Born in Bar Harbor, Maine, Jude Johnstone began writing songs at about age 8. At 18, she was "discovered" by E-Street Band saxophonist, Clarence Clemons. After spending some time in New York and New Jersey under his wing, in 1979, she moved to Los Angeles, where her songs quickly became sought after by other artists. She has been covered by Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Bette Midler, Johnny Cash, Stevie Nicks, Jennifer Warnes, Trisha Yearwood, etc., including a #1 song for Yearwood's debut album called "The Woman Before Me" which earned her a BMI award. Her songs have appeared on 10 Trisha Yearwood albums.
She also penned the title track to Johnny Cash's Grammy winning album "Unchained."
