(Nashville, Tennessee – 27, 2018) – Nashville-based Pop recording artist, Juliana Hale, has released her new single, the sonically adventurous “Overrated,” available now at all digital retailers and streaming outlets. The song is the first single from her upcoming EP, Small Talk, available Spring 2018, and the follow-up to her single “Home.”
Produced by Grammy Award-winner, Skidd Mills as well as Independent Music Award winner Billy Dawson, “Overrated” juxtapositions the vocal prowess of Hale’s uniquely deep alto amongst a backdrop of poignant lyrics and an upbeat musicality. Co-written with Noah Henson (producer of Kane Brown’s debut EP, Closer/ Christian rock band Pillar), the danceable “Overrated” is actually based upon the petite singer’s own heartbreaking personal experience.
“’Overrated’ was inspired by a complicated break up in my past. The guy I was dating didn’t really know what he wanted. I wrote the song at the point when I decided the whole situation just felt ‘Overrated.’ I think it’s something a lot of people can relate to,” says Hale.

Initially hailing from Laguna Hills, CA, Hale’s parents moved the family to Nashville when Hale was 10 years old to help their daughter pursue her dream. A talented multi-instrumentalist, Hale began playing guitar and writing songs in fourth grade. She’s since added piano as well as ukulele,
bass, and flute to her instrumental repertoire. Describing her music as “unique indie pop with a clean and empowering message,” the intense songwriter has over 1,000 songs in her catalog.
Hale released her first EP,
Dance in the Rain, when she was just 14 years old; however, health issues affecting Hale’s voice arose soon afterward and her dreams were temporarily put on hold. During this time, the young singer spent countless hours with vocal coaches, reclaiming her voice. This period in Hale’s life has had a significant impact on her writing and her musical journey.
“When I look back on this time where I was struggling, I can see God’s hand and realize there was a blessing waiting for me, I just had to be patient enough to find it. During my sickness, I had plenty of time to write music. I wrote over 250 songs during those two years. I played my guitar until my fingers bled and the callouses thickened. I became a much more skilled musician and I was determined to get out there and share my music with the world,” says Hale.
The hard work paid off: Hale was invited to perform at the 2018 Leather & Laces Super Bowl Pre-Party hosted by Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy, performing alongside Flo Rida, Brandi Cyrus, and DJ Automatic. The young star-in-the-making is looking ahead to crisscrossing the U.S. on tour as she supports her upcoming EP, Small Talk, in 2018.
