Judith Owen is known for her musical variety and melding it into a great stylistic gumbo all her own. Her new CD release “Somebody’s Child”, is her 11th and the culmination of this mix. On the CD, she is again backed by the crème de la crème of LA session musicians, the renowned “Section” – bassist Leland Sklar, guitarist Waddy Wachtel and drummer Russ Kunkel. Voice and piano are front and centre and the songs are small vignettes of life. “It's classical. It's pop. There's jazz. There's rhythm and blues. Then there's rock thrown in there too,” Judith explains. Recording with Kunkel, Sklar and Wachtel, studio stalwarts behind Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, Laura Nyro among others, and touring with them, “Served as this incredible calling card for me. I waited a long time to be able to work with some of my musical idols. I’m a late bloomer,” she admits. Linda Ronstadt was, “Blown away by her musicianship”. Jamie Cullum called her, “Sassy and intelligent. Jackson Browne said, “Judith is a master class on how a show should be done”.
