Yulianna, can only be described as the voice of a generation. Her unbridled talent has exhibited itself effortlessly in each endeavored; from her award winning vocal and violin performances in her youth, where she won back-to-back competitions in the Applause Young Artists Showcase, to where she stands now on the brink of pop-stardom with her up-coming album, there’s no denying her immense talent. Yulianna attended the California Institute of the Arts, immersing herself in a wide variety of songwriting styles and genres from baroque to jazz and pop; she took her time studying under a vast network of highly regarded singers, composers and songwriters that inspired her to pursue her dreams. Not surprisingly, she built up a network of creative minds that she began to work with, including; Peter Rafelson (Jackson Browne, Elton John), Dave Aude(Coldplay, U2), and Carmen Rizzo (Seal, Dido) as she set out to write and develop songs for various projects.
Not long after earning her Masters degree she set to work on her first album, Race Car, with help from Grammy-nominated producer Robin Nixon.  Directed by Academy Award-winning director Waleed Moursi, the video “Race Car” won Best Music Video at the Colorado Film Festival, the first of many achievements for Yulianna. With stellar performances at renowned venues like the World Disney Concert Hall, the Sundance Film Festival, as well as famous Los Angeles venues like the Viper Room, the Key Club and The Mint Room; there has never been any doubt that she’s on her way to an amazing career that included a consistently growing list of accomplishments.


Her biggest hit to date has been the epic collaboration between herself and Grammy-winning produced, Walter Afanasieff (Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera) and lyricist Lindy Robbins (Faith Hill, Selena Gomez), entitled “Forgiveness.”  It’s an ethereal and stunning display of Yulianna’s vocal prowess, as well as a showcase for her talents as a burgeoning songwriter. The song and coinciding video garnered an incredible buzz with over a million views on YouTube, even being submitted for Best Instrumental Arrangement with Accompany Vocals for the 55th Annual Grammy Awards in 2012. The explosive video won a myriad of awards including Best Music Video at both the Naperville Film Festival (NIFF) and the Las Vegas Film Festival (LVFF); while the single itself has seen radio play internationally on major FM stations such as Los Angeles’ KDAY and Las Vegas’ KCEP as well as London’s ChoiceFM. The critical acclaim of “Forgiveness” was the perfect jumping off point for future collaborations and the ultimate release of her first major dance/pop album.

Yulianna’s first full-length dance album, “Californ-i-a,” was entirely written and produced by herself and established writer/producers RAS(The Wanted, Jordin Sparks, Big Time Rush) and Spencer Nezey (Electropop, Jupiter Rising). Yulianna’s friendships with stellar musicians have allowed her to have Grammy Nominated guitarist John Brown welcomed into the fold, creating stifling hot backdrop to her operatic, powerhouse vocals infused into pop music perfection in much the same way Mariah Carey has done. The album possesses influences from every genre, from the hard hitting, club-banging beats of Rihanna to the self-affirming, synth-infused pop of Lady Gaga. Throw in a touch of old-school hip-hop and even a bumping reggae-esque track, Yulianna has taken her vast knowledge of music and incorporated it into an absolutely unique album that speaks to who she is. It’s not surprising that with influences spanning a variety of artists from Celine Dion to Freddie Mercury and Madonna, she would find a way to incorporate everything into a well-crafted dance album that demands the listeners attention from start to finish.  Set to be released in January of 2013, “Californ-i-a” is an inspiring and eclectic mix of pop tunes that is sure to usher in the age of Yulianna. Keep your eyes and ears tuned in to watch as she sets off on this new and exciting chapter of an already

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
