Juliet Nelson

Juliet Nelson is one of Montréal’s most talented reggae singers. A native of Mandeville, in central Jamaica, and now living in Montréal, Juliet perfected her vocal talents in church choirs. At age 16, she moved toward reggae.

Since then, she has thrilled Canadian audiences, collaborating with the New Horizons Band, Jah Cuttah and the Determination Band. She has also toured with Juno Award-winner Lorraine Klaasen as a backup singer.

After many world tours with Grammy Award-winner Buju Banton and the sensational Wayne Wonder, Juliet joined another award-winning band, Worl-A-Girl. She was a Penthouse Recording solo artist with popular singles including Turn Down the Lights, Lead You, Show and Tell and Love Me or Leave Me to her credit.

Juliet has lent her gentle voice to many recorded works and live performances by Vernon Maytone as well as to various local and international reggae artists. Her song I Try is on the Montréal production of the compilation album Riddim Vibez, released in May 2011.

Juliet’s releases between 2012 and 2021 include separate tracks on the Subsonik label. Love, Come Back Home, Where is the Love, It’s My Life and All This Love are found on various compilation albums for the Indie Rootz label.
