Judith Owen takes to The Forge stage to celebrate the release of her new album ‘Somebody's Child’, a follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2014 album "Ebb & Flow". Judith has been overwhelmingly praised wherever timeless music, live performance and song writing is appreciated. Judith will be accompanied by bassist Leland Sklar, Percussionist Pedro Segundo and Gabriella Swallow on cello.

Pianist-singer-songwriter Judith Owen is known for her love of musical variety and melding it into a great stylistic gumbo all her own. New album ‘Somebody’s Child’ is the culmination of this mix: voice and piano front and centre, songs that are vignettes of life crafted from the perspective that we ARE all “somebody’s child” - parental as well as planetary.

For the recording of ‘Somebody’s Child’ Judith recruited the same crème de la crème of Los Angeles session musicians who appeared on 2014’s critically-acclaimed ‘Ebb & Flow’ - bassist Leland Sklar, guitarist Waddy Wachtel and drummer Russell Kunkel - and incorporated them with her British-based musicians - Pedro Segundo on percussion and Gabriella Swallow on cello - to create a fresh new dynamic. Partner Harry Shearer (Spinal Tap, the Simpsons) also joins the cast playing upright bass on ‘That's Why I Love My Baby’.

Judith’s 2014 album ‘Ebb & Flow’ was when many discovered her highly seductive sound. Hailed as one of the releases of the year by The Independent newspaper in the UK, the record received further praise from Le Figaro in France, La Repubblica in Italy, Rolling Stone in Germany and the Wall Street Journal in the US. It also enjoyed sterling support at British radio, particularly from Jamie Cullum, Bob Harris and the late Sir Terry Wogan, stalwarts and tastemakers of the BBC Radio 2 network. All three hosted sessions featuring the Welsh-born songstress and demonstrated her commercial potential and wide-ranging appeal. In addition, ‘Ebb and Flow’ earned passionate support from Irish RTE Radio 1, Spanish RTNE Radio 3, German ARD Network, and Nordic National Radio and led to several key radio and television appearances on both sides of the Atlantic.

Somebody’s Child is released on May 6th on Twanky Records via Absolute Label Services.

This gig ranks as one of the best I've been to in a very long time. Judith Owen is an outstanding singer/songwriter and a superb performer and her band are legends. She made me laugh she made me cry. What more do you want? Visited The Forge on 2016-11-22
