardship for me, then self-discovery afterward,” Julian says about the EP. “They usually say periods of creativity are the result of falling, and that’s exactly what was happening when I wrote these songs. But, you fall, you get back up, you may discover you have a voice and then you have hope and determination to push for the things you want. And in the process, you are able to see and feel what others are going through in their times of trial and having compassion for them. Which are exactly the themes throughout the EP, my dark times, gaining a voice, hope for a better day, and connecting with others in need.”
Julian previously gave us a taste of what to expect with the singles “Tomorrow Will Come,” “Empty Spaces,” and “Thinking Twice.”
Originally from Southern California, Julian began her love for music at a young age. She started her musical journey with various experiences in local projects. She then decided she was ready to break out on her own and launched a solo career. She released her debut EP, Now I Know, in 2016.
