Judy Collins Wiki Biography
Born Judith Marjorie Collins on the 1st May 1939 in Seattle, Washington USA, Judy is a singer, songwriter and musician who has recorded in country, pop and rock and roll genres. She has a total of 27 studio albums, which include “In My Life” (1966), “Wildflowers” (1967), and “Judith” (1975) among many others.
Have you ever wondered how rich Judy Collins is, as of early 2017? According to authoritative sources it has been estimated that Collins’ net worth is as high as $12 million, an amount earned through her successful career in the music industry. Apart from studio albums, Judy has also released a number of compilation albums, which include “Colors of the Day” (1972), which achieved platinum status, and certainly also increased her wealth.
Judy is the eldest child born to a blind singer and disc jockey. She spent her first ten years in Seattle, but then her father started working in Denver, Colorado and the whole family moved there. She began taking lessons in classical piano under Antonia Brico, and soon made her first public appearance, playing Mozart’s Concerto for Two Pianos. Gradually Judy inclined towards folk and country music, and after hearing the tunes of such renowned musicians as Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger, she started playing guitar. Judy went to Denver’s East High School, and after matriculation began playing at local bars as a folk artist, which eventually resulted in a recording deal with the Elektra Records.
At only 22 years old, Judy released her debut album, entitled “A Maid of Constant Sorrow” (1961). Following the release of her third album “Judy Collins 3” (1963), her name started becoming more and more popular, and during the ‘60s she released such critically acclaimed albums as “In My Life” (1966), “Wildflowers” (1967), and “Who Knows Where the Time Goes” (1968), all of which achieved gold status, and which increased her net worth to a large degree.
Judy continued to record in the ‘70s, and with albums such as “Whales & Nightingales” (1970), “True Stories and Other Dreams” (1973), “Judith” (1975), and “Hard Times For Lovers” (1979), only cemented her spot on the music scene, and further increased her wealth. Unfortunately her music career began to decline from the start of the ‘80s; although she has released a number of studio albums to the present day, only a few have reached success, such as “Home Again” (1984), which was her last album released in US and last for Elektra Records, then “Amazing Grace” (1985), the first album for the UK record label Telstar. Some of her later albums include “Baby’s Morningtime” (1990), “Shameless” (1994), “Paradise” (2010), and most recently “Silver Skies Blue” (2016).
Judy has also an accomplished actress, and has appeared in such films as “A Town Has Turned to Dust” (1998), and “What a Girl Wants” (2003).
To speak further of her accomplishments, she has authored a number of books, including “Trust Your Heart” (1987) – her debut – then “Amazing Grace” (1991), “Sanity and Grace: A Journey of Suicide, Survival and Strength“ (2003), and “Sweet Judy Blue Eyes: My Life in Music” (2011), the sales of which also added to her net worth.
Regarding her personal life, Judy has been married to Louis Nelson since 1996. Previously, she was married to Peter A. Taylor, from 1958 until 1965; the couple had one son, who committed suicide at 33 years old.
Judy had several health problems since the early age; when she was 11, she suffered from polio, and then in the ‘70s she was suffering from bulimia, fortunately she managed to recover completely, although she now speaks of her rehabilitation from an addiction to alcohol.
She is an activist, and has supported numerous organizations and movements, such as Yippie movement, UNICEF organization, and is an activist for suicide prevention, among many other activities.

Judy Collins Quotes
- I have always been grateful that I did not fall in love with Leonard (Cohen) in the way that I fell in love with his songs. I could have, certainly.
- The hippies and the young followers of the music are the ones who are extending themselves into more understanding, because they understand that personal isolation is not the answer and that it’s life that is groovy, not killing and war and hypocrisy and the double standard. And acid is important to all this.
- There’s so much more understanding than there was a generation ago in this country. The be-in here was just overwhelming; a completely beautiful open experience, so friendly and so warm. At Monterey, the cops all had flowers on their motorcycles, and the police chief was so pleased with everything that he wore a wig to work Monday morning. There’s just no other answer than to love and to get together and to be open. There’s just no other choice, and part of this is being reflected in the music.
