Forget the hype about Jamar Rogers. If you’re looking for an artist who’s the real deal and doesn’t need a lot of polishing, rocker chick Juliet Simms is perfectly packaged and ready to go.
Surprised by my pick? Out of all the winners on last night’s Voice Battle Rounds, 26-year-old Juliet Simms stuck out to me as the most believable artist who knows exactly who she is and where she wants to go with her gravelly busting vocals.
Juliet rocked out Rod Stewart‘s “Stay With Me” with her rusty, Steven Tyler-ish chords — all the girl was missing were bell bottoms and a peace sign. I like her for the fact she isn’t your generic pop artist, which is a category I think some of the other contestants could easily fall under. I mean, come on, as much as Jamar Rogers and Kim Yarbrough can impressively belt out some big notes, there’s still a generic quality to their voices compared to contestants like Juliet, who’s got a unique texture to her voice and a boho chic look that solidifies her persona. She doesn’t need to be molded into an image; she simply is what she projects. And I dig that.
Out of the winners from last night, who do you think stands out as an authentic artist?
