Jazz Singer Judy Chamberlain Bio
“Judy Chamberlain knows more songs than anyone who has ever lived.” Jazz Critic Don Heckman (Village Voice, L.A. Times, International Review of Music)
New York City native Judy Chamberlain began singing professionally at the age of 13, shuttling between Manhattan and Connecticut to work with and learn from talented veterans of early jazz and swing.
During a three-decade career in Southern California, she performed with her band in a variety of settings, produced jazz concerts for Pacific Public Radio’s K-JAZZ 88.1 FM and was featured in the 2006 Playboy Jazz Festival.
Along the way, she wrote about restaurants and penned society and op-ed columns.
“Dining With Judy,” a long-running feature on Newport Beach’s K-OCEAN 103.1 FM was well-known to Orange County foodies, as was her “Savoir Fare” series — the cameramen called it “Judy’s Hair” — on The Orange County News Channel.
An avid music historian, Judy has been honored to perform for some of the composers who wrote the songs she sings.
In 1999, Paul Anka presented her with her own lyrics to his Sinatra hit, “My Way,” calling it “My Way, Her Way.”
Chamberlain continues to perform; she is currently based in Dallas, Texas.
