Judy Cheeks has once again collaborated with Shaun O’Shea to produce another masterpiece! Love Dancin’ embodies the very essence of Judy. It’s a soulful tapestry of her life, her friends, her experiences and most of all her passion. Every song is delivered in a way that makes listeners feel she’s tapped on the windows of their souls and whispered their innermost secrets back to them… letting them know we’re on this journey of life together…and that “Love’s Got to Find Love”.
The album starts with “Safe In Your Arms” written by Judy’s lifelong friend Betty Wright. It is just a little glimpse into their childhood together. While other kids were basking in the Miami heat playing games and amusing themselves, Judy and Betty were at Judy’s piano writing songs and imitating their favourite Gospel singers. Even at such a tender age they both lived for music! This is their first professional collaboration but it’s indicative of the bond they share musically and privately. There is a Miami feel to the song enhanced by Betty’s amazingly soulful voice at the very end… It’s a real treat!
Another friend is the incomparable Stevie Wonder! Over the years Stevie and Judy have written several songs together, one of which “ If I Were You” was on the Danger Zone album. The two first met in Germany when Judy sang on Stevie’s “The Woman In Red” album and have remained friends.
“Love Dancin’” is one of the most exciting tracks on this album… It’s funky, full of fun and carries a powerful message of the strength of lovers who triumph over bad times.
Every song on this album touches you in a way that’s so personal and intimate it’s amazing… Judy is known for her passionate delivery of songs but this album goes deeper…
It’s very personal yet universal.
Perhaps the most profound element of this project is friendship…
Shaun O’Shea has known Judy Cheeks’ music since he was 12 years old… Never in his wildest dreams as he stared at her Mellow Lovin’ album cover all those years ago, could he have imagined he would have the opportunity of working with her. Enjoy LOVE DANCIN’
It’s a testament of love, friendship and life
