New Music – Saint Jude

A week after seeing the great Maggie Bell in concert into my inbox pops information on a great new group with the soul of Stone The Crows…..meet Saint Jude true serendipity!

Not to be mixed up with the US Hardcore Metal band of the same name this group have only relatively recently been signed to a record label and have now released their album, produced by Chris Kimsey, “Diary Of A Soul Fiend”

Kimsey who as a record producer, mixer and musician is most famous for having co-produced The Rolling Stones’ Undercover and Steel Wheels albums and being the engineer on their 1971 album Sticky Fingers as well as 1978’s Some Girls and 1980’s Emotional Rescue.

 Therefore as well as working with Peter Frampton (Frampton Comes Alive), Marillion, The Cult, Peter Tosh, The Psychedelic Furs, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, INXS and many more he is to be taken seriously when he compares saint Jude to be akin to “The Faces fronted by Janis Joplin”

The “Janis” in question is Lynne Jackaman who draws her inspiration from her love of Aretha Franklin

Saint Jude were formed back in 2005 when she met up with Adam Greene who was a CBGB scene follower guitarist, thus that background together with Jackaman’s soul influences of Franklin and the great Etta James produced the DNA for the band.

Now a fully grown five piece band having added Joe Glossop (Keyboards), Colin Kellogg (Bass) and Lee Cook (Drums) they have like all great bands fine tuned their material on the road for the last few years supporting along the way the likes of The Waterboys at The Albert Hall where the attracted the attention of Jimmy Page who has talked about undertaking some future production work for them.

Another admirer, unsurprisingly, is Ronnie Wood who has in fact jammed on stage with them as you can see from the audience filmed clip below on The Faces classic “(I Know) I’m Losing You”

Saint Jude are currently on tour in Europe but hopefully will be coming to a venue near you in 2011, in the meantime enjoy this taster from their album.
