About Judy Small...

Judy Small is one of the most influential singer/songwriters to come out of Australia and an Australian folk music icon. After more than 30 years in the music business she is still going strong, although she sings less frequently since she went back to her second love, the law in 1997. Judy grew up in the small seaside town of Coffs Harbour in New South Wales, and was inspired  by the folk music boom of the 1960s. When she got her first guitar at the age of 14, it wasn't the Beatles or The Beach Boys she wanted to emulate: it was those big-voiced women like Joan Baez, Mary Travers of Peter Paul and Mary, and Judith Durham of The Seekers, who sang songs about real people and real issues.  Judy Small, the "grande dame" of Australian folk music is as passionate as ever about her music. Judy has released twelve albums, and has hundreds of songs and a song book to her credit. Her  music is now available on iTunes.
