ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
L.A.-based singer-songwriter Jude is back with Sarah, a collection of nine songs that are so great, his former label honchos are probably banging their heads against the wall right now. The album kicks off with the exceptional "Madonna," perfectly showcasing Jude's otherworldly falsetto complemented by understated guitar and gorgeous strings.
His music, while difficult to categorize, will appeal to fans of the emotional nakedness of Damien Rice (sans the histrionic edge), the smart-ass, rapid-fire delivery of Jason Mraz and the melodic sensibility of John Mayer, although Jude's been running his own show since these guys were picking their zits.
While his songwriting is solid as ever (if you have a decent radio station you may be familiar with past gems "Rick James," "I'm Sorry Now" or "King of Yesterday"), the album once again spotlights that voice and his talent of gliding seemingly effortlessly from his lower range to the stratosphere. -AW
Performing Songwriter

"The first thing you notice about Jude's music is, of course, the voice. Resonant and quiet, it has a duality that simultaneously smashes your heart in two at the same time that it lifts you up. There's sadness in his voice, even as he's singing something positive; somehow he's able to convey both ends of the spectrum at once."
"His latest album, a short offering titled, simply, Sarah, is about finding the harmony that exists between the highs and lows of life-both figuratively and literally. The music is lush, but amazingly sparse. The emotion is high, but amazingly restrained. In short, the album is amazing."
Christian Hoopes, UGO.com
" 'You are Madonna, you're lady divine, you are part Mother Theresa and a valentine, some man's pariah and a slippery slope, but to me you are the fire and I fly to my hope.'   In a refrain, Jude reassures all those who had seen in him one of the best songwriters of his generation. Jude is back. And his writing with him.
True nuggets of song-writing gold....One could criticize Sarah for its lack of pop and up-tempo songs (except Crescent Heights). But the pleasure of rediscovering Jude is much more important. 'Isn't it over,' he sings on the last song. No, 100 times no, it's not over. Quite the contrary. It's only just beginning again. For our greater pleasure. "
- Olivier Coombes, Benzine

THANKS GOD, JUDE RETURNS !

I got Jude's last album almost a year ago, and didn't took the time to write a review yet. The song "Sarah" is sublime (words and music), there's those gorgeous harmonies on "you and me" and lovely guitars parts on "black superman"... the all album is just beautiful.
Arnaud.

Perfect. It was everything I have come to love and expect from Jude.
This CD is reminiscent of the "Harper Ave." acoustic sound, and has the gorgeous lyrics and melodies that I have come to know, appreciate, and respect from this talented artist, Jude.

Thomas

Jude's best album!
The album is paired down and simple like Harper Ave. but with a much better production. The songs are as well crafted as "No one is really Beautiful" but more direct and not as over-produced. The paired down songs allow Jude's voice & guitar to take the forefront, and the additional instrumentation is never extraneous and only adds while not distracting from the essence of the songs. Also, I think this album is his most cohesive with all the songs working together well as a whole. It is both catchy/poppy and somber/moody but there is not a huge gap like, for example, "I know" and "Rick James" on NOIRB, which while both amazing songs are worlds apart in mood. I love NOIRB but I like that this album is a little more consistant in atmosphere and overall sound.

Laura

Great CD
This CD shows us yet again what an amazing voice Jude has! Every song is a little bit different, but he shines on each and every one! For any fan of Jude, this is a must have!

Josh

Great New CD from Jude
Jude sounds as good as ever on his new album Sarah.
Now if we could just get him on the road a little more, we'd all be better off.

There's no one like Jude!!!
Got this album for my husband, who is a big Jude fan. We totally love Jude. His style is so fresh, new and real. Jude we sing your praises!

I have always loved Jude's voice, and this cd gives you some powerful vocals. It inspires me as I do my oil painting! But, no matter how good any of his cds are, it still never compares to seeing him play live, that way you see him less polished.

Amazingly Poetic
I saw Jude live at Largo in Los Angeles, and he was impressive. So I decided to pick up this CD, and it has not left my car stereo since. Lyrically this album is pure poetry. Musically, Jude's tenor is just amazing. If you're looking for an artist that's a REAL person and writes what he knows, then Jude is the guy for you!

CDBaby's crowning achievement. Saving Jude from the record companies. The album
I've been waiting for this album for YEARS. Finally, Jude is back to himself with NEW SONGS THAT ARE AMAZING! This is definately on par with No One Is Really Beautiful. Now all I want is a completely acoustic album like his first, and I'll be in heaven!
