Whether she's performing a song from a wide range of jazz, blues, gospel, pop--or even her own songs--Judy Thomas delivers soulful music you can feel.
Singer-songwriter Keri Noble describes Judy as having a "...voice that is deep and easy--a smoky, bluesy, back porch sunset best experienced in a comfy chair with a smooth drink..."
Calley Bliss, Owner of Entertainment Jill, says:
"Judy's vocal phrasing and tenacious stye are an inspiration, and proof that musicality comes from those who commit to the magic of truly creating music"
Cities97 Live At the Lakes
July 19, 2018 @5 pm
Opened for A Great Big World at the Cities97 Live at the Lakes Summer Series with some great help from Gary Denbow II, who is an amazing jazz artist and composer in his own right. Here's one of the tunes we loved playing --even got the happy hour bar crowd to really listen :) Pretty cool.... here's my take on John Prine's Angel From Montgomery.

One of my favorite Bill Withers tunes!
With some help from the band (Kev Mills, Gary Denbow II), as well as Emilia Zellmer and Jenn Swanson, here's the first song I wrote.
Love You Still
Here's another tune I wrote to process that whole thing of having hard conversations with people you love.

Me and My Drum
Me and My Drum. My version of the Little Drummer Boy. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed performing it at the Keri Noble Voice Lessons Holiday Jamboree!
Come Rain or Shine
Beautiful guitar and sax provided by Kev Mills and Gary Denbow II. Love this old standard. Dedicated it to my Aunt Linda who has survived cancer and so many other things: role model.
1 Fine Thing
Our take on Harry Connick Jr's smooth One Fine Thing. That heartbeat you hear at the end? That's what happens when I turn my Gibson into a drum :)
Just the Way You Are
Fun moment at the last show--Gary got the whole crowd going with our cover of Bruno Mars' hit Just The Way You Are. The man's got pipes, right?
