Judy Paster is a 4-time nominated GMA (Gospel Music Association) Award winning songwriter who has her own brand of lovely, earthy, edgy Country-Folk music. With a timeless, refreshing honesty, this petite powerhouse delivers a distinctly pure sound, reminiscent of Patty Loveless, yet with a power packed style that’s all her own.
A Philadelphia native, Judy launched her recording career with media-based label A.I.R. and debuted her first self-titled EP. Since the album release, Judy has worked with many talented producers and writers. She has found an artistic home with current producer Bill McDermott of Omni Sound Studios on the iconic Music Row in Nashville. She is a committed songwriter and has begun writing with some of the biggest hit writers in Nashville, as well as writing for film and tv. She continues to live up to her Billboard Magazine review as an artist truly "...on the rise", with 4 GMA Canadian Covenant Award nominations for songs she co-wrote, winning the 2015 GMA Award for Jazz Blues Song of the Year. ("Awaken My Love", by Paster, Spicer, & DiLuigi)
During a recent trip to Haiti, Judy had the opportunity to share music at an orphanage. While there, she was able to experience the children singing songs in their native language, Creole (Haitian French), and feeling inspired, she recorded some of these moments. Upon her return to Nashville, she penned “While You Lay Sleeping” with Bill DiLuigi, which captures the essence of the great need in Haiti. In production, they were able to give these children a voice, by including some of these recordings on the track. It can be heard on RUBIES, ROCKS, & STONES, produced by music legends, the Gaithers. This experience truly captures Judy’s essence as an artist and a person, firmly living her motto: “Do what you love, love what you do, and serve somebody!”
Judy has performed at the Bluebird Cafe, 3rd & Lindsley, & the Listening Room in Nashville, to name just a few of the best. You can also find her playing at the Nashville Rescue Mission, where she sings to those who have found themselves homeless and bound to addiction, and are now working toward recovery. Judy has also appeared on television on Today in Nashville, Nite Line and Atlanta Live.
Don’t miss the chance to catch her live in Nashville, Philly, or a city near you!
