Biografia

Costa Oeste dos EUA (1971 – 1979)

Judee Sill (Judith Lynn Sill, 7 de Outubro de 1944) foi uma cantora e compositora norte-americana, nascida em Oakland, Califórnia. Primeira artista a assinar com a Asylum Records, de David Geffen, Judee lançou dois álbuns e trabalhou brevemente como cartunista antes de morrer em 1979. Musicalmente, seu folk era fortemente influenciado pela métrica das suítes de Bach e pelo estilo de Ray Charles. Suas letras costumavam abranger temas místicos e cristãos como o êxtase e a redenção.

Judee perdeu o pai (morto de pneumonia em 1952) e o irmão ainda bem jovem. Sua mãe casou-se novamente com Ken Muse, homem responsável pela animação Tom & Jerry. A Sra. Sill logo tornou-se alcoólatra, a exemplo do novo esposo. Judee nunca aceitou o fato de sua mãe ter se casado com Muse e não simpatizava com a personalidade autoritária do padrasto. Passou a andar com turmas rebeldes e se envolver com crimes e drogas, notadamente a heroína. Fontes não-oficiais contam que Judee chegou a prostituir-se para bancar o consumo de drogas. Foi presa uma vez e, na cadeia, conseguiu largar o vício.

Começa então a compor. Ainda criança costumava praticar piano e violão no bar de seu pai. Com 19 anos embarcou numa viagem de carro, onde cruzou os EUA com duas amigas. Ao retornar da viagem, fixando residência na Costa Oeste dos EUA, ela conhece David Geffen, que acaba contratando-a para a sua recém-fundada Asylum Records. Através de Geffen, Judee conhece Graham Nash, que produz o primeiro single da cantora: “Jesus Was a Cross Maker”. Seu debut, “Judee Sill” (1971), foi aclamado pela crítica, mas era pouco comercializável.

    Wow I can't believe I never listened to this before. I love these lyrics, they're so ridiculous. and I mean that in a good way.

    What an interesting body of work. She definitely deserves more recognition.

    "You're absolutely insane. Sill will always be considered a minor artist of the era because she really didn't attempt anything new, or even particularly expressive. Mitchell clearly moved the music scene with her, and constantly incorporated from outside genres into her pop sound. Her voice was also significantly more adaptable than Sill's." Sure. Sill's incorporation of elements of gospel and chamber music with a deeply unfashionable thematic obsession with eschatology and redemption is just generic pop fare, but let's laud Joni's explorations into, for example, jazz-funk (with a lyrical fixation on the minutiae of the sex lives of boring middle-class white people) as visionary and masterful, rather than the slightly painful dreck that most of it is.

    I am in love... I have this on constant rotation. Proof that true craftsmanship & genius will always endure & eventually bloom through for the rest of us to enjoy years later... I can see the need to compare her to Joni but kinda comparing plums to kiwi. would you compare Nick Drake to Bob Dylan? of course not. Judge Judee on her own merit.

    I have listened to little else since I first learned about Judee a few weeks ago. She's my favorite musical discovery of recent years. Her melodies have a way of getting under your skin and into your bones. An astonishing, singular, and criminally underheard talent. Not a bad song in her whole canon and many masterpieces Fellow fans may enjoy: http://judeesillappreciation.tumblr.com/

    What could have been. Guess we're lucky to have the music she did release.
