Judy Akin has also headlined for two sold out, live performances at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts. Her voice has been praised as "pure and affecting" by the Orange County Register, while fan reviews on music download markets continue to describe her singing delivery as "smooth, sensual, and warm."


Judy's holiday CD "JUDY AKIN ‐ SEASONED" (multi‐platinum producer/songwriter Steven McClintock, Grammy award winning engineer, Casey Wood) sold out during the first run within four weeks of delivery, was Number #1 with NashvilleIM.com for over 3 months, and was Number #1 among the top 10 seller lists for music downloads on Airplay Access.

Another song from her “SEASONED” CD called “ONE PERFECT CHRISTMAS” played on KOST 103.5


Cashbox Magazine, Inc., reviewed "Seasoned" as follows, "Judy Akin has put together a perfect little collection of smooth and easy songs for the Holidays. Her voice is warm inviting and controlled and in a range that is very similar to the wonderful Karen Carpenter. It is going to be difficult to find a more perfect Christmas CD this year that is going to be as warm as a hickory fire in your own fireplace."


One of her fans wrote in her online guestbook, ".... finally a fresh, clear voice to sing our holiday favorites, new songs too. Someone we can watch-for, look-at, and listen-to. A/W."
