It’s difficult to believe that Judy Dyble hasn’t release a solo album for five years now. Yes, there was a live recording in the wake of “Flow And Change” and there was some live performances, including ones with the briefly reformed TRADER HORNE, and session work, yet – apart from the singer’s collaboration with Andy Lewis last year, “Summer Dancing” (not made available for review)– there’s been a half-hiatus on creative front. The more welcome is “Earth Is Sleeping”: scheduled to hit the shelves on July 6th, this record should be a worthy continuation of Judy’s creative renaissance.

A remarkable writer, Dyble always welcomes collaborations to bring out the best in herself, and new album has a few: the title track with GRYPHON’s Brian Gulland playing oboe, “Promises” co-written with Matt Malley of COUNTING CROWS fame, “She Now Owns A Heart Of Stone” penned together with Matt Stevens from THE FIERCE AND THE DEAD who also adds guitar to the cut… With a new reading of HORNE’s “Velvet To Atone” to complement new songs, it must be great to listen to and drift away.
