Folk/country songstress Judy Blank addresses our soul-sucking obsession with being ‘perfectionists’ in her new single “Mary Jane” where she embraces her flaws and defies any notion that there is a ‘right way’ to do things. The song’s rhythmic backbone is that of pop – it’s got a bouncy hook that is wound with folk strings where Judy’s smooth vocals soar with infectious confidence. Watch the lyric video below:

“Mary Jane” is from Judy Blank’s upcoming album Morning Sun, which she co-produced with Chris Taylor (Elle King, Miranda Lambert, The Wood Brothers) and will be out this fall. Originally from the Netherlands, Judy has quickly become one of the vanguards of Americana and country genre in Europe. She has played in Netherlands’ biggest festivals including North Sea Jazz, Lowlands and Pinkpop. The 23-year-old is currently on tour:
