* * * * * Reinventing Jude – Shoulder Season * * * * *
Fronted by extraordinary and prolific songwriter, Jude Gonzalez, Reinventing Jude is a Soul – Funk – Indie – Pop Band that is making waves in North Texas. Comprised of an extremely talented ensemble that includes backbeat drummer – Yun Kim, bassist – Emsy Robinson, and trombonist and keys player – Gaika James, Reinventing Jude is a powerhouse of great songs and unforgettable live music shows.
“As a vocalist and a songwriter, frontwoman Jude Gonzalez can connect through sheer force of personality onstage. One woman in the audience was moved to tears, and while Occam’s razor suggests that that was at least partly because of the alcohol, the music was a moving experience even for those of us who were stone sober.
Reinventing Jude has a new album due out, with a release party to be held Sept. 30, and while most local musicians I talk to play the “I’m just in it for the fun” card (when we know they dream of rock stardom), Gonzalez wants a world tour and radio play. She is positively outraged that people in Dallas worship Kelly Clarkson while songwriters of more substance go unnoticed. I can’t say she doesn’t have a point. When she launches her world tour (and it’s hard not to believe her), she plans to take the Neptune Locals with her.” -Steve Watkins dfw.com
In the light of slowing down on the ambient and dark atmospheres here goes a light one but nice indie-pop listen you might want to have a go. The BandCamp page is set on a fixed price but do check it out though. Laid back tunes with front line female vocalist.
