Founder of Vocal Explosion
Composer, Musical Director & Singer
‘BLISSED OUT A CAPELLA’
– THE INDEPENDENT
Juliet Russell is the founder of Vocal Explosion, an umbrella organisation for all things Vocal.
Juliet Russell’s voice has been described as “brilliantly haunting” by STAGE MAGAZINE and her compositions as: “beautiful and mesmerising” by MUSICIANS UNION MAGAZINE.
Thousands of participants have sung her work – which has been heard in over thirty countries from Womad to International Forums in Barcelona, Mexico, NYC.
Juliet’s Solo performances of her compositions have been performed on the rooftop of the National Theatre to Castles, Football stadiums and Mayan temple sites.
Her signature sound weaves world influenced music with strong bass rhythms and an allusion to the ancient, often writing in her own simple phonetic language which is evocative, accessible internationally and has a strong filmic quality.
Juliet has been composing for over 25 years, for large scale site-specific performance with an audience capacity of 20,000, working with Choirs-(including her own three), brass bands, Bhangra bands, strings sections, firework displays and aerial work to name a few.
Commissions and Solo work include Royal visits, dance Companies, Theatre, Film, Radio and TV.
Juliet is currently working on several commissions and recording new work funded by Arts Council England, which will be launched in early summer 2021.
