"Brooklyn alt-folk artist Juliet Quick announces EP, shares 'Changeling Part I' [405 Premiere]"

Featuring stirring orchestral arrangements, vivid imagery drawn from New York's Hudson Valley and gorgeous vocals, alt-folk artist Juliet Quick and her new single, 'Changeling Part I,' showcase a fully realized artistic vision rather than a work in-progress.

Quick, a 24-year-old currently living in Brooklyn, has already done a deep dive into the city's music scene, where she frequently hosts shows to fund raise for progressive causes. Now, as she prepares the release of her Changeling EP -- set for release on April 6 -- Quick has begun sharing beauties like 'Changeling Part I.' Featuring her ethereal, Sharon Van Etten-like vocals and an absolutely breathtaking strings composition, the track offers a peek into Quick's mind and how she sees the world.

Impeccably recorded and written, 'Changeling Part I' is the work of a confident artist with a distinctive vision. Artists can rarely accomplish this when they are 74, let alone 24. But Quick's vision for her music is clear, crisp and incredibly moving.

"This is the first section, which establishes the mood and visual landscape," says Quick. "Its instrumentation is orchestral and its form fairly experimental, shifting between driving and spare. Definitely supposed to be a bit ominous/spooky but in kind of a placid, building way that reflects the movement described in the song (driving, riding a train, the movement of the river)."

Stream Juliet Quick's 'Changeling Part I' below and stay tuned for her Changeling EP, due out on April 6. It should be a stunner. New Yorkers interested in seeing Quick play some tunes live can also get tickets for her show tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Elsewhere in Brooklyn. - The 405


""Changeling Part II" Is the Next Installment in Juliet Quick's Alt-Folk Adventure"

Juliet Quick is a naturalist. Intent on highlighting elements of the Hudson Valley in weaving her tale of the "Changeling", the Brooklyn-based alt-folk artist is every bit focused on relating folklore to reality as she is invoking the natural world into her work. That could not be any more clear than in her composition's second movement, "Changeling Part II". It is a delicately-arranged soundscape that fully envelopes its listeners in the natural world, with Quick's vocals dancing gracefully throughout the track with a lilting coo as she highlights flora and fauna of the valley she knows and loves.

Quick tells PopMatters, "This is the second part of the 'Changeling' cycle and the piece with the greatest emphasis on naturalism. It's the lushest, softest section and it really gets into the details of the landscape that the songs are concerned with—the river features most presently here and every specific plant or animal mentioned is native to the Hudson Valley."

"Changeling Part II", with its dreamlike embrace, will feature on Quick's upcoming Changeling EP. The EP is set for release on 6 April. - PopMatters


"Week in Pop"

From the upcoming EP Changeling available April 6, Brooklyn’s own Juliet Quick presented a listen to “Changeling Part I” that mixes classic baroque elements with an urgent contemporary lens. From trad instrumentation, expressive strings & echoing vocals; Juliet combines the classical reflections with the musings of the modern consciousness that will send you to new places in both heart & thought. - Impose


"Other Worldly: Juliet Quick – “Changeling Part I”"

This is amazing music. Maybe this is the music that was being played long ago when fairies were common throughout the world, instead of hidden as now. Remember, Juliet Quick is 24. Think of Kate Bush, but even older world than her 17th century. According to Quick’s bio:

Changeling is a 3-part song series, using the folkloric trope of the changeling, in which a child is stolen by fairies and replaced with an imposter, to explore feelings of alienation from the self and the familiar that characterize early adulthood. They don’t follow a strict narrative, so much as trace different points in the evolution of that psychic experience. The imagery is heavily grounded in the landscape of the Hudson Valley, where the artist was raised. It was recorded in Carmel, NY, where it was engineered and co-produced by Rees Shad in his own studio. The orchestral strings were arranged in a collaboration with Juliet Quick, Rees Shad, and Nathan Kamal.

Juliet Quick is obviously a changeling, but aren’t we all. I love her music. Her guitar is quiet, her voice is perfect and subdued, the orchestration is never overdone. This is the work of a mature artist. - Audiofuzz


"SPILL ALBUM PREMIERE: JULIET K – ALL UNFORGIVABLE THINGS"

A Spill Exclusive Album Premiere

“All Unforgivable Things is ultimately two years of my life. These songs come from a transitional time and a place in myself almost before conscious thought. They were never intended to be “sad” songs, but a lot of them have ended up being about alienation, about trying and failing to communicate something vital, and about the weirdness of being in a mortal body on a dirty, growing, volatile Earth. And while so much of the content is about isolation in some way or another, this album is truly a product of collaboration—the group of extremely talented musicians and engineers that worked on this record with me undoubtedly made it richer and more nuanced. Like most musicians I hope people will find enough pleasure and meaning in these song to want to live with them, to listen to them on the train, to find comfort or understanding in them in some way.” ~ Juliet K

About Juliet K:

22 year-old-Brooklyn based alt-folk musician Juliet K is preparing to release her debut album All Unforgivable Things on March 11th, 2016. Juliet comes to Brooklyn via the Hudson Valley and Skidmore College, where she met collaborating guitarist Oliver Myles Mashburn of NYC rock band Swanky Tiger. Influenced by years of classical vocal training, her music is centered around warm, sensitive vocal performances and lyricisms, intertwined with complex melodies and unusual song structures founded in the avant-garde and experimental folk she takes inspiration from.

Released in August, the first single “Live With Me,” is an organic folk-rock anthem, representing the edgier, electric side of a record that is heartfelt, lyrically-driven, intimate, and at times ethereal. Though the single has a traditional rock band instrumentation, much of the album is textured with strings, intricate ukulele, acoustic and electric guitar, and synths that range from mellow to bright and rhythmic.

The upcoming All Unforgivable Things was produced by Donald Ducote ofAncient Historyand engineered by Kevin Blackler and Paul Johnson (mixing engineer of Beirut’s Lon Gisland EP). It heavily features Oliver Myles Mashburn ofSwanky Tiger on the guitar, with percussion and backing vocals by James Mulhern of What Laura Says. It also features cello by Catherine Wolk of Verdigrls and Nathan Kamal of Stratus Quartet on the violin. It was mixed and mastered by Johnny Kenepaske.

Juliet has been performing songs from this album at New York venues such as Pete’s Candy Store, Sidewalk Cafe, and Palisades, as well as collaborating with other local bands on house shows and private events.

"MEB Premiere: Juliet K: “All Unforgivable Things”"

MEB is proud to unveil a new track from 22 year-old Brooklyn folk artist Juliet K. She has been influenced by years of classical vocal training, her music is centered around warm, sensitive vocal performances. “All Unforgivable Things” has a very soothing feel to it, highlighting Juliet’s voice partnered with violin and ukulele. Here’s what Juliet had to say about her upcoming album: “All Unforgivable Things is ultimately two years of my life. These songs come from a transitional time and a place in myself almost before conscious thought. They were never intended to be “sad” songs, but a lot of them have ended up being about alienation, about trying and failing to communicate something vital, and about the weirdness of being in a mortal body on a dirty, growing, volatile Earth.

"All Unforgivable Things by Juliet K"

The brand new full-length album by Juliet K, “All Unforgivable Things” rocks us back and forth into bittersweet blissful harmony. The Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter “makes good” and takes all on a journey through heartbreak and pure love. It’s the duchess of indie folk we’ve all been waiting for, and she surely delivers.

We open in on a melancholy ukulele in “Will You Make Good Time,” which connects well with her unique vocals. The simplistic character of the song is only the seed to the blossoming flower. As we move into “Nebulous Space” which sounds an awful like late Zeppelin progressions from “Physical Graffiti,” Juliet soulfully sings “wish I could tell you…I didn’t know that they’d go” making it harder to not fall for this record. The crashing back beat and indignant vocals of “Dirt & Nitrogen” will send listeners into a cosmic trance as they’re singing along. “Cut into the ground and fall apart with ease” she rages on like an activist marching on the streets of love. “Sparrows” makes the effort to be the primary ballad of the album. Adding in harmony and cello, Juliet kindly sings wholeheartedly, “everything is rotting…even when it’s green.” Expect to hear “Sparrows” in a low-budget film in the near future as the two characters drift apart.

I was thoroughly impressed with “All Unforgivable Things,” and with its release through bandcamp.com due March 11th, make sure to snag your copy as soon as its released. It will be well worth your time especially if you’re into easy listening ballads and killer upbeat jams. - Music for Wolves


"Juliet K’s New Single, ‘Live With Me’ Is Both Haunting And Captivating"

Brooklyn-based songwriter Juliet K’s first single, “Live With Me” should come with a warning sticker: dangerously addicting. As a professionally-trained opera singer, Juliet has the ability to lure the listener in with her hypnotic vocals. She can whisper and belt out notes you never thought you’d hear on a folk song. This lush folk-rock anthem represents a rougher electric side, but surrounded on all ends with intimate lyrics.

“Live With Me” is all dreams and slightly-yellowing photographs translated into a song. It’s nostalgic, melancholic, pulls at the heartstrings, but at the same time, it’s rousing and captivating. It reminds you of a hollowness you’ve experienced before in your life, a tugging absence you’ve long tried to forget. Juliet K’s vocals acts as the beacon of clarity and the driving force, her lyrics alternating between longing and forgiving, while subtly muted guitar and bass provide an organic ebb and flow of dynamism between the synths and the drums. Like the pull of the moon, the vocals move in and out between the rhythmic tones of the bass and the earnest notes of the guitar. Make no mistake, this is a song you’ll be playing on repeat all night long.

Juliet K’s upcoming debut album, All Unforgivable Things, was produced by Donald Ducote of Ancient History and engineered by Kevin Blackler and Paul Johnson of Beirut’s Lon Gisland EP. Oliver Mashburn of Swanky Tiger provided the guitar, percussion and backing vocals performed by James Mulhern of What Laura Says. The album was mixed and mastered by Johnny Kenepaske. - Thought Catalog
