Julie Biens embraces “Life 3.0”

Artists like Nick Cave (age 66) and Nile Rodgers (age 71) are living proof that you can indeed have a “third act” in showbiz and in life itself. That’s the subject of a great new song called “Life 3.0” by NYC area artist Julie Biens.

Biens writes insightful songs that make “adulting” cool again. Her previous single “Devil In The Details” is a wistful ballad reminiscent of Mary Chapin Carpenter, who snagged some Grammy awards in the ’90s and will hopefully have a third act soon.

“I wrote ‘LIFE 3.0’ to rebrand the midlife crisis as a ‘fork in the road’ and an opportunity to grow,” says Biens. “When I turned 50, I was going through my own feelings of restlessness and started wondering how to re-energize myself and not just settle into what I know. In my search, I found my way back to singing and then I started to try some songwriting. Once I started writing, I felt alive again. I  just fell madly in love with it. The song is about my journey, but it’s also about my friends and neighbors.”
