What advice would you give other independent artists who hope to be in your position one day?
JR: Oh, that’s a really good question. Honestly, that speaks a lot to what I’ve done because I’ve been asked this—I’m a hustler, I will take any opportunity. I’m the kind of person, I don’t care if there’s one person in the audience or 1,000 people, I care about whoever is caring about it.
WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO OUTFIT?
I do like a lot of black, I’ll admit it. I probably wear too much black. I love to wear long draping kimonos, dusters, a pair of nice boots, and a velvet headband made by I’m With The Band or a black hat. I like a bright statement lip. Currently, I’m using a Kat Von D lipstick in metallic red—it’s the coolest color—and mixing it with a dark berry red. It stays on forever.
Singer Juliet Roberts is a fan of the Golden State Warriors, but her first love is music. So, in her song ‘Finally Mine’ — which is featured on the NBA’s commercials for the 2018 Finals (which may or may not include her favorite team), she says she’s singing about her first love: music.
