Emerging from the nationwide success of winning the 2017 series of The Voice and the release of his debut album Count On Me, Judah Kelly had a realisation that his next step would be a crucial one. Freed of the bright lights and intense scrutiny, Judah knew that his second album was a chance to establish an even stronger musical identity for himself and lay the groundwork for a career playing the music he loves. On Real Good Time he’s comprehensively achieved that goal.
Realising that he needed to lay the foundations for his post-Voice career, Judah set about listening to hundreds of potential songs for Real Good Time. Aware that his unique ability lies in singing and putting his own stamp on other writers’ songs, Judah recalls “listening to lots of songs for hours and hours and waiting for the right ones to hit me.” That commitment has resulted in 13 tracks that run the gamut of human emotion via the heartache of country and the romance of soul music.
From covering Vince Gill and Miley Cyrus on his debut, Judah has cast his net wider on Real Good Time, taking in the strutting honky tonk groove of the Chris Stapleton-penned ‘Ain’t No Thing’ and transforming Ian Moss’ iconic ‘Tucker’s Daughter’ into a heady, bluesy, soul shakedown. The song’s anthemic and infectious chorus will still incite mass sing-alongs but in Judah’s hands the song is also musically recast in a new and irresistible light.
Now it’s time for the public to hear the album LIVE as Judah takes to the road for a series of intimate shows with his band in tow. Fan’s can be treated to not just new material but a slew of Judah’s favourite covers and tracks from his debut album COUNT ON ME.
