ÔøºÔøºÔøº”What do you do if you have a double platinum album, 3 studio albums, and a Meteor Music award under your belt? Dublin songstress Juliet Turner chose to go back to college, Rivers Cuomos style. Not that she has packed in her passion for making heart-warming music, as she has proved on her anticipated new album “People Have Names”, a slow-burning collection of folk songs that sees Turner return to her strengths, although shedding her more up-tempo moments. Its a voice that would easily seep into the FM sheen of Radio 2 (part Kate Rusby, part Beth Portishead) yet there’s a depth here that also mirrors a growth in Turner’s songwriting, one far too complex for mere Sunday drivers.”

“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. ” – Peter Whalley, “Get Ready to Rock. Com” Aug 2008
