Once out in Washington for college at age 18, Judd quickly formed his own band in Olympia after playing guitar in the echo chamber night after night by himself for endless hours at the Evergreen State College. Eventually, some friends let him play bass and sing, and eventually produce their record. This band was The Pasties. The Pasties endured some mild success, landing a spot in the film “Kurt Cobain About A Son” that debuted at The Toronto Film Festival. Judd helped out with some audio recording on the film, as well as appearing in it.
Eventually, Judd decided to go to Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle to get his music degree.
After Cornish, Judd continued to perform in various bands and solo. His solo career really started to take off thanks to Ed Beeson and Gigs4U, as well as Dan Steinberg and Square Peg (now Emporium Presents). Judd landed opening slots for some pretty well-known artists, and was exposed to thousands of new fans and people through Gigs4U Seatac airport music program. (Judd was the first musician to perform at SeaTac).
These days, Judd finds himself with a new album of acoustic originals, called “For You.”
