Judith Ude *(pronounced 'Ooh-day'). Instagram: @judith_ude I am an unsigned Nottingham-born, Leicestershire based singer-songwriter-harpist-producer. I write, record and produce all my own music using layered vocal loops, celtic harp and original samples. My African heritage & my love of classical music blend with the experimental and soulful to create my unique sound, whilst lyrically, I write about love, hope and life experiences. As a black female harpist, I am proud to create and share music that overturns stereotypes by mixing a traditional instrument with non traditional textures. As I grow and change each day & things grow and change around me, musically, I’m always trying to sound more like myself & stay true to whomever that might be in the moment. Through Dean Jackson on BBC Introducing in the East Midlands, I've had plays on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio Wales, BBC Radio Leicester & BBC Radio Nottingham. I've also played Dot to Dot Festival, Latitude Festival, De Montfort Hall, and most recently, BBC Airwaves!
