She is a self-proclaimed storyteller, but this isn't exactly your kid sister’s bedtime fairytale.
Please direct your attention to Anjulie, this week’s Stereotude Artist of the Week. Beginning by penning hits for Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj, the artist is moving into her own spotlight.
A New York transplant with roots in the talent-rich land of Canada, Anjulie sings songs like “Brand New B-tch” and “Boom” that tell the saga of a girl coming out of her shell and following her own path in the most explosive way possible.
“I literally started by playing guitar on the street,” she said in a statement. “I'd play in subway stations and lobbies of record companies. People would throw money in my f-cking guitar case like a busker! My goal was to put big, exciting pop production behind singer-songwriter soul. I knew there would be a way for those two worlds to clash.”
Her sound and look seem to hint at similarities to fellow pop hellcats like Gaga or Ke$ha, but it’s not quite that simple. With influences ranging from Michael Jackson to Alanis Morissette to Jeff Buckley, Anjulie blends hip-hop, rock, and electro influences all into one flavorful package.
Already established on Canadian airwaves, Anjulie’s tracks, including her last single “You and I, ” are quickly finding their way into U.S. listener’s earbuds.
Her new single, “Alison,” along with a video, drops March 11.
