Dutch Americana songwriter Judy Blank records in Nashville. Blank tours in Europe because of the prohibitive cost of US work visas for musicians. American audiences will have to live off videos and her album, Morning Sun, to enjoy her take on nuanced songwriting.
European Americana Songwriter
While hip hop prevails among younger audiences in the Netherlands, Blank found her audience with an older, but dedicated demographic. US songwriters often find their first superfans in Dutch audiences, which is as much the “exotic import” factor as anything. The novelty is less for Judy Blank as a homegrown Dutch Americana musician, so her songs and performances must stand out.
