Niall Horan and Julia Michaels to make music together
Niall Horan’s current support act, Julia Michaels – who has penned songs for Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato and Fifth Harmony – is set to write songs with the Irish hunk.
Niall Horan is set to write songs with Julia Michaels.
The Irish heartthrob is on the road with the songwriter behind Justin Bieber’s hit song ‘Sorry’ on his ‘Flicker Tour’ , and now they are planning to head into the studio together after forming a “brother-sister” like relationship.
Julia told the Daily Star newspaper: “He’s fantastic, we have this very brother-sister thing and tease each other the entire time, and act like we don’t like each other although we love each other so much.”
The One Direction star previously revealed he’d love to work with Julia – who has also written for the likes of Fifth Harmony and Demi Lovato – as he is a huge fan of her.
The opening act of The Niall Horan Flicker world tour is 24 year old American singer/songwriter Julia Michaels who may have been a new name to some of the crowd but has a couple of Grammy nominations and numerous other awards in the US.
He said: “She’s one of the best songwriters on the planet so I’ll be looking to sit down and write with her.”
Niall is set to head back into the studio to start work on the follow-up to his hugely successful debut LP ‘Flicker’ – which came out in October – after completing his world tour, which comes to an end on October 3 at the INEC in County Kerry, Ireland.
A tour like this is a great platform for any artist to merit a support slot on and she should go on to bigger things in the UK. To be honest though the vast majority were here for one reason only.
Meanwhile, the ‘On the Loose’ singer recently recorded a performance of songs from ‘Flicker’ with a 45-piece orchestra.She delivered what was an almost perfect pop set and won herself a few thousand new fans.
The singer teamed up with conductor Gavin Murphy and the RTE Concert Orchestra for the unique performance last week at RTE Radio’s Studio 1.
Niall commented: “I made an album that came from the heart, my heart is in Ireland and I feel that there’s no better way than to go on national television and play those songs with a 45-piece orchestra – and the RTE Concert Orchestra is one of the best in Europe, if not the world.”The recording is set to be broadcast on RTE.
