19-year-old JUJ is proof of the power of believing in yourself against all fear and doubt. At age 17, the Philadelphia-bred singer/songwriter dropped out of high school and moved to L.A. on her own. Just as she’d started to establish herself in the L.A. music scene, an untreated case of Lyme disease forced her to move back home and put her dreams on hold. Shaken up but still determined, JUJ returned to L.A., pushed forward with her music and quickly setting to work on her debut EP.
