Northern Irish singer/songwriter Juliet Turner has some hints of the old standbys in her folk-inflected music: Nick Drake, Carole King, even a bit of Kirsty MacColl in her vocals. However, Turner's blend of melodic and lyrical folk, pop, and electronics also sits nicely next to contemporaries like Beth Orton and Emiliana Torrini. Turner is a compelling live performer, opening shows for Joan Armatrading in The Royal Albert Hall and Sting in Dublin's Point Depot. In 2005 she picked up an Irish Meteor Music Award for Best Female Performer. 2008 Turner released her fifth album "People Have Names" with producer Keith Lawless. The new batch of songs were warmly received - "a gloriously taut collection of songs" (The Irish Times), "a sweet and subtle album from an artist nowhere near as well known as she should be" (Q Magazine). Turner's version of Lee Hazlewood's "Sugar Town" featured in the movie "The Nines" with Ryan Reynolds. She is working on a new collection of songs for 2013 release
