He fingerpicks with the delicacy, assurance and color of Nick Drake; sings with the bell-like clarity and gentle high end of a lost Finn brother; and writes Anglo- and pop-inflected folksongs with the offhand grace and deceptive sophistication of early James Taylor, Richard Thompson or Sir Paul himself.” - John Burdick

HV 1 Art and Music

Evocative and refreshingly melodic, Jude Roberts’ music makes you feel as though you’ve rediscovered a song you never knew. His record “Perfect Shell” showcases a diversity of songwriting styles and captures the connectivity of his live performances. It features pedal steel, guitar and co-production by Rob Stein (The Mammals feat. Mike + Ruthy, Johnny Society, Bob Dylan Band). Jude was selected to perform at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival 2018 as part of the emerging artist showcase.  Having traveled extensively throughout Europe for performing and pleasure, Jude is very excited be leading music retreats to Greece beginning in October 2019. In his sound one can hear influences of English, Irish and Appalachian folk music. Listening deeper, one can find the impressions of baroque and Romantic-era classical pieces and European folk/pop.  A unique amalgam of style and talent, Jude Roberts draws the listener inward and invites them to dive in deep.
