Judd is a singer-songwriter and musician living in Seattle, WA.

Judd was born in New York City and grew up in a small town in Connecticut. At age 18, he moved to the west coast, where he attended The Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA. After years of playing in bands and taking whatever jobs he could, Judd moved up to Seattle, where he attended Cornish College of the Arts and earned his bachelor of music degree. Judd formed his own band, joined bands, and embarked on an ever increasingly busy solo career.

The highlight of Judd's music career in Olympia was landing a small part with his band The Pasties in the documentary film "Kurt Cobain About A Son."  The Pasties enjoyed some mild success before Judd finally left the band.

At Cornish, Judd studied songwriting, played jazz, Gamelan, and wrote for string quartet, chamber, percussion and jazz ensembles. Judd started a band with fellow students called Forget Me Nots.

Eventually Judd landed opening gigs for Lights (Canada) and played solo at Neptune Theater in Seattle, and Aladdin Theater in Portland. Judd later opened shows for Javier Colon, who won The Voice.

In 2013, Judd was the first musician to play live music at Seatac Airport as part of a new program to enhance traveler experience.

Judd has done a lot of different work with different organizations, charities, and clients in Seattle, bringing music in a variety of ways and lending his services to various projects. These include working with a homeless advocacy group Downtown Emergency Services, the busker program with Seattle Parks and Recreation, and contracting with Gigs4U, whose clients include Amazon, Seafair, and many more in Seattle.

Judd is a founding faculty member at Ballard Academy of Music and Dance, and taught guitar class as a faculty member at Bellevue College.

All the while, Judd has been recording and releasing music on his own. As of this writing, Judd is planning a Kickstarter campaign for a further reaching album. Stay tuned.
