Juliet Turner’s live shows have to be experienced – her voice is unusually clear and sweet and her between song anecdotes are amusing, eccentric and off-the-cuff. Omagh-born Juliet is an outstanding singer and songwriter and luckily stumbled into making music. She was given a guitar for her fifteenth birthday and met a poet who told her to start writing her own songs. While at university in Glasgow, Juliet was offered the chance to record her songs with a small independent record label. She moved to Dublin to finish her degree and started playing live shows. Soon Juliet was opening shows for international artists such as Bob Dylan, U2, Sting and Bryan Adams and she also toured with Brian Kennedy and Joan Armatrading.
Juliet won an Irish Meteor Music Award in 2005 and has achieved double platinum sales as well as producing three studio albums and a live album.
Her second album Burn the Black Suit
was recently voted one of the top 100 Irish albums of all time by Hot Press Music Magazine Readers. It gave us songs such as Take the Money and Run, Dr Fell
and title track Burn the Black Suit.
Juliet’s most recent album ‘People Have Names’ in 2008 was described in Hot Press Music Magazine as "an intoxicating example of an adventurous artist moving forward, discovering fresh topics, literate themes and intriguing sounds."
"She’s a natural at encapsulating a marriage between folk and the singer-songwriter genre." Belfast Telegraph
