Like many of us Buzznet users, I’m extremely excited to be attending Warped Tour this year! It will be my very first time at Warped, so the anticipation is killing me! To help with this, I’m already planning all of the bands/artists that I want to catch while I’m there.
So I’ve decided to do a post every week on a band/artist that I hope to at least catch a glimpse of this time around! My Warped date is July 18th, in Cleveland, OH, but I plan on doing this series until the tour ends in August. If you’ve been to Warped already and have seen any bands/artists that you think I should check out, I’d love to know!
And so we begin with Ms. Juliet Simms!
With the help of All Time Low, as usual, I learned about Juliet through the cover of “Careless Whisper” they did with her and the help of 3OH!3. Although I have known about Juliet Simms long before she was on The Voice, that is where my real love and respect for her began. I started paying more attention to her and it certainly wasn’t hard.
She caught my eye first with her amazing, beauty, but most importantly, she caught my ear with her stunning voice. It is like nothing I have ever heard. She has a rough edge to her voice, but that doesn’t hide its amazing beauty. It’s real and raw, bringing out her every emotion when she sings. She’s been described as a “vocal powerhouse” and I couldn’t agree with that more.
Juliet was the former lead singer of Automatic Loveletter, but is now establishing herself as a solo artist. She began this journey as a contestant and protégé of CeeLo Green on The Voice. I watched her every week, buying her songs and voting to capacity, just like many others. The support from her fans pushed her all the way to the season finale where she ended up being the runner-up. Although I’m biased and believe that she deserved to win it all, this is still an out-of-this-world, amazing accomplishment.
Since that season of The Voice, I’ve been following her and keeping up with her career. Still as beautiful and happy as ever, Juliet has signed to Republic Records and is working on getting her new CD out this summer!
She just recently announced dates that she’d be on for Warped Tour and I have never been more excited to find out that she’s coming to the one that I’ll be attending.
If you haven’t heard of Juliet, actually, if you haven’t heard her voice, you should check out her newest song “Wild Child”, below!
If you’re going to be attending Warped this year, what bands are you going to see? I’d love to know, so leave a comment below!
