On her latest, ‘Quiet Girl,” Jude Johnstone summons heartbreak with both rootsy yearning and elegant restraint.
On her new LP, “Shatter”, Jude Johnstone examines heartbreak and loss with such tender resignation that I wept in acknowledgment of its artful simplicity. A lesson in melodic grace delivered by as fine a singer-songwriter as any I know.
Jude is one of my favorite singers and songwriters. Her fertility in regards to songwriting is truly awe-inspiring.
