The band was first called Stars and Scars. They played both the main Bamboozle and Bamboozle Left in 2008 and played on the 2008 Vans Warped Tour. "Paramore is the female-fronted draw of the day here at Bamboozle Left, but Automatic Loveletter’s Juliet Simms more than held her own on the Nokia Ticket Rush stage. Clad in an obligatory black hoodie and strumming an acoustic guitar, she wailed her way through a frenetic half-hour set split by a solo acoustic ballad. Get this band on a main stage and she’ll be receiving automatic love letters by the truckload." LA Times. Simms has lended guest vocals on several songs for better known bands. Simms’ voice can be heard on records from LoveHateHero's "Theatre of Robots", Secondhand Serenade's "Your Call", All Time Low's "Remembering Sunday", and most recently Cartel's "Lose It".
