** BBC RADIO 1 PLAYLISTING OF THE JUDE WITH AIRPLAY FROM: FEARNE COTTON, SCOTT MILLS, EDITH BOWMAN, HUW STEPHENS, NICK GRIMSHAW, ANNIE MAC, DEV, & GREG JAMES – THE JUDE “LES FILLES FRANCAISES”
The Jude are a London-based rock ‘n’ roll band who describe their sound as “vicious skiffle” – punchy, energetic music to get you dancing. Frontman Gav’s powerful Irish vocals soar over a jerky British rock ‘n’ roll sound – giving an all-round London vibe. New single ‘Heartbreaker’ is the final installment of their Unsigned Trilogy, all with 1950s themed artwork and a strong narrative story running throughout the releases.
Throughout the releases of the Unsigned Trilogy, The Jude have received outstanding recognition from XFM playlists, BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq and BBC Radio London’s Gary Crowley. Last single ‘Les Filles Francaises’ was BBC Radio 1 playlisted, on NME TV, made Record of the Day and featured in Music Week Presents which lead to an A&G sync partnership. This partnership turned into a sync deal with Coca Cola for “Les Filles Francaises” with the song featuring in an advert
The energy in The Jude’s music transmits amazingly live; having played festivals such as Standon Calling, Friends of Mine, Boardmasters, the Station Sessions and Lodestar. They have played alongside The Cribs, Black Lips, Tini Tempah, and Plan B amongst others.

“Songs that catch you from the get go and keep you coming back for more. It’s ‘vicious skiffle’, it’s fresh and it’s ready to change the face of rock ‘n’ roll. 13/13”
