She's played quite a few high-energy freaks for Hollywood, but none of her silver screen characters can prepare audiences for the over the top ferociousness Juliette Lewis unleashes when she fronts her band, Juliette and the Licks. Lewis' first public flirtations with rock & roll can be traced back to 1994 when she appeared in the video for Melissa Etheridge's "Come to My Window." A year later she was singing PJ Harvey's "Hardly Wait" in the film Strange Days, but musical aspirations would only be hinted at for the next eight years. Film work took up Lewis' time until she took a break from it in 2003. That year she appeared in the video for H.I.M.'s "Buried Alive by Love" and rounded up her four-piece band, the Licks.
