This album in rooted in Celtic Folk tradition. Judy uses Celtic whistles, fiddle & guitar to conjure the sights and sounds of the British countryside. Add to this an electronic dimension using keyboards, samples and electric guitars and you get an idea of the rich texture she creates. The lyrics point to hope, love and strength amidst the reality and struggles of life. This is a unique and uplifting blend. SHADES of LIGHT will not just help you relax and chill out, it will also give you new hope and inspiration to face whatever life throws at you.
How would you describe this album? - 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....
SHADES of LIGHT - REVIEW
We have a fresh new voice and talent in Celtic Christian music. Her name is Judy Cockwell, she''s from the UK and her CD is called "SHADES of LIGHT". Judy is multitalented in that she has written, produced and performed all vocals and instruments on her debut.
One of the things that makes "SHADES of LIGHT" a pleasure to listen to is that it''s what I call totally home grown. She performed, produced and burned this delightful CD from her home studio. Being home burned does not affect the sound of the music. The label may cause problems for front loading players, but shouldn''t deter one from adding it to their collection. As a musician myself, I find it inspiring to see the quality she was able to bring forth without a professional studio.
"SHADES of lIGHT" contains fourteen tracks with four being instrumental. The instrumental "By the River Sazava" has a feeling of being at a "Hebrew" Ceili - a nice blend of the two cultures. Another of the instrumentals, "One Day
Sometime", is a little reminiscent of Enya''s "Shepherd Moons".
For her first CD, she shows great promise. But what really stands out for me are the thoughtful lyrics - how they point to Christ and that He is always there for us. Judy has brought words and music that remind us that Jesus is never far from us. He knows our hearts, feels what we feel and is always there for you and me.
Judy - The BIOG!
Playing fiddle, keyboards, whistles, concertina, accordion & guitars has taken Judy to a variety of venues both nationally in the UK (Easter People conference 2000, venues in Bristol & London) and internationally (folk festivals in Germany & France). Songs from SHADES of LIGHT have been well received at several local events & music festivals.
Judy''s musical experience includes gigging with Bristol based hip-hop band "Tribeca", performing with various Folk Bands & playing solo Jazz . Although her lyrics inevitably draw on aspects of her experience living with serious illness, the songs and instrumental tracks on SHADES of LIGHT bring an uplifting blend of hope and reality.
Previous compositions from Judy include scoring the film show-reel "Tribe of One" for Petite Mort Film Productions (Bristol) and recording 2 albums of original songs with her previous band "Mustard Seeds".
