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 Utrecht, The Netherlands, the 24 year old singer-songwriter is not afraid fuse musical genres, influenced by several pilgrimages across the southern United States. On her new 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.
’’This girl sang some songs that made my heart drum. If she was anywhere around me, I’d go see her ev’ry night.’’
