Walk Steady Update - June 26, 2018

Hi Dear Ones,

Just a quick update to let you know that I saw the first picture of the painting my dear friend Emily Coleman is creating for the album.  Emily took a picture of her painting with her phone and I have to tell you that I was immediately sobbing!  Guess she hit it out of the park.  (Actually, there's a tree on it, so maybe she hit it IN the park).

 

Thanks for your patience as I work through this slow and steady process.  We're close to having a copy for all of the Kickstarter folks and YOU as well.  

Hope you're keeping your chins up and that the flowers are blooming near you,

Judith

New Album - March 30, 2018

It's getting tweaked at Peerless Mastering by Maria Rice.  She has worked on my last few albums and I couldn't be happier with what I've been hearing.

 

This album is taking so long to come out, but the jasmine is in the air here in California and I am perfectly okay with that.  Deep breaths and lots of sun.

 

Love and updates coming soon - Judith

It's Judith - Remember Me??! - October 6, 2017

"If you only had ONE show left, what songs would you play?"

I'd play the nine songs on my new album, not yet released.

It's called Walk Steady.  

(For the "skimmers" out there, you can click HERE for all kinds of information on pre-orders, rewards and the inspiration behind the making of this special project.)

During the making of my last solo album God Bless the Brooders, my dad, mom and sister died. I’ve been working through it. But you know, grief has done strange things to my thoughts.  I've been living with new stage fright, restlessness, and the constant feeling that everything could end at any moment. It has made me question my lifelong devotion to music.

That album was released in 2012. Although I’ve been working and happily making music since then, I haven’t quite had the heart or mindset to release any solo material. 

But in the past few years, I’ve helped others write their own songs – especially youth. Through those songwriting experiences, I’ve changed. I hope I've grown - I've certainly tried! I think it's time to have faith in the value of my work and I hope you'll join me.  

This album is about inner freedom and the slow strangulation of unhappy relationships.

It is about sexuality, abuse, and self-possession.

It is about confusion, corruption and being done with bullshit.

It is about the reality and permanence of death.

There is a song for suckers. (I absolutely loathe being a sucker - don't you?!)

There is a song about the deep knowing and acceptance of an entire being, my wife, Frances.

And there is a reminder that love is the truth…when in doubt, we can always confidently follow love.

This new album is mostly made. But to be released, it needs final funding, which is outlined on Kickstarter.  I need your help to pay Daniel Marcus (co-producer, husband, teacher, musician and father of two) fairly. I need your help to pay someone to help me navigate channels for the album other than live shows. 

I believe there is a place for all art. I have poured my 21 years of songwriting experience and all its angles into this album. Thank you for believing in me and my work.  

Love and peace to each and every one of you,

Judith
