The Judes

About: The Judes

Every now and then a band comes along that grabs you by the ears and just makes you listen. One that doesn't sound like just anyone. A band that changes people's perceptions. A band that quite possibly, changes music.

In an age where sampling and digital mixes run rampant, it's refreshing to hear something a little different and less sterile - something that has heart. A return to fun. A return to roots.

This band has a unique presence; that something special that sets them far apart from the everyday songs that bombard us at every turn. It is this simplicity and rawness that takes everyone to that happy place which is linked to fun, good times, and above all an appreciation of great music.


Generation Who is the second studio album released by Canadian rock band The Judes, released on the 11th of November, 2014 in North America, and the UK as well digitally worldwide, and on the 20th of November, 2014 in Japan.

The album marks somewhat of a departure from the bands previous efforts, moving instead towards a darker theme and grittier songs. Although technically the bands second commercially released album,Generation Who was originally intended to be released before “All That Is The Judes”. However, due to the band working with producer David Grahame at the time, the recordings for the “Generation Who” album were abandoned and left in limbo until the band completed work on what was to become "All That Is The Judes".

Steve Morin & The Higgs Boson Project

About: Steve Morin & The Higgs Boson Project

The Higgs Boson. A title not frequently heard of or talked about amongst the masses. The search for "Dark Matter" and "Dark Energy" that make up more than 96% of our universe. It is the undiscovered particle thought to give matter mass. The God Particle! It is also the name I've chosen for this musical endeavor.Thank you for taking the time to visit and I hope you enjoy your stay! About the Guitar....I borrow these lyrics from the song Discovery,by Rush. "Behind my beloved waterfall, in the little room that was hidden beneath the cave, I found it. I brushed away the dust of the years, and picked it up, holding it reverently in my hands. I had no idea what it might be, but it was beautiful" ... ... "I learned to lay my fingers across the wires, and to turn the keys to make them sound differently. As I struck the wires with my other hand, I produced my first harmonious sounds, and soon my own music! How different it could be from the music of the Temples! I can't wait to tell the priests about it! ..." What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it gives forth a sound. It's got wires that vibrate and give music. What can this thing be that I found? See how it sings like a sad heart. And joyously screams out its pain. Sounds that build high like a mountain. Or notes that fall gently like rain. I can't wait to share this new wonder. The people will all see its light. Let them all make their own music. The Priests praise my name on this night. Welcome to The Higgs Boson Project!

Johnny Duhan

About: Johnny Duhan

Johnny Duhan started his career as a fifteen year old front man with Granny’s Intentions, the most popular beat group in Ireland in the 60s. After rousing Dublin with their soul touch, they moved to London, were signed to the prestigious Deram label, enjoyed considerable success and disbanded before Johnny was twenty one. Johnny started writing folk songs, poetry and prose at this stage. In a career spanning 40 years, his greatest achievement is a quartet of epic albums - Just Another Town, To The Light, The Voyage and Flame - which correspond to the four chapters of his lyrical autobiography, TO THE LIGHT. Johnny’s songs are sung worldwide in a variety of languages, thanks to the focus put on them by Christy Moore, The Dubliners, Mary Black and hosts of other Irish and international singers. His song The Voyage has become a modern classic. Christy Moore has termed Johnny “One of our greatest songwriters.” And the late Ronnie Drew described him as “one of my favourite songwriters.” A new album, The Burning Word, has just been released.

Johnny’s journey is set out in a series of albums that portray his life - his Limerick boyhood in JUST ANOTHER TOWN; his tilt for fame and the girl in TO THE LIGHT; his reflections on family life in THE VOYAGE; and his spiritual quest in FLAME. 

“After a number of hard knocks in 2014, I struggled into 2015 with not just a chip on my shoulder but a full beam on my back. One winter morning while carrying this load up an incline in Barna Woods (a place I often stroll through), I found my usual path blocked by a fallen tree, knocked by a storm the night before. Rooted to the spot by the surprise obstacle, I scratched my head glancing around at other smaller trees that had survived the tempest. While making my way around the exposed root structure at the end of the wide trunk I noticed that the bed the tree had grown in was a wide ledge of solid rock, with little or no root room. Examining the roots themselves I saw that the long fibrous tentacles had had to stretch themselves right to the edge of the rock ledge and over it to gain earth support and nourishment to grow. By the great size of the tree, it had been no mean achievement to have flourished and grown for so long. Still thinking of this when I got home from my walk, I jotted an account of my encounter with the tree in my Song Journal, and a few days later a song grew organically from my notes, “The Fallen Tree”. Without strain or effort, other songs started stemming from the same natural source, all related one way or the other to the felled tree, which I began to associate with the proverbial Tree of Life and with my own life history and journey. It took five months to complete the full collection Creation, which I intend releasing as an album in early 2016, to mark the 50th year of my calling in song.  A video of The Fallen Tree made by Tony Walsh & Tocar Media will appear on Youtube prior to the album’s release.  The title song “Creation” will be released as a single on iTunes and other download outlets in September 2015. For further details of the overall work Creation visit my Official website 

Johnny lives in Barna, Galway.

Ari Hest

About: Ari Hest
On his upcoming June 8th release 'Shouts and Whispers', singer-songwriter Ari Hest creates a non-typical collection of tracks that ultimately form a cohesive narrative. With songs of sadness and resignation giving way to lucidity and catharsis, Hest's introspection and intelligence are on display, creating moments of magic within his poetic, spare lyrics and backing them up with his ear for haunting melodies.
Hest conceived half the album as an acoustic set, while the other half took shape via keyboards, as he explains below. 'Shouts and Whispers' begins with the swirling, hypnotic 'Harvest', soon followed by a centerpiece track, the stunning, understated 'Into the Empty White'. 'How We'll Always Be' is perhaps a declaration of giving up the fight, and the melancholy 'No One Can Stay' has an elegant darkness. There's a glimmer of hope within 'Bona Fide', and finally a cathartic yowl as 'After The Thunder' builds to its crescendo.
Hest comments on the process of making the album:
"At first I wanted to write and record some songs where I put the guitar down and focused on keyboards…I've always been into music from Tears For Fears, Peter Gabriel, and Bruce Hornsby, and was excited to experiment in that direction. So I asked my buddy Carl Barc if I could invade his studio for a while to experiment with some ideas on his Juno and CP70 keyboards. I loved creating in a way I hadn't - using those instruments as the backbone of tracks and leaving guitar largely out of it."
"In the middle of working on those songs I began playing solo shows supporting Judy Collins around the U.S. and Europe. Her show and her audience beg for a more acoustically minded set, so I'd go on stage with just a guitar and occasionally play songs that were fresh out of the oven. I enjoyed being able to take a break mentally from what I was doing with Carl. I was able to focus on how I could arrange these other new songs sparsely."
Eventually Hest found the time to record a few of them with the help of producer Matt Pendergast at Q Division Studios in Boston, MA. Then he listened to both projects. "After hearing the two finished batches of songs I saw two distinct themes, not only in a musical sense but also lyrically. The vibe of the keyboard driven tracks is intense. I wrote a lot about the uncertainty of what I do for a living. On the contrary, the acoustic songs come from a place of lucidity. I started thinking it'd be cool to combine the two somehow."
The result is an album that isn't an album in the traditional sense, but it manages to flow like a complete thought.
"I've always been the introspective type. I guess as a singer-songwriter you're gonna have some of that anyway in your makeup. My previous records were inward most of the time, but 'Shouts and Whispers' has another distinct angle, one of understanding the world I live in and embracing how I fit into it a bit easier than I used to."
Hest has released seven albums, three EPs, and "52" in 2008, an innovative project whereby he wrote, recorded and released a new song every Monday for a full year. In addition, Hest is half of the folk pop duo The Open Sea, along with longtime friend Rosi Golan.
His music has been featured on numerous television shows including Private Practice, Army Wives, and One Tree Hill. Recently, Ari's song "The Landlord" appeared in an episode of NPR's "All Things Considered". He's also scored a film called 'Dreamriders,' which won several independent film awards. And throughout his career, he has toured worldwide to support his records, most recently in Germany as well as several European countries, and built the kind of loyal fan base any musician would envy.
While Shouts and Whispers is an excellent indication of what Hest is capable of, his live show may leave even more of an impression. Watching him play, one can't help but be thrust into his world, hanging on every word like a child listening to a ghost story.
