Early life and career

Frost grew up in rural Vermont and began to perform publicly in 1992 in Chicago. Her first solo album The Wave (2002) was received positively by various music critics;... Of her writing style, Music Critic Johny Luftus wrote "Chicago singer/songwriter Julie Frost likes to place pleading heartache, clever wordplay, and determined pluck over nuanced arrangements".[1][2] Later on Frost founded her own studio "Happy Child Studios", which produces songs for families and children, and published her album Happy Child Music (2006).

2009 to present

Frost was signed to EMI Music Publishing in 2009 by music executive Big Jon Platt. In 2010, a song cowritten by Frost and Dane John Gorden, "Satellite", won the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 for Germany. Lena Meyer-Landrut's recording of this song subsequently became a number one hit in various European countries, and went to No. 1 on the European singles chart. It was also a minor hit in various other countries.
