About Me

Music for me is a blessing really, it helps me sort through my problems, it creates opportunities, and it helps me to express who I really am when Julia Hoffman is just a little too short. My passion is music. I live it, and breathe it everyday. If there is something that I see that inspires me in some way, I write it down and eventually that inspiration will turn into lyrics which then becomes a melody and then people can hear my story and experience it through song.

As an artist I really try to find songs that hit home for a lot of people. I try to find songs that will make them really think about the lyrics, but once they have complete understanding really cherish them. If it weren’t for music, and my music I would not be here today. I am here fulfilling my dream to be a musician. My music and love of music is what keeps me moving, keeps me writing, and keeps me singing.
