Judy Unger

My name is Judy Unger and I am a passionate songwriter following my dream. I really see my story as miraculous. In 2010, during a very difficult time in my life, music returned to uplift me after 30 years of silence. I have a blog where I opened my heart to share my journey of healing through my music. I named it "My Journeys Insight."

I have been a commercial illustrator since 1981. Many of my paintings can be seen on these products: Del Monte Pickle products, Beechnut baby-food and Tillamook yogurts and ice cream treats.

For thirty years, I focused upon my art career and my family. I gave up songwriting and playing guitar; I had been a classical guitarist in college. When I began to play my guitar again, I found joy and soon my entire life was transformed. I found an arranger for my songs and recorded all of them.

Music has healed me of so much of my pain. What I find so beautiful about songwriting, is how just a few lines of lyrics tell a story. There is something about an exquisite melody. The sweet notes burrow inside my heart and mind to extract the truth. Things I’ve had difficulty writing down or talking about, have erupted as song lyrics.

My life has been a musical. This survivor of grief went through a door to follow her dream.
