It was great working with Chad. I loved the song I work on! I would definitely work with him again. Highly recommend.
Chad is a musician’s, musician. He has impeccable taste and feel, deep and diverse musical influences, and all the chops to elevate any idea you have to levels you can’t imagine. He is professional, humble, and kind.
I’m a singer / songwriter / producer and I’ve hired Chad on multiple occasions. He always knocks it out of the park and would be the perfect addition to any project.
CHAD IS THE MAN FOR ALL MY LIVE & STUDIO PERFORMANCES
Chad is probably the most versatile musician I know. He will take your ideas and make them better. I honestly can’t recommend him enough.
Chad is truly one of the best musicians I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Phenomenal guitarist, Michael McDonald-like power BGVs, and musicianship that’s out of this world. From RnB and funk to country and straight shredding, he can do all of it.... with taste! I’d never produce a track with out Chad Judd’s fingerprints on it!
I'm a producer for 3rd Lion in Nashville, TN and play bass guitar on the road for Riley Green. Over the past several years I have relied heavily on Chad for almost 100% of all my guitar work. He's not only quick, professional and outstanding but does it with the best attitude and just leaves you wanting to hire him again and again. Chad is also versatile in any genre. He's the best!
