The Juliet Letters is a song cycle based on the many different forms of letter we all send and receive - advertising, dear John, solicitor's, letters home from a war, etc. The style is highly individual having been written in colaboration between Elvis Costello and the Brodsky Quartet - a recipe for 'crossover' of the highest artistic content. This album was released at a particularly turbulent time in my life and has resonances in many of its songs, and any audience you play it for will be certain to find their own. I urge you to listen to, and if you can, to play this music.
