“Why we love JUICE here at GMP: As a songwriter, Juice stood out in a big way. She puts you straight away into the heart of the song, especially with a track like “All Tied Up.” We knew we were listening to something meaningful and honest. There’s no filler with Juice. If she wants to say something, she says it and finds her own sly way of making it cool. And then there’s her voice - her vocal prowess is impressive, and it’s a complete artist that can blow you away with both lyrical chops and a killer unique voice. We were in “wow” mode the moment she began to sing that first verse. And when the chorus came in - she moved up to the top of our selection list. - Chris, Grow Music Project Staff”
