Juice Webster


Bio

It’s not often an artist can explain your own feelings back to you as clearly as Juice Webster does. Despite considering herself to be a relatively new artist, Juice’s songwriting holds an affecting quality, maturity and depth which delivers wisdom beyond her years. Her lyrics linger. Her harmonies hold weight. And the moods she casts through the moments she recounts permeate their way through the very core of its listener.

Often found curled up with her guitar in bed, on the couch or in any other comfortable space within her home, Juice often writes from a place that helps her find meaning in the world around her. After being brought up on a healthy diet of artists such as Nick Cave, Aimee Mann, Elliott Smith and The Cranberries, it’s no wonder that Juice’s own brand of revealing alt-folk is emotionally and lyrically driven.

Arriving fully formed in late 2019 with the independent release of her debut EP, “You Who Was Myself”, Juice channelled her energy in connecting to her local community of supporters, friends, fans and family. She began performing intimate shows in Melbourne’s local bars and cafes, clubs and gardens, with support growing inch by inch, at every step and stage. Not only did local radio, blogs, other artists and all those who encountered her refreshing take on an age old genre adore her music, they began sharing it to all of those around them.

Finally, after almost a year, Juice returns with her latest single ‘Let The Dog Out’. It’s a song that seeks to address those heavy feelings we sometimes all get when thinking about life’s ‘big questions’. She explores how even though we may try our best to shake those feelings off, whether it’s by going for a walk, being around other people, or just trying to believe in something greater than ourselves, sometimes we’re just not able to.

The track was produced with Juice’s partner, Simon Lam, in Blairgowrie during the early stages of 2020. In its recording, you can almost feel the hazy, lazy environment in which ‘Let The Dog Out’ was laid down. That summer energy hanging softly in the air. You can feel it in every word Juice sings and between the strums of her guitar. It’s tender folk-rock like you’ve never heard before.

Dark and inviting, Juice draws you in slowly and serenades with that angelic voice contrasted with a bit of a heavier guitar melody. This is so special

Having a proper brood sesh to this one from Juice Webster. It's got this quiet intensity to it which Juice builds so carefully, the repeated vocal becoming this kind of bruised credo.

One of those songs that creeps up on you. A beautiful build, given weight with that guitar, and the vocals working to ground the song in a beautiful loop. Nice one.
