      Justin Jude's Storytellers Series
      w/Jonah Luke

        Edgefield Winery |
        Saturday, June 9

        Justin Jude performs his own elegant folk-pop and hosts a different singer-songwriter every second Saturday of the month In the Edgefield Winery.

        In the crowded field of singer-songwriters, Justin Jude sets himself apart with poetic lyrics, elegant arrangements and a voice that goes straight to the heart. Jude has won multiple songwriting and performance awards, including "Oregon's Best Singer-Songwriter 2007" (Bite of Oregon ) and "Finalist, Portland Songwriter of the Year." Portland Monthly writes: "Jude distinguishes himself with earnest prose, elegantly simple arrangements, and a sentimental voice that transcends."

        His new album 5 Kinds of Rain features five songs stripped to their basic elements: voice, guitar and story. The new record has earned comparisons to Paul Simon and Rufus Wainwright. Jude has shared the stage with acts including Lisa Loeb, Lucy Kaplansky, Erin McKeown and Portland's own Quarterflash. About w/Jonah Luke

        Jonah Luke is a singer/songwriter/musician hailing from Portland, OR who plays playful folk-rock with a dash of a cappella and a pinch of sweet harmonies.  He is also a recording engineer, producer, and lover of big cities.

        Jonah’s debut, the I Don’t Need You To Know EP, was recorded by Jonah in his college dorm room and self-released to a small but loyal fan base in Portland and Chicago.  The title track explores Jonah’s love of a cappella and folk music, blending the two styles to create many different sounds with only a guitar, a few shakers, and the human voice.  Other songs in the album include Almost Gone and Something Left To Do Here, call-to-action songs written after his experience studying in the Dominican Republic.

        Growing up on Chicago’s North Side, he was fed a healthy diet of Funk, Cajun, and Paul Simon’s Graceland album, and learned to sing and play drums, guitar, piano, and trombone. Jonah started playing in a Cajun/Zydeco band at age 11 and has since been in 4 Rock/Folk bands, 2 orchestras, an a cappella group, and a trombone choir.

        At 22 years of age, Jonah has played at some of Chicago’s premiere music venues (Millennium Park, The Metro) and participated in 16 studio albums, including 2 with producer Brian Deck. In 2007 his band The Audians was played on Chicago’s XRT radio.

        Recently, Jonah has graced the stage of Portland’s Crystal Ballroom, and opened for renowned singer/songwriter Joe Purdy as well as Portland’s Chris Robley & The Fear of Heights.  He graduated from Lewis & Clark College in Portland in May 2011.  An instrumental piece he composed and recorded appeared in a commercial for Dannon in Super Bowl XLVI.
