In preparation for this years @PonderosaFest, I did a short summer themed Q&A. Check it out over at http://www.ponderosafestival.com/blog/
WOW, what just happened! We got first place in the 2015 Emerging Artist Program. Thank you so much to K96.3 - Kelowna's Classic Rock and Music BC. We learned so much along the way. We are totally excited to play at this years Ponderosa Arts & Music Festival. We would also like to say congratulations to all the other artists involved, including Wild Son and Honest Woods for taking home the silver and bronze. We had a great time sharing the stage with you all, and feel honoured to be part of such a cool music community. $5,000 dollars should be just enough for all three of us to get giant matching Gary Busey tattoos (j/k!). New single coming soon!
RIP Ben E. King
Hey friends! We have decided to enter this years CBC Searchlight competition. It's a vote based competition, so I was hesitant to join....I always kind of assumed the people who win these things are high school bands with a million friends who will click on anything just to see what happens. However, I also realize we have nothing to lose by throwing our name into the hat. So why not. If you'd like to help us out you can go HERE and vote for us. You are allowed to vote once a day. If you have the time, we'd really appreciate it. If not, no worries... it's fine...forget I ever asked....jeez.
Sometimes I get to score a cool commercial. Sometimes they star Pharrell Williams. Sometimes I like my job. Sometimes I brag a little bit.
Hey Friends! I'm very excited to share our new LIVE video with you. This was my first time editing a video, and I'm pretty happy with how it all turned out. Hope you like it!
We had a blast playing at the Streaming Cafe last night. You can watch the entire show below. First half is a solo set, second half is full band.
Christmas is almost upon us, and I'm in a giving mood. My entire discography is now available for free @ https://andrewjudah.bandcamp.com
I've gone back and forth from free to payed downloads over the last few years. I change my mind a lot, I'm undecided. The value of music is something I've thought a lot about lately. It seems like there is a developing culture of musicians being open and honest about their finances. Transparency is very cool, I'm stoked about that.
I believe that people who truly value art will support the people who make it, be it financially or otherwise. However if you don't know an artists work, should you have to pay for it?
I'd be lying if I told you I've never pirated an album, or streamed something on Youtube or Spotify before ever purchasing it. So if you want my music for free, please take it and don't feel guilty at all. It's only fair.
I'm not on a record label, I fund this project myself. Monster cost me quite a bit more to make than anything else I've ever done. I'm extremely proud of it, and wouldn't have it any other way. If you feel it ads value to your life, consider supporting me by donating/buying a t-shirt or something.
I'd love to know your thoughts on the subject. Chime in, let's chat!
Albino Black Bear is 3 years old today. I released it on my birthday, as a gift to myself. If you don't have it yet, I want you to have it for free. My gift to you.
Today it snowed. I made this
