The streets of the Lower East Side have always been a place where cultures collide and inspire a particular creativity that can only be found in New York City. This neighborhood has produced some of the most influential music, art, and people. You can instantly see why as you weave through the narrow streets. Growing up in the heart of The Lower East Side has inspired my music and my love for the free thinking individuals who make up this crazy city!

Meet Julia Haltigan



Sporting a vintage leather jacket and pulling up on her motorcycle, singer/songwriter Julia Haltigan seem to come straight from the era of 70’s Rock n’ Roll. The fiery performer can be seen in the East Village every night, entertaining a full house, or out touring around the US and UK with the likes of Norah Jones, Judy Collins, or her very own band, The Singles, with Holly Miranda, Kendra Morris, and Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson. An accomplished composer, Julia also worked on various musicals and movie soundtracks.
