Shatter

by Jude Johnstone

Johnstone's most diverse collection so far, spanning several musical genres, delving honestly, and even eerily at times. (Tom Waits, Randy Newman...) into a world of experiences that have led her characters down a darkened path only to emerge from it.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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.” “Touchdown Jesus” was inspired when she visited Dr. John in New Orleans. When explaining directions to his home Dr. John told Jude, “When you get to the statue of Touchdown Jesus take a left.” Johnstone could not pass up that imagery and wrote “Touchdown Jesus,” which simmers with a sultry New Orleans attitude. “The Underground Man,” is reminiscent of a Tom Waits’ tune with evocative lyrics and phrasing.
Title track “Shatter” is a gospel prayer, of sorts, which makes use of a New Orleans style brass ensemble and the heartfelt vocals of Johnstone, and the incomparable Maxayn Lewis. It is powerful, poignant and thought provoking and a true indicator of the depth of wisdom and creativity from which Jude works.

Shatter is Johnstone’s most diverse collection so far, spanning several musical genres, delving honestly, and even eerily at times (i.e. Tom Waits, Randy Newman...) into a world of experiences that have led her characters down a darkened path only to emerge from it, ultimately.
