Julie Bergan (born 12 April 1994) is a Norwegian singer and songwriter born in Skien, Norway. Bergan started releasing covers on YouTube at the age of 16, eventually signing a record deal with Warner Music Norway in 2013. In 2015 she attained mainstream success with her single All Hours, crossing borders to Denmark and Germany, before breaking though in her native Norway in 2016 with Arigato peaking at number one. Bergans major-label debut album Turn on the Light was released in 2018. She returned to the number one spot in 2018 on VG-lista after collaborating with K-391, Alan Walker and Seungri on "Ignite".


In 2012 she recorded the song "Supernova" with Cir.Cuz, which peaked at number five on the Norwegian Singles Chart. She participated in Melodi Grand Prix 2013, the national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 with the song "Give a Little Something Back", which she wrote with Ben Adams and Sara Skjoldnes. She did not qualify from the semi-final in Steinkjer. In September 2013, she was signed by Warner Music Norway. In early 2014, she released her first single, "Younger".

After the release of her single she wrote and release a number of songs, but it was first after the release of her single "Arigato" she became known beyond national borders. The song reached number five in the Swedish singles chart, and was nominated at the Norwegian Grammys in 2016 for Song of the Year.
