ABOUT THE SHOW
In her 50-plus years in music, JUDY COLLINS has always exhibited impeccable taste in songcraft.
On her landmark 1967 album, "Wildflowers," she curated a stunning collection featuring originals alongside songs by not-yet household names such as Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen, and adventurous selections by Jacques Brel and Francesco Landini.
Her discerning palette, and her literary gifts, have enabled her to evolve into a poetic, storyteller songwriter.
Now, in her SIXTH decade as a singer and songwriter, JUDY COLLINS is experiencing a profound level of growth and prolific creativity.
The cultural treasure’s 55th release, the Grammy-nominated "Spellbound," finds COLLINS enjoying an artistic renaissance.
The 13-song album is a special entry in her oeuvre. It marks the first time ever she wrote all the songs on one of her albums. It features 12 new recently-written modern folk songs, and a bonus track of her evergreen, “The Blizzard.”
"Spellbound" is an introspective and impressionistic album. It unfolds as if COLLINS curated a museum exhibit of her life, and welcomed us into a retrospective of her most formative moments, some big and public, and some intensely personal and intimate.
While JUDY COLLINS celebrates many passages in life with her lyrics, her vocals sound untouched by time.
JUDY's singing on "Spellbound" shines pristinely as she eases from warm low-register vocals to soaring high tones, as if no time has elapsed since her singing mesmerized a generation on "Wildflowers."
“That’s a combination of good fortune, extreme luck, and hard work and discipline,” JUDY COLLINS reveals. “I do a lot to protect and take care of my voice, and I practice every day—you have to or you lose it.”
In a life and a career brimming with milestone moments, "Spellbound" is a high watermark of artistry and personal evolution.
Though JUDY COLLINS has been writing for half a century, her latest album ushers in an era of unbridled creativity.
“I always knew I was going to be a late bloomer,” COLLINS says, cracking up with laughter.
