We Are Us!
Three award-winning singer-songwriters, Judy Kass, Glen Roethel, and Amy Soucy combine their eclectic talents and musical influences to encourage positive change, unity, and dialogue. The trio spices their message-driven songs with luscious harmonies, robust melodies, and unexpected twists and turns.
New York-based Judy Kass, quickly draws in her audience with soulful vocals, no-nonsense lyrical storytelling, and genre-bending exploration of guitar and piano. Her original music blends generous amounts of Folk, Jazz, and Blues with songs that cover the full gamut of mood and experience. Judy’s 2014 debut album, Better Things, and her recent release, Beyond the Ash and Steel (2016) both received notable airplay, topping Folk and Roots radio charts for months after their release and appearing on the Folk DJ List of Top Albums for the years 2014 and 2016 respectively. Her song, "Look at Us Marching Now" was selected as a Top 5 Winner in the Singer-Songwriter category of the Great American Song Contest (2018). www.judykass.com
Amy Soucy is a Beacon, NY-based contemporary folk chanteuse who writes evocative songs exploring the kaleidoscope of human experience (dreams, longing, forgiveness, and healing) and sings them in a voice that’s been called “powerful,” “comforting,” and “angelic.” In 2016, she was selected for a coveted spot in the Emerging Artist Showcase at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and took home first prize in the CT Folk Songwriting Competition. www.amysoucymusic.com
