Judith's core band of drummer Russ Kunkel, bassist Lee Sklar and guitarist Waddy Wachtel have a wealth of experience between them, having worked with artists such as Carole King, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell and Jackson Browne. Consequently this album certainly has a band feel, and harks back to the seventies in a very authentic way.
The songs on 'Ebb & Flow' touch on the deepest emotions of Owen's own storied life with an unswerving honesty. Although her songs are highly personal, the emotions are universal.
'Singing about the human condition, living under the shadow of loss and frustration and sadness and loneliness and not being gratuitously sentimental about it, instead making something beautiful out of it - that's the songwriter's job'. Judith Owen
