Her captivating voice enveloped with soothing
harmonies draws on her heartaches
and real life experiences with self-penned,
commanding, poignant lyrics.

Graham Marsh (Cee-Lo), Wayne Beckford,
Blac Elvis (Beyoncé, Usher),
Alan Glass (Aretha Franklin, George Benson, Earth Wind and Fire), Hardwork & Mavelle (Damian Marley & Sean Paul).
And 'Bitter Sweet' - an acoustic album - a collection of heartfelt songs written by her over six years and dedicated to her lifelong best friend Amy Winehouse .
JUNE 2016 will see the release of Juliette's anticipated third album 'BUILD UP THE STRONG', a full album dedicated to her first love Reggae music.

In July Juliette made a very important decision in assisting the directors with facts and events
for the OSCAR and BAFTA award winning documentary 'AMY'.
Juliette also appeared as a prominent role in the film, which was released in cinemas worldwide
and is now the biggest selling British documentary of all time.
Juliette describes the experience as one of the most traumatic and challenging experiences of her life.
