Groovy Judy puts a new face on the late 60’s, early 70’s sound that made the Bay Area what it is. From the songwriting influences of Sly and The Family Stone, Jimi Hendrix, to touches of the melodic Beatles sound, San Francisco’s own brings forth her dominating style with the energy of some of today’s most known artists. Groovy Judy focuses on making people smile and raising vibrations by delivering her own blend of funk/rock. Her stellar guitar playing, original lyrics, colorful dress, and upbeat personality, speak to all ages.
Her second CD “Life,” is about commonplace life experiences such as love, relationships and being happy. The title track, "Be Who You've Got to Be," sparks an inspirational vibe of being true to yourself, "Your Life" encourages enjoying life to the fullest, and "Get Along" is Judy's peace anthem about living together harmony. It also contains Judy’s signature psychedelic rock song, “Jimi’s Sister,” her tongue-in-cheek tribute to her guitar mentor, Jimi Hendrix, as well as the haunting instrumental, “Sunrise,” inspired by Carlos Santana.
Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Groovy Judy picked up is committed to giving back. She teaches guitar to up and coming musicians and donates performances to non-profit organizations, such as Amnesty International, The Leukemia Society, Bread and Roses, Guitars Not Guns and The American Red Cross.
A featured artist at She Rocks San Francisco Music Festival 2005, a finalist at the Emergenza Music Festival 2006, and a featured artist at the 2007 40th Anniversary of the Summer of Love Festival in Monterey, Groovy Judy is an artist who loves inspiring people to be the best they can be, love one another and spread peace and love through the universal language of music. She prefers to look on the lighter side of life and put out positive vibrations that make people smile, laugh, feel happy and enjoy life.
