Judy Brunet comes back to the Comox Valley from the island community of Sointula, BC where she has delighted audiences for many years. This memorable acoustic performer and songwriter brings a unique style and repertoire to the stage. Her warm vocals, expressive nuances, and insightful lyrics have been an enjoyable addition to North Island fundraisers, coffee houses, festivals, and community events for many years.
Born in southern Alberta, and raised in Calgary, she grew up listening to her mom's favorite country artists. Her love for singing naturally led to a love for performing and included regular appearances on "Calgary Safety Roundup", a telelvision program featuring young talent. After moving to Vancouver Island she spent her teen years in the Comox Valley absorbing the sounds of Christine McVie, Carly Simon, and Carole King among others. She also learned to play the guitar and began writing songs of her own, as well as short stories and comedic monologues.
Generously supported by those who have appreciated her musical contributions, Judy produced her debut CD "Pieces of View" from her home, and released it in November 2002. The album is a mix of original blues, easy listening, and spiritual songs, and features additional Sointula musicians Randy Stark, Andre Kaufmann, and Liz Harvey.
A second recording, "Persuaded" is in the works and Judy looks forward to new opportunities to develop her skills as a producer, writer, musician, and performer.
