If you want to collaborate with Juliana it helps if your name is Ryan.
Her involvement with that Cardinals fella has been well documented.
This week another Ryan - American singer / songwriter Ryan Star has revealed that Juliana performs backing vocals on his forthcoming album 11:59.
UPDATE: August 3, 2010
The album has now been released and Juliana is not on it.
In an article carried by the Huffington Post, Star says:
“(Juliana) sang on my record. It turned out she was a fan, you know, it goes years back. I saw her (when I / she) was younger, gave her one of my demos, and it turns out she knew who I was and was excited to sing.”
In CWG magazine he says Juliana was his favourite person to collaborate with, describing her as:
“the greatest fucking girl artist in the world.”
It looks like the recording may date back at least a couple of years as the release of 11:59 has been delayed several times and there is currently no firm date. Perhaps Ryan should take note of his label’s history of releasing of songs involving Juliana. Ryan Star is signed to Atlantic Records.

And to complete the Ryan theme, a reminder that as reported last year, Juliana performs a duet with Boston singer / songwriter Ryan Schmidt on the track Night The Bells Rang on his new album Black Sheep, Run. The album is due for release on June 1, 2010 November 2, 2010. Listen to the track here:
