Member of Tzuke and Paxo & The Tzukettes
Judie Myers was born in London of an English Mother and a Polish extract Father.
After an education in the arts, music and drama, by the age of 15 Judie spent most of her time writing poems which she turned into songs and playing folk clubs, accompanying herself on acoustic guitar. In 1975 she met Mike Paxman and together they started to write the songs that were to become her first releases. After making some demo tapes, they managed to get a record deal with David Bowie and T.Rex producer Tony Visconti's label Good Earth.
Judie decided to change her name back to her original family's surname "Tzuke". A single was released: "These are The Laws" which was recorded and produced by Tony Visconti and came out under the name of "Tzuke and Paxo". Whilst at Good Earth, Judie and Mike met Bob Noble and Paul Muggleton who were also on the label with their band "Omaha Sheriff".
In 1977 Judie was signed to Elton John's Rocket Records. Judie and Mike spent the next six months or so recording her first album 'Welcome To The Cruise' at Air Studios in London, with producer John Punter.
The first single was released in the summer of 1978, entitled 'For You' and was greeted with great critical acclaim and substantial air-play.
Judie's first album 'Welcome To The Cruise' album was released in 1979 along with the single 'Stay With Me 'Till Dawn'. The song stayed in the UK charts for 16 weeks, and she made three live appearances on Top of the Pops. The song became a firm favourite and is still played regularly on Radio in the U.K. It has appeared on dozens of compilation albums and regularly appears in lists of all time most popular songs.
Between 1979 and 1992 she released a number of albums for both large and small record labels before taking a hiatus to start a family.
In 1996 she returned with "Under The Angels" her first album on her (and her partner, Paul Muggleton's) own label, Big Moon Records, selling via her website www.Tzuke.com and at gigs.
Since then she has continued to self release live and studio albums on a regular basis, subsequently licensing out a number to other companies such as Wrasse.
