Judy Paster Releases Heartfelt Christmas Single, ‘Perfect Gift’
Judy Paster new song ‘Perfect Gift’ is here, and it is a heart-warming, Christmas melody. Judy’s soft vocals coupled with a memorable tune make for a holiday song that needs a space on your playlist. It is particularly needed this year, when time with our families in person is not guaranteed. Judy has served up the perfect recipe for musical Christmas joy!
Nashville-based, Pennsylvania-grown Americana artist Judy Paster spent the last year writing and recording her newest album, “LIKE STARDUST” with producer Bill McDermott of Omni Sound Studios, located on Music Row in Nashville. In recent years, she has been sharpening her skills and finding her way in the musical cosmos by playing alongside hit songwriters and musicians at infamous Nashville venues such as 3rd and Lindsley, The Bluebird Cafe and The Listening Room. Along her journey, Judy has also played at coffeehouses, breweries, wine bars, juice bars, little and big stages – from New Jersey to Arizona and everywhere in between, but never has her artistry and heart been captured and made known the way it is today.
Paster comes from a place of pouring her heart, faith, & pain into songs, beginning when she was just eight years old. Now, she weaves relatable tales of loves lost, dreams dreamed, and hope fulfilled with stunning country and rock sensibilities backing the melodies. Her experiences as a teenager traumatized by drugs and abuse, flinging the pain into a gypsy lifestyle of van living and moving from place to place, as well as her father’s death from Alzheimers—which she sings about on the heartwarming track “With A Kiss”—have all shaped the person and artist she is today. Not devoid of suffering, yet ever hopeful & seeking a better life, Judy has emerged with an undeniable strength that expresses itself through a pure, clear sound. She is a classic singer-songwriter, whose voice and songs transcend genres, generations, and even the galaxies.
Upon reviewing the record, Hillbilly Hippie Music Review said Judy possesses “a clever hand on the pen and at times, an enchanting lilt to her voice that draws the ear into the stories she’s weaving.” She incorporates a fresh folk country sound into cleverly and beautifully written songs.
When writing and creating her music, Judy takes her cues from legendary singer songwriters, such as Linda Ronstadt, Bob Dylan, and Neil Young, with simple, yet powerful melodies that capture the heart and soul of the listener. Judy has collaborated with award winning songwriter Bill DiLuigi, who boasts hundreds of film and TV placements, as well as top Billboard-charted Country & Americana songs; Bill Cuomo (Oh Sherrie, Bette Davis Eyes), Kirsti Manna (Blake Shelton, Big & Rich) & many other great Nashville songwriters.
Judy Paster is an emerging star in her genre, and has captured the warmth that is typical of country music while infusing melodies that are unforgettable. The title ‘Perfect Gift’ is fitting as we feel that this song is a gift during these turbulent times over the holiday period. You can follow Judy on her journey through her Instagram.
