Critically-acclaimed Dallas jazz and pop singer Judy Chamberlain’s engaging personality allows her to move easily between many styles of music – swing, pop, Broadway and a century of Broadway and the movies – often in the same set.
Chamberlain has been a bandleader, journalist, broadcaster and concert producer. She has performed for thousands of society weddings, events and club dates in upscale venues and resorts, and at the private parties of high-profile politicians, buissnessmen and the very composers who wrote the songs she sings.
Songwriter Paul Anka presented her with special lyrics to his blockbuster hit, “My Way,” with the request that she sing it at her Year 2000 New Year’s Eve show.
Former Los Angeles Times jazz critic Don Heckman has said that Judy knows more tunes than any other artist who has ever lived, while radio legend Chuck Niles called her “a walking encyclopedia.”
She has been written about frequently, by daily newspapers including The Los Angeles Times, Orange County Register and and The Dallas Morning News. To wit:
“Judy Chamberlain is a terrific jazz singer.” Rebecca Schoenkopf, Orange County Weekly.
“She makes you laugh, cry and want to dance and drink martinis all night.” Ann Chatillon, Coast Magazine
“Name a song, and she’ll sing it. A huge repertoire testifies to singer Judy Chamberlain’s first love: jazz.” The Dallas Morning News
“Jazz singer/bandleader Judy Chamberlain has mastered the art of mesmerizing both the audience and her own band.” All-Music Guide
“Judy Chamberlain is a singer who’s always a pleasure to hear. In part, because her astonishing repertoire makes every performance a fascinating journey through a century of song. But even more so because she brings such care, authenticity and musicality to everything she touches.”Don Heckman, The International Review of Music
“(Chamberain is) almost guaranteed to know your favorite love song, no matter how obscure it may be.” The Los Angeles Times
A professional entertainer and music historian since she first sang with a big band on the East Coast as a teenager, Chamberlain brings the storyteller’s gift of phrasing to an extensive collection of classic standards.
A New York City native, Chamberlain lived in Southern California for thirty years before relocating to Texas in 2011.
