Julia Minkin is an American singer-songwriter based in France. She has been a member of the French electropop group Kid Francescoli for their last two albums, With Julia and Play Me Again, which she co-wrote with the band’s chef d’orchestre Mathieu Hocine. The duo, whose first collaborations began with naïve dictophone recordings and long-distance Skype sessions, are now playlisted on French national radio and tour internationally.

Julia has also collaborated and written lyrics for Wuman, a Brussels-based experimental pop band and for Bogo, a jazz-fusion project headed by saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist Fred Pichot. She grew up in Chicago and studied Comparative Literature and Creative Writing at New York University.
