THE legendary Ms. Judy Cheeks (who happens to be a very good friend of us here at talkaboutpopmusic.com) has given us an early Christmas present this year – a new album, which will be released in January 2020! “Love Dancin'” is available to pre-order now and we’ve been given exclusive access to some of the tracks on the album and they are certainly hot stuff!

This is Judy’s third studio album in as many years, following hot on the heels of 2018’s brilliant “Danger Zone” and 2019’s sensational “A Deeper Love“, and as always, Judy is back with her regular producer Shaun O’Shea, who helms this project once again. This is a partnership that has not only been through an emotional rollercoaster, but is even more astonishing when you learn that the two are separated by many thousands of miles (Judy is based in the US and Shaun in South Africa!).

We spoke to Judy earlier this year about the new album and what we can expect and she let us in on a number of secrets, not least that one of the tracks is written by her good friend Betty Wright, herself a soul and R&B singer, famed for her hits “Clean Up Woman” and “Where Is The Love?”! Judy has been teasing with a number of snippets over the past week and having had an exclusive listen here at the office, “Love Dancin'” is set to be a worthy successor to her two previous albums and kick off 2020 in fine style.

You can pre-order “Love Dancin'” now by clicking this link. The album will be released on 5th January 2020 and we will be reviewing it track-by-track as always, as well as speaking to Judy about its production!

Stay in touch with Judy through her WEBSITE and her FACEBOOK page – and now you can follow her on TWITTER too!

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
