Julianna Barwick is an American musician who was born in Louisiana and raised in Missouri. She currently lives in Brooklyn. Her music is built around multiple loops and layers of her voice.

Barwick, who credits a rural, church choir upbringing for her sound, begins most tracks with a single phrase or refrain, then uses a loop station and the occasional piano or percussive instrument to build the song into a swirling mass of lush, ambient folk.

She released her first two collections of songs, the full-length Sanguine and the EP Florine, in 2009 and 2010, respectively, before issuing her Asthmatic Kitty debut, The Magic Place, in 2011. Her newest album, Nepenthe, was released via Dead Oceans on August 20, 2013.

Barwicks diverse past has also included collaborative albums with Ikue Mori and Helado Negro, a remix commission from Radiohead and her song Vow remixed by Diplo. Upcoming Barwick projects include a film score and a music box.
Pitchfork: among the best and most artful ambient music being made today.
Diplo: Barwicks music is like Care Bears making love.
Wayne Coyne: Im a fan of what she doesshes really pretty crazy, and weird, and funny.
NPR: Downright medicinal, altering the listeners surroundings in ways that make them uncomfortable, yet still wondrously inviting.
New York Times: Her ethereal multi-tracked harmonies have the devotional quality of gospel choirs, and the oddball allure of Bjork or Yoko Ono
