About

Hello! My name is Judah and I love making music! I have been writing songs since I was about 10 years old when I started banging on our old piano. Not long after that my big bro got me into recording music on my computer and using synthesizers. I remember telling him when I was eight or nine years old, "I love listening to beautiful music!"; and that is what I hope that I can share with you--beautiful music. I make music from my heart, and it brings me a lot of joy to see how it reaches others.

A surprising fact to some, my main inspiration for writing comes from SNES-era RPG game soundtracks. Those Japanese composers wrote some of the most beautiful music that I have ever heard. My style reflects theirs in it's atmosphere and in it's strong sense of theme.

Many of my piano solo pieces reflect the feelings I got when I would set my controller down and let my game character just sit idle in a town or on a mountain just so I could listen to the music longer. I want to make music like that--music that communicates what so many people these days need to hear, "You can rest now."
