Singer-songwriter, Giulia(pronounced 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 for the past 10 years and she is now releasing Woman on the Moon, her eighth solo album.

She has shared the stage and collaborated with world famous artists like Charlie Sexton, Marc Ribot, Glenn Fukunaga, Hunt Sales 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, Aquarian Weekly).

Woman on the Moon was recorded in Austin, TX, in the summer/fall of 2021. For the third time in a row Giulia teams up with the talented multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Rhodes (Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell and more) to co-produce her songs and bring them to life. The record was engineered and almost entirely performed by the two of them, with the exception of the drum parts. Several distinctly odd instruments were used in the recordings including a wet towel in the bathroom sink, puppet legs against a wooden box, various guitars played with a cello bow and Giulia’s naked thighs.

These 12 songs take the listener through a journey between separation and unity, sanity and madness, mistakes and redemption, through the masculine and feminine inside of us. A ‘Mad Man on the Moon’, disconnected from his own self, life and experience, explores conflicts and struggles, while a Woman on the Moon walks the “distance in between the stars and the sunrise” , embraces and heals the wounds through connecting and finding The World in her Heart.

In the Spring of 2022, Giulia published her first novel Fratture with an Italian publishing company, Porto Seguro.

A tour of the US, Italy, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands will follow both releases, keeping her on the road till the fall.
