Judith Owen has boldly followed her muse, independently releasing musical recordings that have captivated fans, fellow artists and the most discerning critics. She has been featured by NBC’s Today Show and NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday and lauded by The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, USA Today, The Washington Post and many others. Equal parts musicality, personality and wit, Owen’s music combines pop, rock, jazz, classical, R&B and theatrical influences. Her 2010 release The Beautiful Damage Collection features 16 meticulously crafted songs of past and present. She has collaborated with many people including her partner Harry Shearer. Owen has battled with depression and has spoken openly about this. A conversation with friend and fellow sufferer-UK comedienne Ruby Wax, resulted in the idea for Ruby Wax – Losing It, a poignant, funny yet devastatingly honest two woman show tracing the emotional descent of Wax, through music and monologues.
