Judy Collins has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism. In the 1960s, she evoked both the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Five decades later, Collins’ luminescent presence shines brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her iconic 50-album body of work, and heed inspiration from her spiritual discipline to thrive in the music industry for half a century. The award-winning singer-songwriter is esteemed for her imaginative interpretations of traditional and contemporary folk standards and her own poetically poignant original compositions. Her stunning rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” from her landmark 1967 album, Wildflowers, has been entered into the GRAMMY Hall of Fame and her dreamy and sweetly intimate version of “Send in the Clowns,” won the GRAMMY Award for Song of the Year. Most recently, Collins’ album, Silver Skies Blue was nominated for Best Folk Album at the 2017 GRAMMYs. Additionally, she has garnered several Top 10 hits, as well as numerous Gold and Platinum selling albums. Collins is as creatively vigorous as ever, writing, touring worldwide, and nurturing fresh talent. She continues to create music of hope and healing that lights up the world and speaks to the heart.
