Gospel Music can become a bit formulaic in sound and songwriting and then breaths of fresh air come around like Jonathan McReynolds, Gary Mayes and Nu Era and now, Judah Band. Judah Band offers something new with their sound, style of dress and even just how they see things. The Stellar Awards happened earlier in the year and although they were nominated for a few awards, Judah Band came up empty. Instead of sulking and wallowing in the disappointment of losing, Randy Weston, leader of the Judah Band posted this quote on their Instagram: “Man, God is amazing. We did not win any of the three Stellars we were nominated for, but why do I still feel like WE WON! #morethanieverexpected #hushwatchGod”.
It seems as if the eOne Entertainment signed group had more doors opened, were able to enjoy the company of other artists and were flat out refreshed.
So, who is Judah Band?
The group is a mix of eclectic singers and musicians committed to glorifying God through reaching souls for Christ, encouraging others, etc. We wanted to highlight just a few of their songs and videos just to give a taste of what this group can do musically. Enjoy getting to know Judah Band!
"God Can" “God Can,” from their The Return of Glory album is a midtempo “poppy” tune chalked with guitar riffs, tight harmonies, and overall goodness.
“Up N’ Praise Him” Judah Band definitely gained some buzz with the churchy “Up N’ Praise Him.” The music video is a theatrical throwback to black and white films, knickerbockers, big bands, and top hats.
“For My Good” Although “For My Good” has that “pick ‘em up and put ‘em” down” shouting tempo that we know and love, it still has somewhat of a different vibe to it. The lead and background vocals are very tame while the harmony is smooth yet subtle. The video adds to the quirkiness and brings a fun element.
