Biography

Judie Tzuke (born Judie Myers, 3 April 1956, in London) is an English singer/songwriter. She is most well known for her 1979 hit “Stay With Me Till Dawn”, which reached no.16 on the UK Singles Chart.

After an education in the arts, music and drama, by the age of 15, Tzuke spent most of her time writing poems which she turned into songs and playing folk clubs, accompanying herself on acoustic guitar. She went to Island Records to try and get a record deal and after she’d played two songs was asked if she had any more. She replied that she had twenty, which she didn’t, and they asked her to come back and record them the following week. She didn’t return, but their interest made her realise that she could have a career in music.

In 1977 Tzuke went to see managing director David Croker at Elton John’s label ‘Rocket Records’ as their motto was “a label for artists”. She played them a few songs, one of which was “Stay with Me Till Dawn” and was immediately signed to the new label. Judie and collaborator Mike Paxman spent the next six months or so recording her first album Welcome to the Cruise at Air Studios in London, with producer John Punter.

The first single was released in the summer of 1978, entitled “For You” and was greeted with great critical acclaim and substantial air-play but only reached the top 40.

    Finally got to hear her live yesterday after being a lifetime fan, an amazing experience I'd recommend to anyone who has the chance - she sings beautifully, as do Bailey and Tallulah on backing vocals.

    O_O After hearing the previews of songs on "Moon On A Mirrorball" I think I should buy that compilation ASAP. Her voice reminds me of Sade and Annie Lennox, only it's better. :D

    Amazing voice... get to see her sing live if you can... she does not fail to please. I have been lucky enough to see her in concert twice and it was most excellent.

    LastFM just told me that there would be "50 plays in your library" of Judie Tzuke tracks, and #50 was "Water in motion", a beautiful song.
