“This year, plenty of folks have voiced a desire to return to better days, happier moments, and times filled with more connection. Though one new album can’t repair all the world’s woes, Can’t We Be Friends from Los Angeles vocalist Judy Whitmore does take listeners back in time in its own way.” – American Songwriter, Nov. 18, 2020
As the co-producer of that album, I’m thrilled to announce that Judy Whitmore’s “Can’t We Be Friends,” a full-length release of a dozen timeless songs carefully selected from the Great American Songbook, and recorded with 53 top studio musicians, is available on your favorite streaming service, including Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, Amazon, and YouTube Music.
You can also buy the album as a 16-Bit – CD Quality (44.1 kHz – Stereo) download from Qobuz.
