John & Judy-In The Wood by David Cohen
Philadelphia brother and sister duo John & Judy release their debut CD In The Wood. Preforming together since childhood the In The Wood recording sessions culminated after a three-year gigging and writing period. In The Wood was recorded in the latter half of 2013 and reflecting back John & Judy state that due to their shared intuition the creative process flowed more smoothly than other bands might have experienced.
Judy on a five-string-electric viola and vocals brother John on guitar and vocals the twelve song thirty-two minute CD offers unique twists and turns along the meandering flow of the mighty river of music contained in the CD. Backing up John & Judy on various songs is: Tom Reock on drums, bass and Hammond B-3 organ along with Gin Ah Lim on violin. In The Wood was produced by Tom Reock at Squirrel Ranch Studios in Hamilton, New Jersey.
Keeping the music in the family John demonstrates his guitar chops on a Guild D60 that his father bought back in the 1980’s along with his Martin-000-15sm and American Standard Strat throughout the recordings. At first the duo was apprehensive about writing their own lyrics but after a lack of success in finding a lyricist the words fell into place and they were able to produce this first product in what will hopefully be a series of great recording in the future.
