Giulia Millanta


Singer-songwriter, Giulia (Julia) Millanta, is a native-born Italian from Florence who now calls Austin, Texas home.

A creative and prolific artist, she has been touring nationally throughout the USA and internationally (Europe, UK) for the past 10 years. She released her eighth solo album “Woman on the Moon” in April of 2022, a LoFi Smoky Indie Folk record with a European Twist. She sings in 4 languages and plays acoustic & electric guitar, upright bass and ukulele. She has shared the stage and collaborated with world famous artists like 10,000 Maniacs, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Charlie Sexton, Marc Ribot, Gabriel Rhodes, Glenn Fukunaga, Howe Gelb and more…

She has been called smart, pensive and cool, a female Tom Waits and a “deeply evocative singer with a dash of Piaf, a sprinkle of Lady Day, a pinch of Norah Jones and a teaspoon of Madeleine Peyroux.” (Mike Greenblatt)

“(Giulia Millanta) continually pulls you out there with her…with melodies, singing, stories, imagery. No matter what language her lyrics may be in…she’s always understandable because her music is, like any fine art, universally recognizable.”
~ Dave Marsh, SiriusXM Radio DJ

“Worldly, sometimes otherworldly sound that makes Millanta unique among Austin singer-songwriters “ (Peter Blankstock- Austin 360)

“Giulia is an extremely talented lady with a gift for lyrics and arrangement second to none.” (Blues Matters)
