JULIET TURNER People Have Names Hear This! HRED15 (2008)

Juliet Turner

People Have Names is the 4th studio album from Northern Ireland's Juliet Turner. And since starting her recording career back in 1996, she's opened for some major headliners such as Dylan, U2 and Bryan Adams. But despite critical acclaim, she's not yet managed to take her career to the next level.

And sadly People Have Names probably won't do that either because Juliet is probably in the wrong place to be fully appreciated. For the album reminds very much of the folk / Americana peddled by the likes of Nanci Griffith, who while appreciated this side of the Pond, has had most commercial success in the land of red, blue and white.

People Have Names is a quite lovely laid back album focusing on song writing, some wonderful playing and the instrumentation you wouldn't normally associate with 'Irish' singer songwriter - dobro, banjo, accordion, upright bass, trumpet and horns.

A mature work that deserves a wider audience.
