What is your name? 
My artist name is JUL!ET, a moniker for myself as Juliet Daniel.

What is your genre of music?
Pop, indie pop, alt pop

Give us a little bio about you.
I make pop music that’s nostalgic, girly, catchy in Seattle, WA. Earlier this year I decided to dedicate my career to music: moving away from a past life in big tech and officially becoming a child of the great resignation. I’ve always loved music that’s sneakily subversive, instantly recognizable and likeable but also running its own agenda. My music challenges expectations around what Seattle indie is supposed to sound like, what respectable young professional ambition is supposed to look like, and how women are supposed to talk about relationships. My message and part of what inspires me most is the constant ability to reinvent ourselves and create our own realities.

What made you go into music?
Following my curiosity has gradually grown into my passion for music. I learned to play instruments as a kid but never envisioned it as a viable career until I released my first EP in 2022. I started reading, watching, and listening to anything I could get my hands on. And I had the benefit of amazing mentors who believed in me before I believed in myself.

Who are your influences?
Musically, my longtime influences have been Taylor Swift, Phantogram, and CHVRCHES. More recently I’ve been listening to a lot of Porter Robinson, Charli XCX, and Chappell Roan.

Are you signed?
Nope, I’m currently independent.

You released your latest Single ‘INSTANT’;  tell us more about the single and the meaning behind the song.
Coming-of-age stories are at the root of my music. This single embodies the girlish self-centeredness in longing for someone or something you hardly know, demanding they live up to your wildest expectations.

Describe the track in two words.
Playful, poppy.

What was the writing and recording process like?
I wrote this song in May last year while taking the Charlie Puth songwriting and production class, being a nerd and putting stuff into practice as soon as possible. I was also listening to a lot of hyperpop at the time, and that definitely influenced me to include tonal snares and a busy bass line in the demo. I like demoing out my songs as I write them before bringing them to a producer to run my own experiments on the sound, decide whether the song is good enough to produce out fully, and help communicate the vision.

Who did you work with on the single?
Cade Legat is the primary producer and mixing engineer for this single. We’re working together on other new songs for my upcoming EP, EGOMANIA, as we speak! Kristian Gonzales played the iconic bass line, and Matthew Wolk mastered the track.

Are we expected to see a music video for INSTANT and if so what can we expect from it? 
Absolutely! That’s set for release on my YouTube channel on Wednesday, March 6 at 12pm PST. There will be boys, cars, cityscapes, and lots of pink.

Do you have any live shows coming up? 
February 22 at Conor Byrne Pub is my next one! Planning a PNW tour later this year, so stay tuned for dates outside of Seattle.

Let us know where we can get tickets if so.

What else can we expect in 2024?
I’m rolling out my next EP, EGOMANIA, set to drop this summer. Expect music videos, live shows, and fanfare 🙂

Where do you see yourself now in 5 Years?
Supporting myself financially as a solo artist and songwriter, creating new music always. Hopefully selling out a national tour, landing sync placements on shows/ads/video games, and becoming iconic to the pop music scene.

Do you have social media accounts so your fans can follow you?
