Johnstone, Jude, Shatter

Jude Johnstone is one of the most respected and acclaimed songwriters of her generation. Johnstone's lyrical depth and memorable melodies have attracted an impressive list of recording legends that have covered her songs including Johnny Cash, Stevie Nicks, Bette Midler, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, and Trisha Yearwood. Shatter returns Johnstone to her to the early roots of her music around the time "Big Man" Clarence Clemmons discovered her. Shatter brings her closer to the gospel, blues and reggae tracks found on her early demos when she first arrived in Los Angeles. Johnstone states "Shatter, is about reclaiming your power by giving it up and looking deep at your shortcomings while finding the courage to change. The old self shatters in order to find a better self." " A lesson in melodic grace delivered by as fine a singer-songwriter as any I know." -Rodney Crowell
