Anjulie is one of those precocious types who was probably born with the word "success" stamped on her forehead. The youngest child of Guyanese parents who immigrated to Toronto, Anjulie Persaud began playing and composing her own music while she was still a teenager. When she was 17, she scored herself an internship at Toronto's Metalworks recording studio. There, she befriended Jon Levine, keyboardist for Canadian R&B outfit the Philosopher Kings. Levine was so impressed with the young singer-songwriter that they began writing together -- for his band, for other artists and eventually on Anjulie's debut album, which dropped in July of 2009. The album's lead single was the vintage soul cut "Boom."
