About Judy (Biog):
Celtic sounds: touching the heart, engaging the mind, reaching the soul...
"Judy''s music is like a beautiful, understated flower nestling in the shade of a glen, just waiting for you to stop, and look, and find strength and hope in its beauty...."
Judy has struggled with serious illness and restricting disability since she was fifteen. Trained as a musician and sound engineer, she is a multi-instrumentalist, playing amongst other things: violin, Celtic whistles, keyboards, concertina, melodeon, acoustic guitar, bass, Celtic harp, vocals and percussion. Living in South Gloucestershire - a stone''s throw from the Severn River and rolling Welsh hills - her songs and instrumentals often speak of the natural world, a subject that has inspired Celtic artists down the centuries.
Judy''s music has seen significant international success - frequently featuring in the top ten playlist of Celtic Christian Tunes, reviewed in Cross Rhythms magazine, and played regularly on all the major Celtic Music Radio stations online. Her tracks are popular downloads from iTunes and sell internationally through distribution companies in the USA and UK. Judy has performed at folk festivals in Germany and France, and has played at Easter People 2000, as well as gigging nationally with a variety of bands in a variety of genres. Highlights include two years playing keyboards with Bristol based hip-hop band Tribeca and scoring the film show reel "Tribe of One" for Petit Mort Film company. However, the heart and soul of Judy''s own music remains firmly rooted in Celtic Folk - her blend of soft vocals, electric sounds and acoustic folk instruments is truly beautiful.
Although her illness and disability make regular live work difficult, Judy has extensive experience as a recording musician and songwriter. Writing, playing and recording her own and other people''s material, she delights in blending traditional and innovative sounds. Judy''s songs are "contemplative, reflective, and deep" (Celtic Christian Tunes)
"Soothing music with strong melodies and a Celtic flavour... a fresh artist who has plenty to say, and the musical chops to say it" (Cross Rhythms Magazine)
