On the Loose
Once upon a time a girl of sixteen sat alone in her room at night writing poetry and playing the guitar while her friends hung out or went to parties. She loved this special time to reflect on her teenage emotions. As she grew older this passion for words and music continued, but there are many paths on life's journey: college, work, relationships, hardships, and pleasures. She lived them all until she found her way back to music where she started. Using those experiences, she gives a glimpse of herself. Her keen observations and lyrical sharpness are thoughtful, honest, and direct. Today Jude Mead is a master of lyrics and melody. She is a published writer and has won many awards for her work. Now she has added her own music. Her music weaves together words and chords that find their way into your soul and stay there. Many of her songs offer insight into our own conflicts and relationships. Jude began her return to music singing back up with such bands as Dirty Linda, Out of the Blue, and Rising Tides before deciding to come center stage and follow her dream as singer/songwriter. Lucky for us she took that leap of faith. Her sultry voice and variation in style and pace leave us wanting more and make it worth listening to again and again. You will find yourself singing or humming long after your first taste of the album. Her music stays in your head and captivates your heart. Be ready for the experience. It will take you to the next level. Have a listen and enjoy the lift. You won't be disappointed.
