Head to the Kopu Station Hotel on Saturday, November 16 to check out the guy affectionately nicknamed “KING JUDAH” by Kelly Rowland and Delta Goodrem.
Judah Kelly is an Australian singer-songwriter best known for winning The Voice Australia in 2017.
Music has always been part of Judah’s life, from performing in front of family in a New Zealand church at the age of four to three stints at Tamworth’s Academy of Country Music and a number of years spent working for others as a live and studio guitarist and bass player. The support of his family through all of those experiences has allowed Judah to follow his passion and achieve success as a musician and singer. “There was always full support from them to follow the music. Even just after high school when I was doing the broke muso thing, my parents never put the pressure on me to do something else and get a ‘real’ job.”
“For me, the main attraction of country music is its authenticity. It’s important to me that everything we recorded was played by a human being.”
Judah’s extraordinary ability as a singer and interpreter of songs is what captured the ears of the judges on The Voice and the support and adulation of the audiences that tuned in and followed his journey through the competition. As his debut showed, his heart lies in the rich blend of country and soul music that he combines so seamlessly. “I grew up listening to Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and The Temptations,” reveals Judah. “Then, when I was 12, I went to my first country music festival and I actually hated it but I met a lady who introduced me to the music of Vince Gill and I thought that if that’s country, I can do country music. From there it just grew into what I do now.”
