Judy Lea has been writing songs since, like, forever. I think the first song she and her cousin wrote together was called, “Don’t Be Slow Baby”. (Very sophisticated for 9 and 10 year olds ☺.)
She won her first guitar in a jiving contest at the age of 15 and has been playing ever since. She’s been in rock bands, funk bands, pop bands and has sung and played guitar in at least 4 different duos over the years, doing everything from jazz to country.
After becoming a mother, Judy started performing at parties, celebrations and festivals for children and families, and has been teaching music and dance to kids, young and old for the last 20+ years.
Her first kids’ CD, “Too Much Work To Do”, was nominated ‘Best Children’s Album of the Year’ at the West Coast Music Awards way back in 1998.
These days, Judy mostly uses her songwriting skills and vocal, guitar and percussion talents to play for and teach music to the kids in Burnaby elementary schools.
Things are finally opening up and you might be starting to think about summer at the beach! but.. are you afraid to show your toes in public?
Imagine if you had TWELVE!! You might just have the ‘Twelve Toe Blues’. Then again, you might be worrying about what could happen if you got taken to ‘Sea Monster Daycare’ instead of your regular daycare!
Check out these and more tunes on Spotify, Amazon music, Apple Music or on Judy’s SoundCloud channel.
Judy has also created four videos for her youtube channel. Here’s her latest one,( Green, Please!) Watch it and ‘like it’ on YouTube:
Wath this space for her up-and-coming claymation/puppet animation for Sea Monster Day Care. It will be slow in the making but so much fun! (See pics on Instagram!)
