Listen to Juice Webster’s sprawling debut album ‘JULIA’

Melbourne musician Juice Webster chronicles loss, change and anxiety on folk-pop debut JULIA. 

Juice Webster has today (September 15) released her long-awaited debut album, JULIA. The 10-track project features the singles Headaches, In The Zone and Returning, the last of which serves as the album’s wistful opener. From there, JULIA’s tracklist traces Juice Webster through moments of loss, change and uncertainty. 

The album spans wry yet soothing cuts like Two Hands to the nervy tension of Black Coat, Black Skirt, as well as a return to Juice Webster’s folkier roots on How Can I and Without You.

JULIA was recorded between rural Pakenham Upper and North Melbourne in Victoria, with assists from producer Alex O’Gorman — who has elsewhere worked with the likes of Angie McMahon and Julia Jacklin.  

Returning is accompanied by an official music video, which was filmed by Joey Clough and follows Juice Webster as she collects seashells and traipses the shorelines of a hazy beach.

“Thanks for being here,” Juice Webster wrote to fans in an Instagram post. “I love this record and I can’t wait to share it with you.” 

Juice Webster first garnered attention as one half of the indie electronic duo Hemm, whose debut album Emerging with the Day arrived in 2017.

Since then, Webster’s solo efforts have seen her release the 2019 EP You Who Was Myself and its 2021 follow up More Than Reaction. 

As a solo act, Webster has performed at Brunswick Music Festival and Town Folk Festival, as well as serving as the support act for the likes of Ali Barter, Hachiku, Slowly Slowly and Mimi Gilbert.
