Acclaimed trailblazer UPSAHL releases her highly anticipated debut album ‘Lady Jesus’, an expansive 10 track collection of infectious alt-pop songs that radiate don’t f*** with me energy and showcase UPSAHL’s expert storytelling. Today also marks the release of focus single ‘Thriving’. LISTEN TO ‘Lady Jesus’ [HERE]
Of the album, UPSAHL shares, “When I started writing the album, I didn’t know the title, I didn’t know how the story was going to end and I was completely lost. I was in the studio one day, about halfway through writing the album, and it hit me that I was actually the best I had ever been. I felt like I had gone through a total rebirth without even realizing it was happening. That day, we wrote the song Lady Jesus and everything about this album made sense. I accidentally narrated the emotional rollercoaster that led to me finding my personal “Lady Jesus.” People put so much power and faith in religion and turn to others to save them, but this album is about finding that saviour within yourself.”
UPSAHL channels the energy of a woman scorned on her recent video for “Lunatic” a thumping pop driven anthem that screams bad b*tch energy. The rising star recently released the exhilarating video for “Lunatic,” which sees a bloody vengeful UPSAHL go full on psycho as she reenacts the iconic Hitchcock scene.

The intimate, yet all-encompassing evening featured UPSAHL and her three-piece band as they performed the entire album, which will be the only time UPSAHL plays the album through front to back .
