Here’s what the major music business players are saying

“Jud brings so much to the table as a producer and songwriter.  He definitely pushed me outside of my comfort zone, which is one of the things I love about him the most.  He’s a great coach!  I look forward to working with him again in the near future.  I have a lot of respect for him as talent and as a friend.”

–Kimberley LockeAmerican Idol finalist, recording artist, television star

“Creating music with Jud is what I imagine it was like working with George Gershwin or Cole Porter back in the day…totally effortless and endlessly inspiring.  Every little discovery on the road to completing a song is celebrated, every revelation explored.  All in the benefit of creating the most complete musical statement.  He is the ultimate craftsman, able to do it all.  But more than that, he is ruled by his heart, writing from the depths of his soul.  That is why I am so proud of the songs we’ve written together–and why he continues to remain a powerful voice in the modern music world.”

–Dave Kozmulti-platinum recording artist, radio personality, record company owner, entrepreneur

“Jud and I have worked together since the beginning of our respective careers.  He’s actually one of the first songwriters that peermusic signed after I started with the firm.  The man knows how to write hit songs!  In fact, he should give lessons on the perfect structure of writing pop hits. On top of his creative talent, he has a wicked intelligence and a great sense of humor.  And here’s a hint on how to get on his good side…take him to the movies and buy him lots of popcorn.  He’s crazy for both.”

–Kathy SpanbergerPresident and Chief Operating Officer, peermusic

“What can I say about Jud Friedman?  Jud has been my writing partner for 22 years. I think that says it all!  He is a triple threat.  He writes inspirational melodies that move and touch you.  He can knock out a lyric with the best of them, and he can produce the tracks as well.  He’s equally dedicated to pitching the songs and he’s like a brother to me. How can you beat that!  There’s nobody else I’d rather have my hits with than him.”

–Allan Richmultiple Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globe nominated hit songwriter

“Jud has a natural gift for bringing out the best in the people he works with.  The results are songs that can become classic hits.  I’m proud to call him my friend, and honored to be one of his collaborators.”

–Michael Jayhit songwriter (Eminem’s “Like Toy Soldiers” and many others)

Jud has guided me with his musicianship, intellect, years of experience in the industry, and genuine desire for me to succeed.  It is an honor to work with a Grammy, Golden Globe, and Oscar-nominated songwriter who just happens to be down-to earth and considerate.”

“Working with Jud was such a great experience.  He was very patient and really took the time to get terrific vocals out of me on all three songs we did together.  Jud helped me to define my musical style and the final mixes sounded incredible.  I can’t wait to work with him again soon!”
