Jude is one of the most soulful, deep singer-songwriters I know.” - Bonnie Raitt Turning emotional pain into art is a tricky business. I sometimes wonder if the end result is worth it. Jude Johnstone makes a good case that it does.” - Rodney Crowell Jude Johnstone has had her share of unforgettable moments during her three-decade music career. Fresh out of high school, she found herself seated next to Clarence Clemons, the E Street Band’s sax player, on an airplane. Afterward, he was so taken with the demo she sent that he invited her to recording sessions for The River and got her hooked up with Bruce Springsteen producer Chuck Plotkin in L.A. Then there were the singular songwriters—T Bone Burnett and Leonard Cohen, to name two—who recognized in her a kindred spirit and asked her to sing on their albums, and the legendary Motown bassist James Jamerson who’d show up early at her weekly gigs just because he enjoyed helping her decide which songs to put on the set list. Once, she even received an out-of-the-blue invitation to pen lyrics to music composed by Bob Dylan, who’s not only the archetypal singer-songwriter of the modern era but a pretty darn infrequent co-writer. There’s a good reason why these sorts of informal encounters have opened so many doors for Johnstone along the way, and it’s not dumb luck. “It’s all because of the power of the songs,” she says. “When I met Clarence, I was 18 years old, so the songs were not quite as well-written. But there was something going on that he heard, and he just plucked me out of Bar Harbor, Maine and I never went back.” That’s no exaggeration. Ever since then, this child of a tiny, blueberry-picking New England town has made her home within shouting distance of Hollywood, and made use of her gift for emotional excavation combined with her love of sophisticated songcraft. She draws the listener in with the 11 new compositions on her sixth album, Shatter—released on her own BoJak Records—just as she’s drawn in some of the most discerning song interpreters of our time.
