Lilith Czar arrives with the force of otherworldly thunder, surging in a visceral rebirth from an untimely grave of abandonment and sacrifice. Her voice is the sound of unearthly determination, summoned with confessional vulnerability and unapologetic authenticity. The girl who was Juliet Simms – her discouraged and rejected dreams, her confined and controlled identity – is no more. In her place stands Lilith Czar, a new vessel forged in unbridled will and unashamed desire.

His first album, “Created from dirt and dust”, is an evocative invitation into his bold new world. It’s aggressive music with warm accessibility, huge hooks with driving hard rock. The larger-than-life new icon channels the fierce combativeness of seductive wizardry from Fiona Apple and Stevie Nicks. Lilith Czar is armed with sonic power, theatricality and confidence. It’s a sound where the pulse of Nine Inch Nails, the songcraft of Halestorm and the libertine spirit of David Bowie converge, all in the service of ritual pain for a more just and equitable world.
