Juliet Garrett is an enigmatic figure. Raised by artistic parents on a remote island in New York state, she now spends the majority of her time between London and Brooklyn. She never seems to be in one place for too long though, and this ever-shifting lifestyle is reflected in her music as her sound evokes comparison to the best seventies songwriters while still remaining fresh. Her debut single, Carry On, is like a living organism, heart beating throughout, and Independent Music News has been given the chance to share this beautifully engaging first offering with our readers.
Warm guitars and a voice that invites you in with its boundless charisma, this is a song that needs to be played again and again. Garrett urges the listener to Carry On through the hardest moments in life by embracing the beauty around them. There is real honesty in her delivery of these words, creating a genuine connection between the audience and the performer with an ease that is rare to say the least. Produced by Fiona Cruickshank in London, the textural soundscape wraps you in its warm embrace from start to finish. The lyrics highlight the importance of living; of not shutting down your usual activities in the face of mental struggles despite how tempting this may seem.
Juliet has already got an impressive history of live shows under her belt, having performed all around the world, and she’s just finished a run of February dates that went down a storm. Here at IMN, we can’t wait to see what Garrett has to offer next, and we hope she can Carry On entertaining us for a long time.
