The voice: Juliet Gough

Juliet Gough is a lovely and talented singer/songwriter hailing from Denmark, a folk artist with influences of Midwest America and the evocative nature of Scandinavian mythology. But not be afraid to stand by her spirituality, Juliet openly sings about her yearning for humanity to transcend the veils of ignorance, let go of ego and “flow forever free” into the sweetest of mysteries. "My music is about love, freedom and life's holy, beautiful, mystical moments" she announces.

Her debut album was "Rays Around The Sun", 12 tracks, released in 2009 with huge success. The title track was a hit song in Denmark, as it stayed in massive rotation for almost a year on Danish national radio. Another remarkable track from the album, "Sweet Angel-Blue", is where she lyrically explores the emotional and spiritual qualities of the element of water, as such it continues the strong tradition of vivid and passionate poets of the Sufi tradition as Rumi and Hafiz, evident from the frequent metaphoric use of rain and the healing abilities ascribed to it.

She had first played a series of intimate concerts in smaller venues in Britain, to get a feel for and acclimatize her to the English audience, before launching a full tour.

Among the sites featuring Juliet and her music are: Blogger, OurStage, where she was selected as an Acoustic Act to Watch, IMEEM, TweetMySong, 440 Music, where she placed Numbers, One, Two, and Three -sweeping the Charts, Juke Box Alive, Jambonie, Vicky and Jen, and has a Facebook Fan Club. Juliet is also very popular on MySpace.

Her favourites musicians comprises Ray Lamontagne, Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, Stevie Nicks, George Harrisson, Cat Stevens, John Lennon, Bob Dylan, The Band, Joni Joan Mitchell, Johnny Cash, and specially, Leonard Cohen, she remarks his line "A Thousand Kisses Deep..." as a favourite one.
