Jude Johnstone has gone a step further toward intimacy on her new and 8th album for independent label BoJak Records. She and engineer and producer Michael Hanson recorded the album with no isolation, no frills, in her house in East Nashville, TN. The result is a spare and achingly honest set of 10 songs aptly titled "Living Room". Jude has received numerous awards with her profound, raw and emotional songs over a stellar career spanning 40 years.
A testament to her talents are the artists who have covered her songs including Mary Black, Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, Bette Midler, Stevie Nicks, Bonnie Raitt and Trisha Yearwood. With “Living Room”, Jude delivers songs consistent with her reputation of cultivating artistic truth. Uniquely for Jude, several of her songs are from a male perspective with vocals provided by artists Ben Glover, Brandon Jesse, Hunter Nelson and Tim Hockenberry. This collection continues the legacy of Jude Johnstone as being one of her generation’s finest songwriters.
