Twilight on the Pier with Judy Mowatt

Judy Mowatt

Judy Mowatt is one of the strongest, most influential female vocalists in reggae
music. In addition to faithfully recording and touring with Bob Marley as one of
the I-Threes from 1974 until Bob’s passing, she has put out at least nine solid
solo albums. HerBlack Woman LP (Shanachie, 1980) is considered by many
critics to be the greatest reggae LP ever recorded by a female artiste. It was also
the first reggae LP to be produced by a woman.
Judy shared her thoughts, "I see another grassroots movement being born inside
of the people of God. Because I think what God did inside the birth of reggae
message was to uplift the people that were in degradation, the people who
suffered. I mean, the music was birthed out of suffering! Out of Trench Town. It
was inside of the pain and the agony that people started singing about it. It is
inside of the pain that people are experiencing, where God has given us songs
and he's using the Gospel as a vehicle to go inside places where we probably
would not be able to go. But I see this as a continuation of what took place in the
'70s in Jamaica."
Judy Mowatt is a very spiritual woman who has continued to grow and evolve on
her spiritual journey over the years. In her live performances she shares with
conviction her current thoughts and beliefs without compromise. Her beautiful
voice is still a joy to hear, strong and true.
Judy Mowatt is a legend.
