ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
" The truth is not the facts,
the world is not the maps,
And everyday the concrete cracks
and the new grass unfurls
Like an analog girl in a digital world."
- Judy Gorman

Judy performs in clubs, festivals, and universities throughout the USA and Europe.

She has just released THE RISING OF US ALL - 18 songs peace & justice, work & women, struggle and celebration.

This follows her cd, ANALOG GIRL IN A DIGITAL WORLD.

Additionally, she lectures on the MULTICULTURAL HISTORY OF WOMEN AND MUSIC / FINDING OUR OWN VOICE - ALL OF US.

"Real music in a sea of mediocrity." -
Michael Kleff, GERMAN PUBLIC RADIO

"Her rich throaty vocals are as affecting as her thoughtful,
often political lyrics." MS.MAGAZINE

"Shoots the arrow straight to the heart...a wonderful
singer and musician." PETE SEEGER

She's performed on programs with Ani DiFranco, the Indigo Girls, Moby, Richie Havens, Sweet Honey in the Rock, Pete Seeger, Suzanne Vega, Odetta, James Earl Jones, Laura Nyro, Whoopi Goldberg, Susan Sarandon and Maya Angelou.

Judy has performed in over ten countries and forty-eight of these United States at clubs, universities, festivals, and peace and justice events here and abroad.

Judy Gorman's songs get their wings from her imagination and their roots from the folk, blues, jazz and gospel music she's been surrounded by all her life.
Her earliest memories are of hearing the music of Billie Holiday, Woody Guthrie, Paul Robeson and Leadbelly.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Singing with a dark rich voice Judy Gorman brought the idea of international solidarity within reach. No small feat." THE BOSTON GLOBE

"A pure celebration of music!"
COLLEGE BROADCASTER MAGAZINE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Born and educated in NYC, Judy earned a BA in literature and a Master's degree in art history. Before touring full
time as a musician, she taught English in Chinatown, assisted in oral surgery, worked at the Guggenheim Museum and Metropolitan Museum of Art, did construction work, community organizing and produced radio programs for Pacifica Radio's WBAI, 99.5 FM in NYC
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Judy's lecture on the MULTICULTURAL HISTORY OF WOMEN & MUSIC / FINDING OUR OWN VOICE - ALL OF US shares the little known, primary role that women the world over have played in the creation of music from pre-biblical to contemporary times.

Females have historically endured the burden of a peculiar dichotomy as "Eve" or "Mary" in popular music. "Eve" is interesting, powerful, and sexual but characterized as evil and predatory. "Mary" is seen as sweet and nurturing, but passive and boring. To reclaim the lost and hidden history of women's music of every culture enriches all of us and
helps each of us to find our own voice in every sense of the word.
In music, as in all fields, sexism is toxic to men as well
as women. Sexism, racism, and all forms of oppression reinforce each other and use overlapping stereotypes. Any success in confronting one kind of oppression can help overcome others.
To disempower any group it is essential to control and manipulate their procreativity and creativity. So often, we live "lives of quiet desperation". Pete Seeger said,
"Music can't change the world only people can do that.
But sometimes music can change people..." It changed me.

What will we hear and sing and say as we find our own,true
voice?

I know what I'm talking 'bout
I've been loving these tracks since Judy brought a CD to me......played Analog Girl songs in Brooklyn's best health food store, Perelandra, for a long time. My personal favorite is Superman....but they're all songs that move your soul. Now I'm in the Carolina mountains & introduce her music to EVERYONE. CHECK IT OUT!!!

John Bostrom

judy's best
Judy is an unusually powerful and diverse singer, and she's had her share of problems finding musicians who can keep up with her without getting in her way. This CD, her best yet, resolves that issue. Her voice has never sounded so relaxed and confident. Deeper, more complex shadings are revealed.

Analog Girl in a Digital World
I loved the ideas in this CD. For me it was both nostalgic and absolutely up to the minute. 'One World' is a classic song that should outlast us.

Chessy Sheldon

I've been playing this CD every day!
Judy Gorman is a refreshingly honest & original artist.
I've been playing this CD every day! She writes brainy, soulful lyrics somewhat like Ani DiFranco or Joni Mitchell & she sings in a powerful voice that reminds me of both Bonnie Raitt & Dinah Washington.

Greetings from New Mexico
I was in Grants when you did a show in late 06 and wanted to tell you that i find your music so amazing! I talked to you about my daughter, who also sings. She has a show this afternoon at a coffee shop here in Las Cruces and I'm so happy to be able to just see her perform! Thanks for your wonderful music!

Sherry


I love this CD. I think it is wonderful to write about the conditions of the world. You took what I was thinking and wrote beautiful songs about it.

Charlie Davis
