Judith Parts, an Estonian artist, multi-instrumentalist and producer currently residing in Copenhagen, proudly presents her first solo album Meadowsweet. This enchanting musical masterpiece embarks the listener away on a captivating journey through self-discovery and personal growth.
Distinguished by its unique structure, Meadowsweet unveils a collection of songs and instrumental tracks divided into six chapters, which step by step reveal the story behind the album. Drawing inspiration from Nordic plants, Judith’s roots, and her ancestral lineage, the album gracefully pays homage to her Estonian heritage. Reflecting on her journey, Judith remarks, “Moving abroad made me really face myself. I started to realise how much we are formed by where we come from. How we carry all the beauty, but also all the pain that place and our ancestors have been through“.
The album is accompanied by stunning visuals, a result of Judith’s collaboration with a jewellery artist Claudia Lepik, photographer Todd Richter, videographer Pille Kannimäe, and stylist Liisa-Chrislin Saleh. “Since the whole album is my way of looking at my roots, it was important for me to go to nature in Estonia to shoot the visuals,” Judith says.
The title track of the album is directly inspired by the Nordic plant meadowsweet. Meadowsweet smells sweet like honey, cures headaches and makes people fall asleep. Standing in a field of blooming meadowsweet feels like smelling your lover and getting completely high from it.” says Judith.
The song Meadowsweet is a tribute to the strength, power, sensuality and softness embodied by the “Meadowsweet Queen”, a character that emerged from Judith’s experience in a field of blooming meadowsweet. “After writing that song, it was clear to me that it would become the title track of the album.”

Originally from Estonia, she draws a lot of her inspiration from the nature she grew up in.
