Judy Collins has continued an impressive career with an extensive catalog from every decade through the ‘60s, ‘70s, ‘80s, ‘90s and up to the present. She released her first album, A Maid of Constant Sorrow, in 1961 and began a thirty-five-year association with Jac Holzman and Elektra Records. Collins is noted for her rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” on her 1967 album, Wildflowers, which has since been entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame.  Winning “Song of the Year” at the 1975 Grammy Awards was Judy’s version of “Send in the Clowns,” a ballad written by Stephen Sondheim for the Broadway musical “A Little Night Music.”

Collins has authored several books, including the inspirational memoir Sanity & Grace, focusing on the death of her only son and the healing process following the tragedy. She co-directed with Jill Godmillow an Academy Award-nominated film about Antonia Brico, the first woman to conduct major symphonies around the world – and Judy’s classical piano teacher when she was young. In 1999, Collins founded her own record label, Wildflower Records – a grass roots artist-driven label committed to nurturing fresh talent.
