ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Judd Starr's release of his debut album Luminescent, is a culmination of his musical experience from his childhood, until the very moment when he recorded the album as an adult. Judd wrote, performed, recorded and mixed the entire album himself. This jack-of-all-trades is a Los Angeles native who's been playing music since the age of 10. Judd gigged extensively around the L.A. club scene with his band for about a year at the age of 17 until he decided that it was time for him to go solo. Starr then recorded a solo demo that got much positive feedback and eventually lead to a recording deal offered by JCI Records. It was around this time that Judd began fine-tuning the recording, mixing, and production skills that translated into a few smaller projects for the Leeza show and Playboy Music.

His musical resume is almost as eclectic as his musical voice. He has worked for NBC, (on the award winning show "Starting Over") MTV (provided music for The Real World, Road Rules and The Little Talent Show) and on the set of several movies including: UFO's and the Alien Presence, (1992), Jungle Village Turtle Time (1994), Fairway to Heaven (2007) and many more. With this much experience, it's no wonder that Luminescent hits the mark.

On "Luminescent", Judd Starr successfully fuses alternative rock with subtle elements of country, and electronic music to craft the sound that is getting him much critical acclaim. MTV Music Coordinator, Carrie Hughes, says, “Judd has the ability to span all genres and his music captures the emotions we all feel but can’t always express.” Starr proves in Luminescent that he can do anything – from playing all of the instruments on the album and producing the disc to doing the photography!

Judd Starr is definitely a great illustration of the DIY musician mantra of today. Luminescent displays Starr's versatility as a multi-instrumentalist by completely changing his tone and approach to fit the different styles of songs on the album. Judd sings soulful ballads reminiscent of a young STEVE WINWOOD with the presence and conviction of JOHN WAITE that is brought out by his background vocals (also done entirely by Judd.) The album is a small chest of pop gems that blend smooth vocals and sensible, catchy beats that are accentuated by Judd’s crisp production. - Review by Maria DeFelice / Powderfinger Pub.

Since this review, the video for "Firefly" has been in YouTube's Top 100 Most Viewed music videos and the #17 Most Linked video its first week online. The single went to #8 in a 200+ commercial radio market and was added to 100 college stations across the country. The entire CD was licensed by MTV Networks for use on MTV, VH1, Spike TV, Nickelodeon and others. Additionally, in 2008, Judd Starr was the only musician (1 of 3 people) featured and printed in the Disc Makers "My Story" section of their catalog. This catalog is distributed to 8 million subscribers annually. Judd's "My Story" is also featured on their website. Disc Makers is one of the largest independent music manufacturers in the U.S.

Loved this Music
Very Melodic, up-tempo music. Loved Starting Over & May 22. The Letter is very jazzy.

Chris M.

Great songwriting
Judd obviously knows how to write songs. Catchy, great production. Love the whole CD, and that's rare.

A True "Starr"
Every track on Luminescent shows Judd Starr's talent and creative energy. He is a natural and you can't get enough of the music. He grabs your emotions and holds you there! A Creative Genious indeed! A Bright Shining "Starr". You HAVE to get this CD!

Anthony M. Judith

One of the best "new" albums I've heard.
The "Illuminicent" album by Judd Starr is great. Great songs, lyrics, instruments...I really vibe the mellow-effortless style. Kinda reminds me of Cause n Effect in the late 90's but better. There's a hint of country in the harmonies sometimes which is kinda cool. Also has a slight guitar-synth new-wave feel but in modern day. A+

OLIA

Artistic 'LUMINESCENT'
Great music, full of vital energy! 'May 22nd', 'Anything' and 'Firefly' are my favourite although the whole CD is very tuneful and inclines to optimistic thoughts.
Special thanks to CD Baby!
