Juliet Simms (born February 26, 1986) is a singer/songwriter. She is the vocalist, guitarist and songwriter for the band Automatic Loveletter.
Simms was raised by a family of musicians. Her grandfather, Frank Todaro, is a jazz pianist in Aspen, Colorado, an aunt played violin for Rod Stewart, Wayne Newton and Pavaroti. Brother Tommy Simms, of top Florida band Win Win Winter is a producer, singer, song writer and produced Juliet's first CD. Singing since she was four, writing since she was nine, Simms became a fixture of the local music cafes as a teenager. It was here where the first of 5 major labels who offered her deals, caught a live performance.
Her first 4 songs were produced by the Grammy nominated members of the death metal band Spineshank, but Juliet's melodic rock tunes "The View From Below", "Changing Skies", "Old Movie", and "I Notice" were not the right fit for that production team. Juliet asked the label for a different producer and they brought in studio master Richie Zito, a writer and producer for Elton John, the Motels and Heart, and he and Juliet re-recorded a handful of tracks that immediately garnered wide notice. "Someday" and "Make-up Smeared Eyes" captured the number one spots in three separate genres of the MySpace music charts, where Juliet became a Featured Artist. Her music was subsequently licensed to MTV’s The Real World and Road Rules. Her ballad, “Old Movie” was aired as a closing song on the 2006 season finale of The Real World.
Juliet competed on the second season of the NBC show The Voice (2012) on Team CeeLo and came in second overall.
