Judith Owen has boldly followed her muse, releasing recordings on Courgette Records that have captivated fans, fellow artists and the most discerning critics. Equal parts musicality, personality and wit, Judith's music combines pop, rock, jazz, classical, R&B and theatrical influences.
Variety effusively described her as 'a charmer and a seducer, a rocker and a jazz chanteuse'. The Los Angeles Times has portrayed her as 'a drier, hipper Norah Jones who is whip smart, soulfully cool and deeply introspective'. And from a recent Boston Globe Arts cover story: 'Owen's voice is gorgeous. It's a phenomenally forthright instrument that whispers when necessary and wails when the moment calls for candor.'
Judith is best known to UK audiences as the exquisite voice of Richard Thompson's 1000 Years of Popular Music and Cabaret of Souls. Jamie Cullum calls her 'a female Randy Newman' and The New York Times states that she has 'the kind of wailing folk-jazz voice that slices away surfaces to touch the vulnerable emotional nerve endings and leave you quivering'.
Her live performances brim with humour and theatrics, distinguishing her from other female singer/songwriters. With worldly wisdom beyond her years, Judith turns suffering into divine lyrical melodies, as she draws on her life-long battle with depression and lays this as the foundation of her latest releases Some Kind of Comfort and The Beautiful Damage Collection which feature songs from Ruby Wax Losing It.
