checked out a couple of mp3s from this artist's site, and was simply
amazed at how incredibly talented she was. With her very passionate
and well-rehearsed vocals, Juliette Esper makes even your worst
day seem like a beautiful walk in the park during spring, when the
new life begins to take its shape and the weather is perfect outside.
Sure this sounds like a little too much to believe, but after hearing
the angelic voice of Juliette that's exactly how I felt.
Wagner A&R STORYLINE RECORDS
Esper is a singer and improviser from Dublin. Originally Russian
nowadays she lives in Dublin and enjoys herself jazzing up Irish
lads. Jazz first of all for me represents freedom in music.
I can finally be myself, says Juliette and indeed it is amazing
her confidence and ability to personalize old jazz standards in
a unique, heart-warming and thrilling way.
she is always very feminine she is particularly sexy when you hear
her sing a song like Lover
Man (Oh, Where Can You Be) or 'Round
Midnight. She displays a lot of personality and vocal
agility in her performance. There is something about the way she
places a note somewhere in the middle of her throat and in back
of her voice box goes right into your libido and says, Hello
there, big boy. The songs were recorded at her birthday gig
on the 3rd September 2002 and believe it or not it was the third
time Juliette Esper performed as a jazz singer in her entire life.
It is the discovery of my life- I always loved jazz, but singing
it I thought as something that requires special training. Now I
realise that it must be just a part of you, your feelings and your
honesty. Billie Holiday never took a jazz vocal technique course.
did though; in 2000 she studies jazz improvisation with Louise Gibbsone
of the leading jazz impro tutors in England. When Juliette organised
a workshop for her teacher in Dublin in summer 2002, Louise was
shocked by the way Juliette's voice soundedit changed, matured
and only as a part of simple growing upJuliette didn't sing
in public for two years due to travelling and other reasons. This
was a complete surprise!
for me is a way to open my soul to the world, to prove that looks
can be deceiving but singing is something I just can't fake. I had
to give it up for two years, but now I feel like I had to give up
a part of myself. says Juliette. Her singing is so intimate
as if she is sharing her wildest secrets with you, her vocal presence
is one of essence and honesty. Her stunning looks, her attitude
and professionalism on stage capture your attention instantly. She
has a live performance that leaves the audience haunted by her cherubic
true professional to the art.
