Sounding Different

During the day at Juliet, we like to fill the restaurant with anything from Fleetwood Mac to our favorite 70s or 80s music. If I'm ever in charge of the music, it's usually The Cranberries. At dinner, you’ll find playlists themed around our current menu. Right now that means Greek folk songs Wednesday through Saturday and Italian movie soundtracks on Sundays.  But things in the bathroom sound a little different right now.

A few weeks ago, Josh tasked me with putting together a playlist based off of NPR Music’s Turning the Tables project. In NPR's own words Turning the Tables is “an ongoing project from NPR Music dedicated to recasting the popular music canon in more inclusive – and accurate – ways,” by highlighting the women and non-binary artists in the music industry. The list that kicked off their project was the 150 greatest albums made by women artists between 1964 and the present. They have since compiled more reviews and pieces on the important women leading the music industry.
We were inspired to use their project to both celebrate those same artists, and include a few of our own more contemporary and some Boston-based musicians that we love. In the process of this project, I enlisted the help of Kristina Latino, the founder of Cornerscape Music (and sometimes Juliet collaborator) who I consider an expert on the Boston music industry. She told me about artists Lula Wiles, Aubrey Haddard, Hayley Sabella and Alisa Amador who are Boston-based artists creating new music. You'll find a lot of their music on our playlist. I've also added Maggie Rogers, H.E.R., and Kacey Musgraves to the list as they’ve been two artists I’ve seen framing the music landscape in the past year. Click the button below to find the playlist. There are lot of old favorites on there, but take a listen and you might find something new.

This past March, I had the opportunity to represent of Juliet at the Food Book Fair in New York alongside our Boston friends, GRLSQUASH. Bringing of Juliet to an audience outside of our corner in Somerville was huge for our small publication. However, the biggest highlight of the fair was meeting so many other publishers who are cultivating a love of food onto the pages of a magazine. As a souvenir of that trip, I brought back publications we discovered there like Salt & Pepper Magazine, Kitchen Table magazine, Glou Glou, and the wine zine. When you stop in, you can find them on our reading shelf alongside some of our other current reads.
