Julianna Zachariou

San Diego, CA

When Julianna Zachariou was young, she was often pegged as “old for her age.” Her earliest songs explored themes of addiction, listlessness, grieving, aging and loss of purpose. As a deep intuit and quiet observer, the stories she heard weekly from her father's pulpit and her mother’s justice work gave her a heavy sense of the human experience without having lived it. Music, another legacy in her family, is where she began to house these stories and in her own private ministry, attempted with song to heal the pain of others. 
 Julianna, now 26, has found her own story. Her current project, built with help from mixing engineer Callum Barter (Lotta Sea Lice) is a true labor of love. Not only is it a leaping ode to self acceptance but it is also an exceptional display of Julianna’s unrelenting creative independence as each song you hear was written, played and produced by her and her alone. Becky, the project’s flagship single and Julianna’s first release after coming out as queer is "an homage to a steadfast type of love and all the quiet riches that come along with it" (KPBS, San Diego). Its companion, The Bad Guy is an open invitation to feeling your feelings and allowing the holy work of consequence to ensue without self-damnation. The full length project is set for release in spring of 2022. 
 Julianna Zachariou is a writer, producer and multi-instrumentalist and Is a contributor to the band Echobaby. She lives in San Diego, CA with her dog and her partner Becka.
