Houston-born, LA-based artist Ness Julius has put all his energy into building and perfecting his sound. Uniquely personal in his music, Julius blends alternative R&B sounds with hip-hop production that makes for a compelling listen. His brand new project “Pretty Girls Cry Too” showcases his redefined new sound as he looks to make his stamp in the music industry. “This body of work is different than other projects by me because I’ve grown so much over the years, I’m speaking from a much different place now,” he said to us via email.
Throughout the 12-song project, Julius’ melodic arrangements carefully create a cosmic sonic playground. Each track showcases his vocal prowess, capturing presence, and lyrical talents, in addition to his multi-dimensional genre-bending musical approach. The intro track “Die For Me” is an infectious offering that pulls you in and drags you under. Julius’ vocals find a balance of earnest and honest lyrics drenched in an R&B environment. Songs like “Love Letters,” “Passion & Pleasure,” and “Please Me Nice” are empowering, thoughtful, and expressing; allowing you to dive into the project in all the right ways.
There is no denying Ness Julius’ talent as he continues to elevate with each release; he is undeniably one of the most exciting voices in underground R&B right now, and an artist we cannot wait to hear more from in the coming years.
