Story behind your band/artist name: I was born with it! No one calls me Juliet in my "real life" though - only my childhood piano teacher, and my doctors.
Band Members: Juliet (piano/keys and vocals); plus a rotating group of amazing musicians when I play with a full band
What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : I've lived in the DC area for nearly 10 years - currently I'm based in Silver Spring.
At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: One of my first gigs was singing at Amateur Night at the Apollo Theater in Harlem. I sang a Blu Cantrell song, and made it through without getting booed off stage. After that, pretty much nothing makes me nervous anymore.
A few years ago I recorded a cover of a Lady Gaga song and posted it on YouTube - and Lady Gaga herself retweeted it! It was a pretty cool shout-out.
I also do musicals here in DC! I've recently performed in Chess, Titanic, Violet, and Les Miserables - among others.
