Judy Stone (born 1 January 1942) is an Australian pop and country singer from Sydney, who came to national prominence in the late 1950s through her regular TV appearances on the Australian pop music show Brian Henderson’s Bandstand and her many hit records. Major national hits were ‘4,003,221 Tears From Now’ (1964), ‘Born a Woman’ (1966), ‘(Would You Lay With Me) in a Field of Stone’ (1974), ‘Mare Mare Mare’ (1974), ‘Hasta Manana’ (1976) and ‘Silver Wings & Golden Rings’ (1976).

As a young performer she was “by lined” as The Cowgirl from Granville but on her first appearance on “Bandstand” it was mis-announced as The Callgirl from Granville. In 1963, she recorded “It Takes a Lot (To Make Me Cry)” on which the Bee Gees (Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb) sing backup vocals, and the song was released as a single in July.

Judy’s most recent recording was a duet with Scottish singer/songwriter Isla Grant on a stirring rendition of her song What’s A Girl To Do? from Isla’s 2007 album “Down Memory Lane“. Judy Stone is a survivor of throat cancer.
