RELEASES STUNNING NEW SINGLE “JULIETTE“
Tasmanian indie-pop singer-songwriter, Nuria has revealed her opulent new single “Juliette” a lavish look into the contemporary artists classically trained piano and vocal skills. Investigating both the rewards and downfalls of deep love, “Juliette” is a magnificent display of talent and development.
Fathomless with introspective lyricism and stunning yet haunting vocal layering, this single is exemplary of Nuria’s pure excellence. “Juliette” follows Nuria’s 2020 debut album “Alive” which has received praise for its smooth production, gorgeous vocals and mature sound.
“Sometimes when you fall in love with someone the experience is so intense it can feel like both pleasure and a poison,” said Nuria. “Juliette is about that feeling. How we can need, and want something so much that the ache feels almost like an illness, yet the attainment of that love is the ultimate salvation.”
Nuria is the stage name of Tasmanian indie pop artist Anna Maynard. Pronounced NOO-ree-ah, this name from her childhood meaning “Fire of the Lord” speaks of passion, boldness and captures a spirit unhindered by the constraints of growing up.
Nuria’s story is reflected in the depths of her songwriting – a childhood of fantasy, a tumultuous adolescence of desires, insecurities and self discovery, the “sensible” choice of a day job as a doctor and all the while a burning and insatiable desire to create and connect through music.
A seasoned performer, Nuria has previously worked under her name Anna Maynard having notable past performance opportunities including the Cygnet Folk Festival, Nannup FolkFestival, Top Half Folk Festival and support act for the Waifs with fellow artist Dave Crowe (aka Resin Moon). She is also a regular feature at MONA, the Wrest Point Casino Hobart and an active member of the Australian Songwriters Association.
With the release of her debut album “Alive” in 2020 Nuria’s music is being received by audiences throughout Australia. With massive community radio support and her songs being added to the ABC rotation, this Tasmanian artist is building momentum with each release. Singles from her debut album have made it into the Top 30 for the 2020 Australian Songwriters Association Songwriting Contest as well as being selected in the Unsigned Only Competition semi finals.
With no signs of slowing down, Nuria is preparing for the release of her second album in 2021. With her soulful and enigmatic vocals wrapped up in the multi-textured and elegant production work of Sam Phay and mix/master engineer Peter Holz, this emerging artist is stepping into an exciting new chapter.
“Juliette” is now available on all streaming services.
