Juliet Callahan might be climbing up a hill, but she makes it look easy with her sound. There might be countless artists battling for their spot, but Juliet has registered a unique tone and stylistic approach to music. You have heard her before, with Ghost Girl. This is her latest single. Spotlight.
Using a relatively scarce palette, it is apparent that all the attention is towards Juliet Callahan’s vocal execution. Crystal clear and devoid of production and extraction, her tone is the uplifting element for this song. The beat makes sure the groove isn’t lost, and the chorus yanks you in for the whirlwind ride it is. The electronic elements pirouette with her vocals, creating an interesting tornado of sound. If the composition had to be considered more ironclad, there are elements to do that as well. Her outro is relatively plain, just focusing on the groove and the condition of the sound. She seems to have sifted through the pop and rock sound with ease, though she modulates her sound for each style. The hip-hop beats seem to be her cushion of sound, and you can see vault to the skies when she blends her voice into something like this.
This song would be perfect for songs like A Star is Born, and definitely a biopic of her own life. There is a strength to it that is so definitive and true, it holds for the image she carries. Check out Juliet Callahan with her singles like Numb & Burning as well to explore her sound!
