Biography


Peter Judd :Larger than Life! smaller than a fridge. Peter Judd's meticulous songwriting craftsmanship,comedic timing and commanding vocals - often compared to Johnny Cash- distinguish him from other Canadian solo artists mining a similar vein. With his debut CD "Ink Stains" he joins the short list of storytellers taking ordinary lives and turning them into memorable songs like his OCFF award winning " How to Build a Wall." "When Jory Nash phoned to tell me it won in the humour category I thought to myself- 'how nice...' people find humour in my depression. Golly. Thanks."It's this kind of self depreciating, tongue in cheek riffing that's winning over audiences at concert halls,festivals and pretty much anywhere that this emerging artist needs to play to earn a living doing what he loves. Having gained invaluable wisdom during his travels -mostly not what NOT to do- he eagerly shares it wherever he goes. "never attempt levity in an Oktoberfest hall with the words: 'so THIS is what the world would look like if Hitler had won the war.'"But thankfully with experience comes the wisdom to know the right things to say like he did recently after receiving an ovation in front of 200 "Fred Heads..." "Before I go I'd like to thank Fred Eaglesmith for graciously agreeing to be the closing act for my first sold-out concert performance."
