Early in her career, UPSAHL released songs which gained much-deserved recognition throughout the Phoenix music scene. As a graduate of the Arizona School for the Arts, she went on to ignite a groundswell of fan adoration and tastemaker praise by way of numerous indie alternative gems. "Can You Hear Me Now" achieved a palpable viral buzz followed by the widely praised single "Drugs," which has been used in nearly 2,000,000 TikTok videos, reaching #6 on the TikTok Viral Chart and #1 Sound on the TikTok Trends Chart. "Drugs" led to a momentous year for the "up-and-coming indie-pop queen" -- according to Alternative Press.
On the live front, UPSAHL has taken the stage at Lollapalooza and supported acts such as PVRIS, Olivia O'Brien, Joywave, BROODS, and Young the Giant. YouTube claimed UPSAHL as their 'Artist on the Rise,' Nylon proclaimed, "She's on her rock star ish," and NME declared she "has a knack for fusing fizzy hooks with her drawling delivery of pithy lyrics. The result -- her vibrant alt-pop bops."
In 2020, UPSAHL released her second EP Young Life Crisis, which Billboard crowned as one of the Top 25 Pop Albums of the year. UPSAHL then undertook her first co-write on "Good in Bed" for Dua Lipa's GRAMMY Award winning blockbuster Future Nostalgia, and recently lent her pen to Anne-Marie's "Kiss My (Uh Oh)," which was an instant Top 10 hit in the UK. She also co-wrote Madison Beer's fiery single "BOYSHIT," as well as Mike Shinoda's upbeat anthem "Happy Endings," which features her and iann dior and hit #9 on the US Alt Radio Chart. Complete with throwback alternative vibes, femme fatale charm, and her signature unfiltered lyricism, UPSAHL's new singles "Douchebag," "Melatonin," "Time of my Life," and "Lunatic" are out now. They mark the first songs off of her highly anticipated full-length debut album out on October 8th, 2021
