Judah Shadrach Set To Release A New Visual Soon

Published

on

Judah Shadrach Peters knows his name packs a punch. The name, given to him by his mother, has deep religious roots, with Judah meaning “praised” and Shadrach meaning “command of Aku” (“command of God”). Teased for it in his youth, it wasn’t until Judah Shadrach was much older when he realized his name’s true power and impact. With the release of his first album Gravity, the up-and-coming artist is on the rise, striking his listeners in the same way– powerfully and impactfully. 

Born in San Antonio and raised in Kissimmee, Florida, Judah Shadrach began making music at 12 years old as a hobby between him and his friends. His talent and passion for football landed him a scholarship at Arizona Western and brought him to Orlando, where he played in college, penned football-themed songs on the side, and owned his own security company. Through this time, he proceeded to indulge in his love for music as a way of coping with the loss of close family and friends, including his brother, who was shot and killed on Judah Shadrach’s birthday in 2015, and the arrest of his cousin; however, it wasn’t until his cousin XAN first heard his music that the artist began turning his love for the craft into a career. The rest, he says, is history. 

As a musician, Judah Shadrach’s sound is unique, shaped by his Jamaican heritage, his upbringing in Orlando, and his love for all music but especially hip-hop and reggae, naming Lil Wayne, Jeezy, and Bouju Banton as some of his greatest inspirations. He recorded his first record, “Cocaine Dreamz”, in 2013 and 2014 while on break from college, but the journey since then wasn’t always so steady. In 2019, Judah Shadrach co-wrote a song with Swave on Tee Grizzley’s album “Locked Up” and was given no credits. He took a break from the craft that year, grappling with the decision to give it up entirely until XAN moved out to Orlando. Often compared to Pop Smoke and the “Hood Drake”, Judah Shadrach has now added his 2019 album “Gravity” and latest release “The League” featuring Wavo to his growing repertoire, and has performed at various shows with a list of other artists, including his 2016 performance with King MIZ and XAN at the Mercury Ballroom in Louisville, Kentucky; his 2021 Pro Bowl Performance; and his opening performances for Troy Ave, Lil Uzi Vert, and Bryson Tiller. 

As an artist who writes all of his lyrics, Judah Shadrach describes his style as laid back and easygoing. He cites music as a way for him to express his emotions, and he aims to deliver conscious and relevant music to his fans. He believes that stories told through music can touch people in an especially deep and meaningful way, hoping that when his fans tune in, they can tap into his story and find strength in their own. That’s Judah Shadrach’s goal through and through– to inspire, and to speak to new and old generations alike. His music speaks to that objective. After the release of his first full project “Gravity” in 2019, he is now working on a mixtape to be released this fall, and with the release of his newest record, “The League”, a song inspired by one of his close friends who passed as a result of gun violence, it is clear that his roots and story remain tethered to that drive. Through music, Judah Shadrach pushes to pay homage to the greats that came before him, and to give back to Orlando and its youth. He attributes this drive to his larger community and family, his primary source of motivation. “My family believe in me so hard and so much,” he says. “They wouldn’t let me give up, even when I wanted to.” 

With his passion for storytelling, unflinching drive, and family by his side, his fans can rest assured that they have someone real– someone who is just like them. “I always treat people the way I want to be treated,” he says. “I like my fans to know that I am someone that will support them the same way they support me.” While he never wants to rush to put out work, he aims to release more music and videos, and his insistence to stay grounded is what will continue to set him apart from the rest. “There is a lot of fake BS and gimmicks,” he says. “I don’t care about chains or grills– can’t wear it, so it’s not needed.” For Judah Shadrach, everything lies in the music, and he plans for it to stay that way. With his upcoming project and newest record “The League”, out now on all streaming sites, it’s only up from here for Judah Shadrach Peters– in power, in impact, and in his unrelenting authenticity.

Published

on

Southern California native Jeda Voice is bringing edgy to R&B! The up-and-coming artist fell in love with music at a very young age and although he recorded his first record at the age of 14, his passion for it started way before that. “I wrote my first poem in elementary school,” he says. “After that, my grandma had a big stereo tape player, and as kids, we would play around. I pressed play by mistake, and Jodeci came on. That’s when I fell in love with the art of music.”

With over 1 million streams on Soundcloud, fans are loving Jeda’s distinct and edgy R&B style – or as he calls it “alternative R&B.” Nevertheless, the singer always knew that music was his calling. “Music has this deep soul tie with me. I believe it chose me and we all have choices and my choice is to use my gift the best way possible.” Even when others doubted him, Jeda did not give up. “In the beginning I was told that I couldn’t do it, I was told I wasn’t good enough, people literally laughed at me in the studio,” he says. Having been through the setbacks and negativity, the singer claims he makes music for “the lovers, the underdogs, the rejected ones, the ones that people envy and the ones that people hurt.”

As he continues to work on his craft, Jeda is also looking to dabble into the business world. For now, the rising R&B singer is focused on releasing new music in 2022, and he is currently working on his short film/music video for his single “Purple Rain Pt 2”.
