[[caption-width-right:189:Taking Over Website/YouTube One Song at a Time]]

Website/YouTube user Julia Nunes plays the ukulele and harmonizes with herself on covers of pop music by artists including Music/BenFolds, Music/TheBeatles, Music/{{Weezer}}, Music/SayAnything, Music/KanyeWest and Music/DestinysChild. Most often a SelfBackingVocalist she has made her way in the music industry completely through sheer talent and self promotion. Also has a legion of adoring fans.

!!Tropes used in Julia Nunes' songs include:

* AlbumTitleDrop: "Fair Weather" from ''Settle Down'':
-->And they say 'Julia, just settle down,
-->There's room for the new girl in town'.
* TheCoverChangesTheGender: Averted in her version of 3 Oh! 3's "Don't Trust Me" - there'd have to be a lot of lyrical changes to make the gender switch work anyway. And several others, such as "Build Me Up Buttercup" and "Mr. Brightside".
* DarkSkinnedBlond: In the summer, by her own admission
* DoesNotLikeShoes: She prefers playing barefoot whenever possible, although often concert venues insist she wear shoes for safety reasons. She even appeared barefoot as a musical guest on ''Series/{{Conan}}''.
* GenkiGirl: She can seem a bit hyper in her vlogs and outtakes.
%%* GirlNextDoor
* HilariousOuttakes: Sometimes appended to the end of her youtube videos.
* {{Jerkass}}: Apparently most of her ex-boyfriends were this, if her music is anything to go off of.
* LyricalDissonance: "Odd" for starters, there are many more.
* MeaningfulName: The popularization of the ukulele is attributed in part to Manuel Nunes (also Nunes rhymes with "tunes").
* MinisculeRocking: The album ''Settle Down'' includes three "vignettes" - "He Is Mad" and "I Wasn't Worried" are both just shy of a minute, while "Pizza" is a mere 23 seconds.
* UsefulNotes/NewYorkState: A New Yorker but not from UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity.
* TheNapoleon: Averted, she may be short, but she appears to be very comfortable with it, and frequently plays off of/makes joke around her lack of vertical growth.
* RearrangeTheSong: ''Settle Down'' includes a handful of re-recorded songs from her earlier albums. Usually, these rearrangements add more instrumentation to songs that originally just featured ukulele or guitar and vocals. "Comatose" already had a very similar full band recording released, but the ''Settle Down'' version adds a slower, more dramatic introduction.
* {{Scatting}}: "Into The Sunshine" has a repeated section where the lyrics are just "ba ba ba".
* SelfBackingVocalist:
** Over 90% of the videos on her youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/jaaaaaaa
** Most of the time this is true on the album versions of her songs. ''Settle Down'' has several songs that prominently feature harmonies by groups of actual backup singers though - she's said that this was inspired by all the [[AudienceParticipationSong singing along]] that her live audiences do.
* SunnySunflowerDisposition: Fittingly matching her page image.
* WhenSheSmiles: Much like another famous [[Creator/JuliaRoberts Julia]], she has a radiant smile that transforms her face.
