Becoming a jazz singer seemed an unlikely prospect for Juliet who discovered her natural talent for singing at a local music workshop whilst studying for a degree in economics. She had never sung in public before but it wasn't long before she was completely hooked. Within a year she had auditioned for and been accepted on to the postgraduate jazz course at London's prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
Since then, Juliet has released three critically-acclaimed albums that have garnered excellent reviews from critics in the UK and the US as well as widespread radio airplay. She has worked with exceptional musicians including award-winners Seb Rochford, Courtney Pine and Tony Kofi and performed with Courtney Pine at the Barbican for the Jazz Britannia concert broadcast on BBC2 television.
Several tours have taken Juliet and her Glam Jazz style to venues around the UK and she has also performed further afield with sell-out shows in Germany, Italy, Greece, Russia and America.
She has opened for several high profile acts including Georgie Fame, Take 6, Ahmad Jamal and Ron Carter. Her songwriting ability has also been widely praised and she took honours in the jazz category of the 2004 International Songwriting Competition.
Juliet’s latest project entitled Inspired: Celebrating the Divas of Jazz is a tribute to the jazz singers past and present who have inspired and influenced her. Including songs from Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone to Norma Winstone and Cassandra Wilson, it not only showcases some popular favourites but also introduces some lesser-known gems.
