Juice Webster


Bio

Often found curled up with her guitar in bed, on the couch or in any other comfortable space within her home, Juice Webster writes from a place that seeks to 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 alt-folk is both emotionally and lyrically driven.

Despite considering herself to be always growing and changing as an artist, Juice’s songwriting holds an affecting quality, maturity and depth which delivers wisdom beyond her years. A sound that is uniquely hers. 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.

Arriving fully formed in late 2019 with the independent release of her debut EP, “You Who Was Myself”, Juice channelled her energy into connecting to her local community of supporters, friends, fans and family. Now, after the release of its two lead singles, “Let The Dog Out” and “Wanna Be Held”, Juice welcomes the release of her sophomore EP, “More Than Reaction”. It’s a body of work that examines the different ways in which she feels small and at the mercy of her surroundings and place in the world.

The EP was produced with Juice’s partner, Simon Lam, in Blairgowrie during the early stages of 2020, when a large portion of Australia was up in flames. In its recording, you can almost feel the tension between the hazy, lazy environment they found themselves in and the existential terror that was unfolding. It’s an EP that explores the anxieties that come with simply being, and the comfort we find in those around us.

everyone's had these low moments, but not everyone can make them sound as poignant as juice webster. it's skilful and piercingly bare stuff that really affects you from her new ep.

How is it that the quietest ones ache the most? Maybe it's cos this one's so bare that there's nothing to distract from the blank disappointment of the lyric.

Juice Webster has captured a very special feeling with this track. I could be projecting but it's like she's bottled the sense of being thrown off balance by someone, for better or worse. The foreground spins ever so slightly as Juice reaches that undulating chorus build.
