Music Night at Bogies | JUDITH OWEN with Legendary Bassist Leland Sklar (Cover $25)

TUESDAY | November 20, 2018 | 7:30pm | Music Night at Bogies | JUDITH OWEN with Legendary Bassist Leland Sklar (Cover $25)


Judith Owen’s live performances, whether as a headliner or as the handpicked opening act for Bryan Ferry’s recent tours of Europe and North America, have
been wowing listeners and gaining fans like fellow artist Jackson Browne. Judith is a seasoned performing artist and co-founder of Twanky Records with
her husband, Harry Shearer. Riding high from the critical acclaim for her latest album, “redisCOVERed” released this past May, the
singer/songwriter/pianist and London born recording artist is back in the U.S. after touring the UK and much of Europe including Sweden, Norway, Germany,
Austria, France, Italy, the Netherlands, and more.

“RedisCOVERed" is a collection of carefully chosen cover tunes including Deep Purple’s "Smoke On The Water", Soundgarden’s "Black Hole Sun", Donna
Summer’s "Hot Stuff", Wild Cherry’s "Play That Funky Music", a few contemporary selections including Drake’s "Hotline Bling", Ed Sheeran’s
"Shape Of You", and a couple Joni Mitchell‘s more obscure tunes "Cherokee Louise" and "Ladies' Man". Owen makes these songs her own. She molds the
familiar melodies and lyrics to contemporary pop hits and longtime favorites to her unmistakable voice and style. Owen describes her album redisCOVERed
like this: “These are great songs that I’ve deconstructed and re-claimed or simply found my life and new meaning in the lyrics.”

Owen’s arrangements breathe fresh life into familiar songs recording with Grammy® winning co-producer/mixer/engineer David Bianco (Tom Petty, Bob
Dylan, Meghan Trainor) and some sharp musical talent including legendary bassist Leland Sklar (James Taylor, Carole King, Leonard Cohen) and master
percussionist Pedro Segundo, both key members of Judith’s live band. The album includes notable contributions from Paul Beard (Bryan Ferry, James
Blunt), George Shelby (Phil Collins, Bette Midler), Snarky Puppy member Michael ‘Maz’ Maher, Grammy® winning jazz trumpeter Nicholas Payton and
her dazzling London string players; longtime cellist collaborator Gabriella Swallow and violinist Lizzie Ball (Nigel Kennedy, Jeff Beck).

Judith will be joined by bass legend Leland Sklar whose discography speaks for itself playing on over 2500 albums including James Taylor, Jackson Browne,
Linda Ronstadt, Lyle Lovett, Phil Collins, Billy Cobham, and many more, and special guest George Shelby on saxophone.

What’s been said about Judith Owen….

“This firebrand singer, songwriter, pianist and raconteur is currently riding the wave of a tremendous couple of years. Her previous album,
Somebody’s Child was adored by critics around the world with The Sunday Times selecting it as one of the best records of 2016, and Analog Planet said
that it “sparkles with Owen’s witty energy” noting that “the songs will stay with you long after the record ends”.
