There’s a reason so many music professionals declare the same prediction – a star on the rise – for 14 year old Jules Collarile. Her strong vocal delivery , brazen in one breath and hauntingly stark in the next, combined with her incredible songwriting talent make Jules a powerful, charismatic artist who is set to take the music scene by storm.
Playing guitar and singing since the age of six, singer/songwriter Jules possesses a confidence and musical skill rarely seen in someone her age. She is entirely in her element when performing on stage – at once commanding and playful, yet also capable of an emotional delivery that captivates her audiences and displays the raw emotions of young woman navigating her path in life.
Most recently, she was selected as one of 10 finalists worldwide in the 2015 IAMA’s (International Acoustic Music Awards) with “My Little Soldier”, a song about losing a good friend to cancer. This same song also landed Jules as a semi-finalist in the 2014 Unsigned Only Music Competition in the Teen category. And in 2013, her song, “Supergirl”, was the winning entry in a national contest to open the Girls Who Believe Fest in Toronto. All this (and more) by the age of 14. Not bad.
Her debut EP, “Heart of Armor”, was released on May 4th, 2015. Produced by Karen Kosowski (Emma-Lee, Ash & Bloom), the album is full of five original, insightful and catchy songs, plus an energetic and rocking cover of Joan Osborne’s classic, “One of Us”.
