The multi-talented Julie Doe, chats with us about her determination, who has given it to her and what she is excited for next!
Where are you located now and where are you originally from?
I am Polish and I live in Poland. Who has been your greatest influence? First of all, my grandmother. She was a ballet dancer and a pianist. She also sang in a choir. She has instilled music in my life that started from long days spent singing on a couch. When I was 6 years old, she decided to sign me up for private piano lessons and then, at the age of 7, to the State Music School. Probably, I would have never started my adventure with music without her. Moreover, she showed me how to be a confident and powerful woman. Secondly, my best friend Brigit. We are friends from the end of primary school. She always had the best grades at school and completed every goal. She always cheers me up. I feel that my life is changing a lot because of her and this is just the beginning of something amazing. She asked me to work with her on her debutant music album. We recorded one song together, 'Gruzy'. I am currently her live performer and she applied for several music festivals all over Europe next year. This will be huge! By working with her and watching her grow her audience, she inspired me to start a music production course and try myself in modern music. What is your latest and greatest? I started my Tiktok account. I play the piano and do trends there but also I am going to start zero/low-waste tips. I have not seen anything like it so I hope my followers will like it as I do. Also, Brigit's music album is out. There is the song ,'Gruzy' that I worked on especially hard and 3 music videos were released! I did the choreography with 2 other choreographers and I was the production coordinator. Of course, I dance and play a role there. I am overwhelmed and so proud of them. What are you most looking forward to in 2021? Finally, go and travel! I was going to visit the Philippines last June but the pandemic has stopped me. I will go to Los Angeles in September. I also plan some small trips to Prague and Kiev. I cannot wait to play some concerts with Brigit Storm! By this time, I had played concerts only at my music school for teachers to get marks. It will be a fantastic feeling to see people coming to hear me playing the piano. Dreams do really come true! And finally start my desired studies - dentistry. Except for the musical part of my life - I studied hard in my biology-chemistry class in high school and I will make it! What would you say to your younger self if you could? It is okay not to feel okay and you can always talk to someone you trust. You should not be ashamed of your feelings. You also do not need to stay awake the whole night to be the best at everything. Tell myself to focus on music and biology and spend more time with friends. But put yourself in first place. I love my friends and I would die for them but in some cases, you are more important. On a scale from ONE to TEN, how driven are you? Freaking 10! Nothing can stop me. How much do you believe LUCK plays a role in success? I would not say that A LOT but for sure it plays a role.
