HSM: My sister & I are major fans of Amy Winehouse. What was it like growing up with her?

JA: We've been best friends since we were 4 years old. [Pauses]Don’t really know what to say. I love her very much. She’s my sister and an amazing human being. it pains me that the rest of the world only got to get a small glimpse of the amazing person she really is.

HSM: Are you working on any new projects?

JA: I’m getting ready to release my debut album, Bittersweet in August. I can’t wait for this it's my first baby. I got my life in this album so it's a big therapy session for me! Also, I have my live music night at JJ’s SoulShack where I'll be performing in London's Jazz Café Camden when I get back from SXSW... then its back to the States and summer festival time!

HSM: What would you like people to know about the Juliette Ashby brand & what's to come?

JA: I love music and I put my whole life into my songs... I hope you guys love the music as much as I do and I'm so grateful to have your support on this crazy roller coaster. I hope my music can make you laugh, cry, get angry, get sad, get happy and not forgetting to make you wanna wine your hips!
