Biography

(1997 – present)

Biography :

Jude, (born Michael Jude Christodal on October 16, 1969 in Massachusetts), is an American singer and songwriter. His music ranges from acoustic to pop, featuring poetic lyrics, Beatles-esque melodies, and memorable vocals. Although a very charismatic performer, Jude is considered a cult-figure/songwriter in the U.S, despite a large following in France.

Jude’s debut album, 430 N. Harper Ave was released independently by the Fish of Death label in 1997. This caught the attention of Madonna’s record label, Maverick, who signed Jude and released his second album, No One Is Really Beautiful - which contained several re-recordings of some of the debut album’s tracks. Jude enjoyed a short-lived radio term on select stations throughout the US, featuring two tracks from No One is Really Beautiful, “I’m Sorry Now” (#33 Billboard Adult Top 40 Chart) and “Rick James” (#29 Billboard Adult Top 40 Chart, #28 Billboard Modern Rock Chart).

Jude first brushed with wide acclaim when his song, “I Know” was featured on the multi-platinum “City of Angels” soundtrack, which hit #1 on the U.S. Billboard Chart, selling over five million copies in the U.S. alone. The song “I Do” from No One Is Really Beautiful was used in several television shows and is a fan favorite (and features on the first three of Jude’s albums in various incarnations). During this time, Jude also toured with Ben Folds Five, Tori Amos and Chris Isaak.
