GRAMMY NOMINEE JUDY PANCOAST

BIOGRAPHY

Effervescent, eccentric, energetic….all of these words describe Judy Pancoast; a singer, songwriter and recording artist who radiates joy in her music.  She crafts clever songs with infectious melodies that delight the young and the young at heart, as evidenced by the 2011 Grammy Award nomination for Best Children’s Album for her one-of-a-kind CD, Weird Things Are Everywhere

A child of the 70’s, Judy grew up listening to the music of The Carpenters and other Top 40 tunes with memorable melodies and catchy hooks.  She idolized Karen Carpenter, who inspired her to sing from the heart and reach for her dreams.  Today she makes music for kids all over the world whose parents value the innocence and joy of childhood: totally terrific tunes with timeless lyrics about childhood experiences that resonate across the generations. She calls it “Bubblegum Pop for Sweet Kids!”

Judy is also known among adult audiences for her infectious Christmas hit, “The House on Christmas Street,” which can be heard each Christmas season on radio stations across the country.  A search on www.youtube.com currently turns up nearly eight thousand videos of houses all over the world that feature the song in their animated lighting shows, including the acclaimed Holdman video, which currently has over 200-thousand views.  Judy’s second Christmas album, “Christmas with Mrs. Claus,” was released in 2012.

There’s a true interaction between performer and audience that goes on at every Judy Pancoast concert, something children remember for a lifetime.  In fact, she often receives emails such as this one….

            My friends and I are graduating from high school tomorrow, and we were talking about the things we loved as kids and we all thought of you.   We listened to your music all the time when we were little, and we just thought you ought to know how important you are to us.

Judy’s outrageously fun family performances have created a ruckus throughout the USA wherever children and families gather.  She’s performed twice in concert at the request of President Clinton.  The organizers of the New York City fundraiser for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation and Robert DeNiro’s Tribeca Family Street Fair know the effect she has on audiences and have asked Judy to return year after year to create a ruckus in their neighborhood.   The children at the Nyumbani Orphanage in Kenya experienced the joy of working with Judy when she traveled twice to Nairobi for week-long songwriting workshops.  The songs are available on a fundraising CD for the orphanage.

In addition to her concerts for children and families, Judy also presents “Closer to You:  A Tribute to The Carpenters” featuring the music of the brother-sister duo along with Judy’s reminiscences of their effect on her life and her dreams.  Rather than an impersonation, this is truly a heartfelt tribute from a lifelong fan, and is now available for booking at theatres and performing arts centers throughout the U.S.
