If blue-eyed songstress Judy Blank would tell you she grew up in some one-horse-town in Louisiana, you’d probably believe her. But nothing could be further from the truth. Hailing from The Netherlands, the 25-year-old singer-songwriter is not afraid fuse musical genres, influenced by several pilgrimages across the southern United States.
On her LP Morning Sun, a 70’s inspired coming-of-age confessional that she recorded with Chris Taylor (Rival Sons, Dylan LeBlanc, The Wood Brothers), she effortlessly mixes traditional folk and groovy americana. From the green-eyed soul of her hit single “Mary Jane” to the jagged-edged ballad of “Tangled Up in You”, she can hit all the notes. Even living legends praise her songwriting skills; her song ‘1995’ was called a favorite by none other than Sir Elton John. Last year, she officially debuted at SXSW in Austin, toured all over Europe with the South Carolina alt-country rockers from SUSTO and was the first Dutch artist to ever perform at Americanafest in Nashville.
Only a year after the release of ‘Morning Sun’, she released its little brother, ‘Morning After’, a diverse sounding rock ‘n roll EP reminding of the early days of Cage The Elephant. One thing is for sure: This young lady can’t sit still. And it’s probably for the better.Listen on Spotify Book tickets
