Juliet Ariel – Summer Luv – Acoustic Version (Spotify)

“In a bunch of many acoustic piano vocal songs tracks we receive, is hard to define what makes one to stand out sometimes. But with tracks as this of Juliet Ariel, it becomes more clear. The right gently piano performance with dynamics that hit in well sync with vocal changes, the quality of production and the beautiful voice and vocal performance of the songwriter as Juliet wins you quick. You understand the good music in first seconds of listens, and this is what we felt here with first piano notes and when vocals hit in, first impression usually not fails for such productions!”


Australia-based French-African singer-songwriter Juliet Ariel released the acoustic version of her latest single “Summer Luv” . It’s an emotional take on Summer Luv, stripped down to just piano and vocals.

The original version was released on July 3rd and added into 10+ worldwide playlists on Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music, Soundcloud, Napster, Youtube Music and Amazon Music.

“Summer Luv” is available through AWAL and is taken from her upcoming EP, “Endless Summer”, which is expected later this year.

Announcing the new single the singer says:

“I wanted to make a song that could bring back summer all year long, to endlessly remind me of the good times and capture the nostalgia of a summer romance, a feeling that everyone must have experienced at least once in their life. I took inspiration from my afro-latin roots for some of the rhythms, but overall it's a dance song with simple lyrics that I feel anyone could easily relate and have fun listening to.”

Born in the D.R Congo, Juliet is a French singer, songwriter & producer. She of African and Portuguese descent and speaks fluently in French and English.

Juliet made an impactful introduction with her self- produced single “Take Me With You” which reached 10M+ views collectively on Youtube, 1.7M+ streams on Spotify and 1.3M+ streams on Soundcloud which lead to her catching the attention of labels and tastemakers from around the world including, Nora En Pure, Black Coffee and Simon Field and publications such as Dancing Astronaut and KALTBLUT to name a few.

She was inspired by the art and fashion scene in Paris where she grew up. Originally studying to become a make-up artist, it was there where she experienced as a young teen the ultra-fashionable nightclub scene and had her first taste of French- electronic artists like Justice and Daft Punk who still inspire her today.
