About Judy!

Judy started singing at a young age...

Judy Nazemetz

much to the annoyance of the neighbors – while swinging on her backyard swings. When she was in the 3rd grade, she was the only one in her class to not back out of the classroom talent show. She came in second.

Judy's sung in musicals, on commercials, on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and for Mike Stoller when she sang the lead in the pre-Broadway workshops of "The People in the Picture." But, Judy's talents truly burst forth when she entered the world of improvisation and answered the challenge of instantaneously coming up with songs in various genres based on audience suggestions.

One day, years later, when she found a blank notebook and a pencil that was actually sharp, Judy started writing down her songs and her first album, "Variety Pak," was born. And now - her second album, Balancing Act, is available on CDBaby!

Judy balances her songwriting work with her acting work: on TV in commercials and voiceovers, her 100 appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and various sitcoms, in film (she was recently hired as a dancer — and she ain’t doing a polka!) and on the stage. Her standup character, Smokey Lady, is the stuff of legends.

New album out now

More original, fun songs from the artist who brought you VARIETY PAK!


Judy Nazemetz's new album “Balancing Act" is the followup to Judy’s celebrated 2014 breakthrough release “Variety Pak.” “Balancing Act" features 12 new songs, done with Judy’s unique sense of humor (though, to be honest, there are a couple of serious songs, as well). Her songs address a range of subjects including lousy drivers, that first cup of coffee, mortality, hanging clothes on the line, arrogance, a stick of butter, the rising tide (literally), love, and senior moments. Did I mention senior moments? And, it wouldn’t be a Judy album if it didn’t have a bunch of different genres: country, jazz, folk, reggae, gospel, Jimmy Buffett-esque (that’s a genre, I Googled it) and a special holiday tune sung by Mrs. Claus.

Once again, Chad Watson is producing (and playing bass, guitar, organ, mandolin and trombone) and has gathered some incredible musicians to help out: Don Peake, The Vincent Sisters, Neftali Santiago, Jim Brock, John Wakefield, Jeff Gold, JT Thomas, Eddie Hedges, John Krovoza, Richard Barron, Terry Paul Roland, Ferrell Marshall, Matt Margucci, Pam Loe, Brad Swanson, BBnJ Quartet, and Charlie Rich, Jr.
