A LITTLE ABOUT WAKING JUDE

Hailing from Abbotsford, BC, Waking Jude has been playing shows since it’s formation back in 1999. With years of both singing and playing punk rock under his belt, Derrick Mensch strived for something with a deeper meaning musically, and in turn he picked up an acoustic guitar.He started by playing local shows in basements of houses, coffee shops, parking lots and local venues, but it quickly grew into something bigger. With pop hooks, catchy vocals and the sweet sound of his acoustic guitar, how couldn't it. Waking Jude's first release was in january of 2003 called the Shadows EP of which has sold more than 500 copies. With people still wanting more, an extended reissue will soon be available with 2 brand new songs and some live tracks as well. For a brief while, Waking Jude was on hiatus while he focused oh his other project DS Sutton. They were touring and playing shows relentlessly, thus not allowing for much time to focus on a solo performance. DS Sutton has since passed on, thus the fresh start of Waking Jude. With a new album on the way (due out mid early 2008) plans of taking the world by storm are in order, and he needs your help to help to make this happen. There will be new songs posted on a regular basis and hopefully we won't have to wait to long for our ears to hear the sweet sound of his voice. http://www.myspace.com/wakingjude or http://www.purevolume.com/wakingjude.

A little about The Perfect Hour: http://www.perfecthour.com for more information and how to purchase the cd If history teaches us anything, it is that the music scene goes in cycles. Periods of complacency that leech the creativity of musical artists. But with each low period comes a band or style that awakens the industry from it's slumber and injects new life into it. In the seventies it was punk rock and bands like The Clash and Ramones, the nineties introduced grunge with Pearl Jam leading the way, and now we await the PERFECT HOUR to re-energize a musical scene that is starting to sound repetitious, each band mimicking the sounds of the last. It is the PERFECT HOUR for an act with a mature and different sound to capture the imagination of the listening masses. Strong rhythms, simple, yet catchy melodies, and honest lyrical concepts is what sets the PERFECT HOUR apart from their peers. Embracing individualism, bridging genres and demographics is the goal every time this co-operative team of song writers sit down to express themselves through music. Exciting live shows and thought provoking content are the tools this band will use to lead the music industry into an uncertain era. The music industry is changing, the roles of artists, management, distributors, and agents is evolving. The internet has changed all the rules and made the world a smaller place. Fans of music have exposure to a wider variety of music than ever before. The status quo is no longer good enough. They are waiting for the next musical revolution. They are waiting for the PERFECT HOUR.
