Maybe you don’t know her name, but chances are you’ve heard her voice.
Los Angeles’ Juliette Commagere has lent her siren of a voice to Maynard James Keenan’s Tool side project Puscifer, the latest self-titled record from road metal baddies Avenged Sevenfold, and, of course, her own band Hello Stranger, who’ve spent the past few months opening for the Foo Fighters across America. So, yeah, Commagere is a busy girl. But after the Fighters tour, she somehow found time to whip up a record of her own. Written in the beautiful reaches of Cali – Big Sur and the Mojave are pretty beautiful – the album features contributions from Joachim Cooder, Martin Pradler, and Jaochim’s dad, some guy you maybe have heard of named Ry Cooder, who played slide on “Nature of Things,” before leaving Commagere with the below quote:
“Juliette is a young modern person writing R&B ballads like Dan Penn. Nobody’s doing that anymore. And that’s 100% true — not 10% true like all that hype bullshit out there.”
