“Small Talk” is produced and co-written by Grammy Award-winner, Skidd Mills as well as Independent Music Award winner Billy Dawson. According to a recent review, “Small Talk” is nearly led by the beats of the drums, providing Juliana with a unique platform to really create the rhythm & melody we hear with the movement in her vocals. She’s got that Florence Welch kind of sound working in her favor in her vocals, with what’s nearly like a Rihanna-esque set of ideas for the songwriting & rhythmic style that “Small Talk” has. In any event, there’s no question about the relevance of a sound like this for what’s happening out there in music today – “Small Talk” stands a massive chance of catching the ears of a huge audience out there."
Initially hailing from Laguna Hills, CA, Hale’s parents moved the family to Nashville when Hale was 10 years old to help their daughter pursue her dream. A talented multi-instrumentalist, Hale began playing guitar and writing songs in fourth grade. She’s since added piano as well as ukulele, bass, and flute to her instrumental repertoire. Describing her music as “unique indie pop with a clean and empowering message,” the intense songwriter has over 1,000 songs in her catalog.
Hale released her first EP, Dance in the Rain, when she was just 14 years old; however, health issues affecting Hale’s voice arose soon afterward and her dreams were temporarily put on hold. During this time, the young singer spent countless hours with vocal coaches, reclaiming her voice. This period in Hale’s life has had a significant impact on her writing and her musical journey.
The hard work paid off: Hale was invited to perform at the 2018 Leather & Laces Super Bowl Pre-Party hosted by Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy, performing alongside Flo Rida, Brandi Cyrus, and DJ Automatic. She also got the opportunity to perform at Number Fest alongside Marshmello and Lil Uzi Vert. The young star-in-the-making is looking ahead to crisscrossing the U.S. on tour as she supports EP, Small Talk, in 2018.
