Judith thoroughly enjoys her life and music.
And she radiates that joy.
She has a wide catalogue, from material that is written by herself to jazz standards and pop songs. Never without giving pieces her own touch.
Right now she is touring with A Jazz Tribute to ABBA. With her band she jazzed up ABBA songs. She also showcases Songs of Wes, a tribute to jazz guitar legend Wes Montgomery. For this project Judith wrote lyrics on original Wes songs. Judith furthermore works on a new project called Carmina Latina: jazz songs (standards and new compositions) in the Latin language.
FROM CLASSICAL LANGUAGES TO THE ROYAL CONSERVATORY
Judith is music. Starting at a young age she participated in talent shows with her self-written songs. The piano at home is often played and used for private try outs and classical lessons. After graduating from studying the classics, Greek and Latin, Judith studied Jazz at the Royal Conservatory in the Hague. After completion Judith focusses more on writing her own material, but jazz remains her true love.
VOICE AND PERFORMANCE
Her clear and warm voice with a wide range is very flexible. People often compare her voice to the sound of the late Karen Carpenter.
On stage Judith is strong, showing vulnerability and a sense of humour. She takes you on a journey and above all clearly enjoys interacting with her band and the audience.
