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.

THE RISING OF US ALL is 18 songs peace & justice, work & women, struggle and celebration
follows Judy's cd, ANALOG GIRL IN A DIGITAL WORLD blues rooted original songs, rich smokey vocals
and evocative, soulful, often political lyrics

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

Judy'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-nine 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. Pete Seeger said, "Music can't change the world only people can do that; but sometimes music can change people..."

Joyce Brown

The Rising Of Us All
Strong, powerful, dynamic voice and presentation. A wonderful album from a wonderful human being.

Heather Abraham

Powerful, true-to-self lyrics
Using her personal life experience as a tool, this CD hits at the heart of self-expression and self-realization through political organizing. The words of I'm Gonna Be an Engineer made a lasting impression on me, as did the opening words of It's Time to Organize, as the artist explains that her grandmother taught her smile politely and hide her eyes ... because that was what was expected of her, but times have changed and now it's okay for women, for people, to fight back, and organize.

Sarah Macy


Judy Gorman sings make-change music in a voice that matches the
message: rich, clear, and powerful. Not to be missed is this CD's surprise treat: Judy's absolutely stunning a capella. Can this gal sing!

Emily Kimball

Powerful words of change, with a voice and soul to match!
Judy has soul in her voice and lyrics to keep you inspired and let you know that there are still people out there challenging traditional corperate America. She's got power!

Ed Vandergrift

This gal can really sing,
I'd love to see her in a live performance! She has put a lot of energy in this CD.
