Brianna Judge is a native of Philadelphia’s Northeast and recent graduate from the Fox School of Business of Temple University. She grew up jamming on guitar with her Dad and is still doing that now. Brianna has been performing at popular venues in Philadelphia since 2011 but the release of her debut album WIDE EYES cements her position in the city’s ever-growing music scene.
Judge’s music is a fresh mix of indie rock delivering a dynamic blend of rhythmic acoustic guitar work, and fat, well rounded electric guitar tones. Her lyrics are all based on personal perspective and address undeniably human encounters with love, anxiety, and heartache.
In addition to writing her own new music, Brianna is currently working with fellow Philly artists Foxtrot and the Get Down and Abi Reimold, contributing her artistic talents to their original music.
The new album WIDE EYES was recorded at Turtle Studios in South Philadelphia and was produced by Ross Bellenoit. The record was released in 2018 on October 24th with a justifiably packed house at Philadelphia’s Johnny Brenda’s.
“Her songs range emotionally from the kiss-off break-up song ‘Decent Excuse;’ to the breezy, thank-God-it's-the-weekend tune ‘Saturday,’ which has a memorable horn part on the recording courtesy of her friends in the South Philly Big Band; to undying dedication to one's friends in ‘I Would Go (Canada Song);’ to the tired, drunk and at-a-crossroads ‘2 a.m.’” -- Brian Bingaman (The Reporter)
