“My main objective is to spread love to any and all willing to receive it.” – Judi Jackson World class US jazz and soul vocalist Judi Jackson performs her debut live show at Ellen’s. Judi includes her own interpretations of songs from jazz greats such as Nina Simone, Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald along with her original soul-infused music to create an unforgettable performance. Judi Jackson grew up in Roanoke, Virginia, playing piano and singing in the church choir. Inspired by the greats, her career started to take shape in her teens. She was just 16 when she opened for Mavis Staples, and two years later, teamed up with jazz fusionists Snarky Puppy to record her own song, 'Only Love', for their Grammy-winning album 'Family Dinner: Volume One'. She later moved to London, where she channelled influences such as Joni Mitchell, Sade and Erykah Badu into her acclaimed EP 'Blame It On My Youth'. @Ellen's
