‘In My Room’ With Juice Webster

Juice Webster performs two stunning tracks from her 2023 debut album ‘JULIA’ in the South of France

Melbourne singer-songwriter Juice Webster presents two stunning tracks for the latest edition of Rolling Stone AU/NZ’s  ‘In My Room’ series.

Fresh off her recent support slot for Auckland power pop favourites The Beths on their Australian tour last month, it’s an exciting chance to reconnect with the rising singer-songwriter, who’s no doubt gained a slew of new fans Down Under.

That tour followed Webster’s well-received debut album, JULIA, released last September, which boasted a rich mix of ethereal indie folk and soft rock. With a delicate yet powerful touch, the ten-track album delved into themes including loss, change, grief, and anxiety.

Recorded between country Victoria and the Meat Market in North Melbourne, Webster’s album came to life with her talented live band, which features Kllo’s Simon Lam on production and keys, Ollie Cox on drums, Theo Carbo on guitar, and Noah Hutchinson on bass.

For her ‘In My Room’ session, Webster offers intimate acoustic renditions of two songs from JULIA, namely “Among The Wires” and “Without You”.

Despite the series’ title, Webster’s picturesque session wasn’t confined to her room at all. Instead, it was filmed during her travels in the South of France, capturing the serene ambiance of a terrace framed by sun-dappled trees and mountains (talk about a dream match).

Looking ahead, Webster is set to perform a free show on Monday, April 22nd at Northcote Social Club in Melbourne, where she’ll be joined by fellow Melburnians Garage Sale. If the music wasn’t enticing enough, the 18+ show will also have $20 chicken and eggplant parmas and $10 pints of Mountain Goat.

Making her debut in the music scene as one half of indie electronic duo Hemm, Webster’s solo work also includes EP’s including 2019’s You Who Was Myself and 2021’s More Than Reaction.

On the live circuit, Webster has previously performed at Brunswick Music Festival, Town Folk Festival and supported the likes of Ali Barter, Hachiku, Slowly Slowly, and Mimi Gilbert.
