Another Roadside Attraction
The Savage Juliet originated as a duo of Scott Johnson (guitar),and Kate Dwyer (lyrics & melody) in 2002. Chad Pearson joined TSJ for the recording of their first CD which was the beginning of The Savage Juliet becoming a full band. The song 'Longshot' has received much acclaim, winning second place in the International Songwriting Competition as well as being placed in the upcoming film 'Reeker'. It was rerecorded for their second release with a more dynamic sound. TimeOutNY says 'a band to watch as they climb quickly up the local band ladder.' Womanrock.com has given the first CD 'Longshot' 4 out of 5 calling the lyrics 'nearly flawless' comparing them to bands such as Wilco, Cowboy Junkies, and Aimee Mann. The Deli online has featured them in their new magazine featuring up and coming NYC indie rock bands. Over the last year The Savage Juliet have played regularly at the Mercury Lounge, Tonic, Sin-e and many other established NYC venues working on new material and developing a fuller more dynamic sound.
