Simms insists on uncompromising honesty in all that she creates, exorcising heartbreak and joy alike with unapologetic urgency and authentic rawness. She brings a timeless essence to the modern age with songs that are both classic and forward thinking. Simms purposefully draws on a deep well of classic rock, grunge, blues, and Motown, with a unique edge distinctly of her own creation. Listen to the evocative soul-baring intimacy of “Take Me” and the insistent groundswell of “Trouble Finds You.” These are but two pieces of an ever-evolving puzzle shaping an undeniably strong body of work. “We all have heartache. We all struggle,” she says. “But there is beauty, hope, and happiness to be found on the other side. I want to convey real life and truth. There is almost nothing I’m afraid to address. It all finds its way to the paper and to the microphone.”
Juliet’s rendition of “Roxanne” shot to #1 on the iTunes Chart and broke into Billboard’s Hot 100. In addition, her cover of “It’s a Man, Man, Man’s World” on NBC’s “The Voice” was met with such a raucous reception, host Carson Daly proclaimed it was the loudest he’d ever heard from that stage. The song also hit Hot 100.
