On The Table Read Magazine, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, LGBTQ+ non-binary alt pop/rock singer/songwriter Jules Paymer has released new single and an accompanying music video for Mommy Issues.
For a song that seems so conceptually heavy, it’s really just dirty, fun, and satirical. I was seeing a girl who was WAY too old for me and was trying to convince myself that I wanted to be with her. I think deep down she was actually just satisfying my messed-up relationship with my mom. I think *maybe* she was helping me heal some old wounds.
Jules Paymer found a love for music at age 7 while playing bass in a garage band alongside Lydia Night, the future star of “The Regrettes”. After learning guitar and piano, by age 9 Jules was writing full songs. After finishing high school in LA, Jules moved to Nashville, a city nicknamed ‘Songwriting Bootcamp’.
Settling back in Los Angeles in the summer of 2022, Jules focused on making friends, writing songs, and exploring he prism of the modern music industry with a unique perspective. Their original songs and song flips caught traction on social media, piquing the interest of artists including Hayley Williams, Fletcher, Noah Kahan, Joshua Bassett, and Royal and The Serpent.
Jules’ first release of 2023, “The Daughter That My Mother Wanted” (Ft Miki Ratsula) earned praise from Billboard, Ones To Watch, Earmilk as well as Paramore lead singer Hayley Williams who posted the song on her IG to 3.5m followers. “Past Life,” a song about an ex who refused to acknowledge Jules’ pronouns after they came out as non-binary, sparked contentious debate online, making Jules a target for both praise and hate speech.
Hate comments don’t bother me. I’ve got a lot saying ‘you’re going to hell,’ ‘you are lying to yourself,’ or ‘you’re a girl.’ Those I can deal with. But I’ve never gotten a comment saying ‘this is a shitty song,’ and that’s how I know I’m doing something right.
