Find out why Juliet was inspired to do her The Entertainment Institute workshop "Girl Power - Rise Above in the Music Industry and Life" after the jump and sign up for her class here!
Why were you interested in taking part in The Entertainment Institute’s Music Business Workshops?
A few reasons I wanted to partake in the workshops. One being that I felt like it was my responsibility as an artist and a leader to help guide or educate kids in the field I am in, so they wouldn’t necessarily have to go through some of the hoops,loops,holes and crap I went through. I wanted to pay it forward so to speak and maybe save some headaches. When I was growing up I had some strong female influences within the music industry that I looked up to and if I had had the same kind of opportunities to speak to them as kids do today with musicians I would have picked their brains until nothing was left haha. I wish I had this experience myself so I’m more than happy to spend time with kids to let them know whats up. I also wanted to do the workshops because within the warped community there are SO MANY BOYSSSS. Not discriminating just want to help empower the girls of today and tomorrow that they can do it too and achieve whatever dreams they may have. Last reason I wanted to do this was because I know what its like to become a women in the world today and the issues we face and battles we deal with, whether its body image, bullying, sexism, being mistreated, depression, self confidence issues and so on. I see it online everywehere, Ive been through it and have gotten out of it, so If i can help just one girl or boy with anything above I would be very happy. I’m hoping i can help a lot more tho;)
Why should kids sign up for your workshop?
If anything above interests you than thats why haha. It’s gonna be a positive workshop filled with real talk and the opportunity to ask me anything you want. I’m here to help and give advice wherever.
3 Why did you choose to teach this topic?
It’s the same reason I write the songs I write about. I’m passionate about it. It’s what makes me, me and If I can use that to help others than HELL YEAH!
What Warped artist from the past do you wish your younger self could learn from in one of these workshops and why?
I would say Gwen Stefani from No Doubt. And because she did it fucking right. To be able to ask her how she did it. Without having to guess my way through the industry may have helped me out a bit and taken a little less time haha. I’d still even today like to talk to someone like her. There’s always more to learn and grown from.
What are you most looking forward to this summer?
Playing on stage everyday with a full band again. It’s been way too long so I’m really excited to get out there and rock it with my new EP “All or Nothing”
I’m also really excited about my new merch line. I helped design the whole thing so I’m pretty proud of it being so into fashion and all! XD
