Throughout February, we're spotlighting Black creators we admire and who inspire us through a weekly series of video interviews.

This week, we speak with Julia Kwamya, a Brooklyn-based indie musician and multi-disciplinary artist with a catalog of creative and moodily beautiful music that she's released under her own name as well as under the moniker Germans.

Julia used Kickstarter to successfully fund her debut EP, Feel Good About Feeling Bad, which is now available digitally and on vinyl. Julia was also a Kickstarter Creator in Residence in 2018. During this program, we invited several Kickstarter alumni to join us in our workspace and offered them resources they needed to complete their projects.

For more videos, visit our site, where you can also find interviews with Black creators from The Creative Independent, as well as live Kickstarter projects by Black creators to pledge to and support.
