Reviews, Interviews and Press Quotes:
“Turning emotional pain into art is a tricky business. I sometimes wonder if the end result is worth it. Jude Johnstone makes a good case that it does.”
—Rodney Crowell, A Woman’s Work
“Jude Johnstone’s ability to fashion the stuff of life-seasoned, grown up emotions into handsomely crafted, lyrically attractive song fare is as remarkable as it is reliable. The widely covered singer/songwriter (Emmylou Harris, Stevie Nicks, Johnny Cash, Bette Midler) delivers these skills by way of vocals equal part warm heart and incandescent soul. Strong tracks are everywhere, including “Never Leave Amsterdam”, “Turn Me Into Water” and “Little Boy Blue”. The wry, sly “People Holding Hands” should make Randy Newman grin. One of the year’s best.”
—Roots Music Review, Duane Verh, A Woman’s Work
“If Jude Johnstone is not yet a musical household name, she sure as hell should be.”
—Henry Carrigan, No Depression
“She’s patently a master at capturing the heart’s dark and desperate moments, just as she’s capable of encouraging belief in its resurrection.”
—Mike Davies, Roots and Branches/The Beat
“Johnstone is a songwriters’ songwriter.”
—JAM Magazine, Italy
