Singer/songwriter Judith Owen joins host Robin Milling the day following her album showcase, “Somebody's Child” at the Iridium in New York. This Welsh-born entertainer is a beautiful songstress who weaves personal life lessons and stories throughout each song with a dab of her cheeky sense of humor thrown in for good measure which propel you not only to fall in love with her music, but with her as well. “I told you I was a bottomless pit of need,” she jokes speaking about wanting the feedback from the audience.
Born into a musical family – her father was an opera singer at Covent Garden – where hanging out with Pavarotti backstage seemed common place. She became “obsessed with the piano and singing from an early age;” wanting to experience the same joy her father did when he sang. Unfortunately she inherited melancholy from her mother who suffered from depression. Judith reveals, “Dad's the reason why I can sing and my mother's the reason why I sing and that's absolutely the truth.”
After 10 albums Owen tells Robin she has finally reached a stage in her career where people are appreciating her authenticity and how she has reached a point in her life where she can say, “I've been getting well, I've been getting me sorted. I have never felt more comfortable in my own skin.” Never one for a false note musically or in conversation Judith talks about her journey in turning her life around with the help of her music, her mench of a husband This Is Spinal Tap writer/star Harry Shearer, and the unconditional love from her yellow lab, Doris Day. But that's another story!
Judith is currently on tour with Bryan Ferry.
