You're Stronger Than You Think:
Finding Yourself Through Music, Love & Life!
This is a class about being able to think and work for yourself. I will be telling stories of my own life, career, personal experiences and ways to rise from adversity! Other topics include being an Independent artist vs. being signed to a record label, how to handle bullying, and entrepreneurial advice.
At the end of every workshop, attendees will receive a free signed copy of Juliet's EP, “All or Nothing”
Juliet Simms has lived a lifetime in her 14 years in the music industry, writing hundreds of songs, releasing 4 EPs and 3 Full Length Albums, producing numerous videos including several self produced, touring for 10 years, and appearing as a guest vocalist for a host of bands from All Time Low to Black Veil Brides, Cartel, to Secondhand Serenade not to mention placing second on the hit reality show “The Voice” where she broke 2 Billboard download records for her recordings of “Roxanne” and “It’s a Man’s World”.
Officially beginning her recording career in Los Angeles at age 16 signed to a new record label Umbrella Records, she recorded an EP with Richie Zito who produced and wrote for Elton John, the Motels, and Heart. While recording she began promoting her songs through Myspace and with her band, Automatic Loveletter, quickly became the top Emo band on that platform, attracting attention from several major record labels. After showcasing for music industry icons from L.A. Reid and Jimmy Iovine to Wyclef Jean and Don Ienner she finally signed with Epic Records in 2005 where she and her band recorded a full length album with Matt Squire -later released as the EP “Recover.” With the music industry change over to digital downloads from 2006-2008 she ended up leaving the struggling Epic Records in 2009 and stowing away on Van’s Warped Tour with her guitar in hand. In 2010 Juliet signed with RCA in USA and Sony in Japan where, she filmed the beautiful music video for “Story of My Life”.
The story of Juliet’s life has been as exciting as it has been difficult, often the only female in the room whether in a recording studio, or on tour with all male bands, she discovered that Rock and Roll truly is a man’s world, but that as a female rocker, the adversity she has faced has made her a stronger and more creative artist with better stories to tell.
