Plymouth singer chases dream, signs with record label
A broken collarbone sidelined Julia Brennan last summer, but it might be the best thing to happen to her budding musical career. She had written and recorded three songs months earlier, and used her forced time on the couch to release them on iTunes before emailing a request to a local radio station.

"I sent it in to KDWB’s Make my Monday saying it would make my Monday if you would play my song," says Brennan. "I didn’t know I was going to be on air, but I was. I didn’t know they were going to play 60 seconds of my song, but they did. It was just so odd that it happened, but it was so cool that it did."

That airtime sparked a surge in downloads of Brennan’s song "Inner Demons" and record labels took notice.

"Everything happened so unbelievably fast because I got 60 seconds on Monday and by Tuesday and Wednesday, I had emails from three different labels," says Brennan. "I had never been to New York City, let alone met with a record label. So, they flew me to New York City for the first time, went to an Adele concert, and the next day I signed so it was like the most exciting New York City moment ever."

Brennan signed with Columbia Records and is hoping to release her debut album this year.
