BRIAN JUDAH BIOGRAPHY
by Ed Sherman (Entertainment Attorney)
Brian Judah is a multi-talented singer, songwriter, musician, performer, and record producer. He is nominated for a record-breaking 6 L.A. Music Awards this year, including Male Singer-Songwriter of the Year. Music has been Brian's ultimate passion since he was just a couple years old. He has been composing songs since the age of 9 years old and continues to compose every day. Brian has a soft spot for the piano, but he also plays a number of other instruments professionally, which include drums, percussion, guitar and keyboards. He is influenced by a very wide variety of artists and groups from Guns N' Roses, Queen and Stone Temple Pilots, all the way to Elvis Presley and Neil Diamond, and then to the more eclectic artists like Bjork, Radiohead, Tom Waits and Kraftwerk. He says that the music he's currently creating is probably considered Alternative/Rock/Pop, however, he is of the opinion that Alternative/Rock/Pop would be "a vague classification".
Born and still living in Los Angeles, this music machine just recently completed his debut album "Garden Of Edith", which is his version of a "theatrical rock opera concept record". He calls the record "a soundtrack to the first 26 years of his life". It features string and choral arrangements throughout the entire record by the one and only David Campbell, and elite drumming by Abe Laboriel Jr. and Matt Chamberlain. The record was mixed by Tchad Blake at Peter Gabriel's studio, Real World, in England, and mastered by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound in New York.
Brian had a huge recording and publishing deal for four years with a big indie label called DC3 Entertainment, and had a distribution deal with EMI. DC3 is owned by Jon Phelps, who also owns the well-known and respected Fullsail School in Florida. Unfortunately, Mr. Phelps' company had other interests to pursue and decided to part with all of their artists around the beginning of 2007. Kindly and fortunately though, Brian was given his debut album and all of his publishing back to him, which amounted to over three million dollars. Presently, Brian owns all of his publishing, which includes a catalog of over one-hundred solid songs, and also solely owns his debut album masterpiece "Garden Of Edith", which is titled in honor of his mother Edith Judah who passed away from breast cancer when Brian was just 17 years old.
Today, Brian is more eager and ready than ever to communicate uniquely honest, passionate and intense music to the world on a very large scale. Brian is, one, looking for a new recording and publishing deal that will make "everyone" happy, and two, looking to begin production immediately on a new record he's working on right now called "PencilPaperPianoProblems". He has an awesome band that is currently performing with him around Los Angeles and they are completely ready to tour and promote Brian's music. Again, music has been Brian's ultimate passion since that magical moment when he first heard a note, and with music undoubtedly continuing to be his ultimate passion throughout his life, Brian is intensely determined to have a very long and successful career.
