Ilsey Anna Juber (/ɪlsi bər/, IL-see JOO-bər; born April 17, 1986) is a British American singer and professional songwriter from Los Angeles, California. Before releasing her debut album From The Valley in 2023, Juber co-wrote songs for popular artists such as Beyoncé and Miley Cyrus. She also co-wrote Panic! at the Disco's hit song "High Hopes".

Early career[edit]

Juber began writing songs professionally after her band, which had just signed a publishing deal with Sony, broke up.[1]

Juber co-wrote Mark Ronson's "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart" feat. Miley Cyrus,[2] along with much of Ronson’s Late Night Feelings album with vocals featured on the track "Spinning". In 2020, she worked on "Midnight Sky" as well as two other songs from Cyrus' album, Plastic Hearts. On October 3, "Midnight Sky" hit #11 on Billboard's Adult Top 40. Cyrus performed her song live at the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards. Additionally, Juber co-wrote "All Night" by Beyoncé, and Panic! at the Disco's "High Hopes",[3] which reached #1 on the US Hot AC, Alternative, and Top 40 radio charts. She was also a co-writer on the 2015 single "Powerful" by Major Lazer featuring Ellie Goulding. In 2018, Juber won two BMI awards for her work co-writing "Mercy" by Shawn Mendes and "In the Name of Love" by Martin Garrix and Bebe Rexha. Later in 2020, Juber wrote "This Is Us" for Jimmie Allen and Noah Cyrus, who performed their duet at the 2020 CMT Music Awards. Other notable writing credits include "She Loves Control" by Camila Cabello, "Ocean" by Martin Garrix featuring Khalid, Rita Ora's "Let You Love Me", Robin Schulz's "Headlights", "Disarm You" for Kaskade (both of which she also provided vocal features), and the entire Lykke Li album so sad so sexy. She provides vocals on the track "Soldier" from Stanley Clarke's 2011 Grammy for Best Contemporary Jazz Album, The Stanley Clarke Band.[4][5]

In August 2017, Juber extended her publishing deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing.[6]

Debut album[edit]

On 23 June 2023, Elektra Records announced that Juber would be releasing her first solo album, From the Valley, with that label. The album was released on 6 October 2023 and its first single was "No California."[7]


Juber is the daughter of Hope and Laurence Juber, and sister to Nico Juber.[8] Her father was the lead guitarist for the band Paul McCartney and Wings[2] from 1978 to 1981, and is now a distinguished solo fingerstyle guitarist. Juber’s maternal grandfather was Sherwood Schwartz, the American television producer behind Gilligan’s Island and The Brady Bunch.[citation needed]
