Product Notes

With two critically acclaimed albums of original material under her belt - Aphrodite's Child (2003) and Delicious Chemistry (2005) - Juliet now presents her third and most ambitious album, Licorice Kiss. Referencing influences as diverse as Soul II Soul, the Eurythmics and Soft Cell, she offers up her own take on some 80's classics alongside her own creations that range from toe-tapping grooves to latin-inflected ballads. Sophisticated but never complicated. Intelligent but never intellectual. Juliet's sound perfectly encapsulates the glamour of the jazz divas of a bygone age with a modern, sassy twist. It's been described as a cross between Grace Jones and Peggy Lee with a hint of Amy Winehouse but Juliet calls it "sophisticated music for stylish people" - Glam Jazz! From the lilting groove of the lyrically sensual opener "Licorice Kiss" to the rock guitar solo on final track "Destiny", Licorice Kiss is an album that spans a wide range of moods and influences. These include the reggae-tinged rhythm of "I'm Still Here", a latin-influenced version of the Soul II Soul classic "Back To Life" and Juliet's drum-and-bass flavoured call to end the obsession with celebrity entitled "Ordinary Lives". Juliet invites us to luxuriate in softer, more tender moments with "Mutual Attraction" (a tale of forbidden love with a subtle tango-esque groove) and her take on the Eurythmics seminal track "Here Comes the Rain Again" allows us to experience the rich tones of her beautifully haunting vocals.
