What Juliette Jules deliver in her outstanding EP debut, Black Crow, is a lot of powerful, heartfelt emotions into her vocals. At 16-years-old, Juliette has gift with her songwriting and singing abilities. Instantly you’re reminded of Cat Power’s smoky vocals combined with Tori Amos’ piano ability and strong sentimental songwriting lyrics that come from a personal, sometimes painful place.
Still, when you give this EP a listen it’ll be hard to turn away from it. Even on her rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” she manages to make it her own. From the “The Game” which talks about Juliette losing the game of love, to the very powerfully moving “To The Mountains,” Juliette Jules is destined to become a new voice for the coffeehouse/indie circuit.
