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!

Three Time GMA Award Nominee Thrilled About New Americana Project
"Rubie, Rocks & Stones" album by Judy Paster
"This new Americana album ‘Rubies, Rocks & Stones’ is a multi-faceted gem"
NASHVILLE, TN (PRWEB) JULY 17, 2017
Judy Paster, a three time GMA (Gospel Music Association) nominee and winner of the 2015 Jazz/Blues Song of the Year announced today she will be releasing a new Americana EP “Rubies, Rocks & Stones” produced by the Southern Gospel Legends the Gaithers on Friday, July 28th via iTunes. Paster will pre-release a new single from the EP, “Wings of Gold” a week prior on July 21st.
It is rare for a singer-songwriter to relocate to Nashville and record an Americana project with Southern Gospel legends, the Gaithers. Judy Paster, a Philadelphia transplant, is thrilled to have such a unique opportunity.
“This new Americana album ‘Rubies, Rocks & Stones’ is a multi-faceted gem,” says Judy Paster. “From the themes of finding the freedom to follow your dreams in ‘Wings of Gold’ to the message of help for Haitian orphans in ‘While You Lay Sleeping’ I am proud to be a part of this body of work. Recording with award-winning Gaither Music Producers Will Jennings and Michael Sykes was an unforgettable experience.”
Judy Paster performs a charismatic blend of Americana and Nashville Folk. Her unique power packed style offers an authentic and pure sound, reminiscent of popular 70's folk singers. “Rubies, Rocks & Stones” is Paster’s third album. After releasing her first album, Billboard Magazine referred to Paster as an artist truly "on the rise." Continuing to live up to that review, this latest album was co-written with Nashville songwriter Bill Diluigi, with whom Paster previously won the 2015 GMA Award for Jazz/Blues Song of the Year for “Awaken My Love.”
Paster recently traveled to Haiti to perform at an orphanage and recorded the Haitian children singing in their native Creole language and included them in her song “While You Lay Sleeping.”
“Rubies, Rocks & Stones” is an original EP collection of songs written by Judy Paster and Bill Diluigi.
