Judy Spellman

A New Orleans native born into a family of music with a BA and MA in the visual arts from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn NY and Tulane University's Newcomb School of Art. Judy has recently returned from Europe in her first international collaboration, returning this April and later in the fall of 2012 to tour several European countries with German based band, "Phavior Adelic". Judy's father the legendary NO R&B; singer Mr. Benny "Lipsticktraces" Spellman made a significant contribution to New Orleans music and of course developed a hugh international following due to his work with the likes of Paul Mccartney, Allen Toussaint, Earl King and many others that re-recoreded his original songs. Judys mom has also been a gospel pianist/vocalist for greater than 69 years in New Orleans and still going strong. Judys vibrant personality and Ecclectic musical sound allows her the flexibilty to move fluidly across many genres of music styles, from Jazz to Blues, and standards to Gospel, which of course is where she started and still intimately involved with her church choir. Judy has performed over the years at multiple Jazz Festivals in New Orleans, and is now sought after not only by local establihments, but regionally as well as cities across the US and Europe!
