With a voice that has been likened to both Kathy Matea and Jewel, Jude Madill plays and sings with great feel and an equal enthusiasm and love for music. Jude has been singing ‘since forever’ although she has not always performed as a songwriter, she says “For a good part of my life I only sang and played other peoples music – then, quite suddenly, when I was 30-something I started writing songs myself.” Most of Jude’s original music falls somewhere in the folk/alt-country box although her musical inspiration comes from a lot of different genres. Most recently Jude has completed a suite of songs, The Robert Parker Suite, re-telling stories around the life and times of Butch Cassidy. Living in Wellington, Jude plays both solo and in The Madillionaires around the local folk scene.
