It is no surprise that with a name like "Maverick", that 25 year-old pop artist Maverick Judson from the small town of Emo, Ontario doesn't have any trouble standing out in a crowd and being different.
Judson's passion for music began when he was 12 years old with his father's neglected electric guitar collecting dust. Not only did he play it for hours on end to tick off his parents, but also with a hope that one day he would play in front of a raging crowd... Judson claims to always have had a vision, and although blurry at times, says it seems to be getting clearer and clearer as he continues to grind his way onto the Northwestern Ontario airwaves with his refreshing blend of pop, r&b/soul and dance.
Dancing, strumming and belting his way into people's heads is Judson with catchy and enlightening, clean singles such as "My Girl" featuring Joey Burnz of Burnz N' Hell and "Here To Stay" (winning the Nashville Songwriting Competition's Director's Award in 2014). Yet even his earlier work with "You" (2009) earned Judson an all time physical sales high of 900+ units sold in the first 2 weeks after release. Times seems to be tougher, but un-phased by the challenges of the new age music industry, Judson pushes forward, continually releasing video singles, earning spots on Acadia Broadcasting radio stations across Ontario, including "B93 The Border" (Fort Frances), Kenora's "The Lake", Thunder Bay's "Magic 99", London's "106 The X", and "FM 96" (London). In 2011, Judson's hard work won him London, Ontario's "Pop Artist of the Year" award and also a spot opening the stage for the infamous Swollen Members.
What's more about Judson is not so much his accomplishments, but what he plans to accomplish in the years to come. Talks of an album featuring new banging singles such as "Can't Shake It" and "Bright Lights" in 2014 are just the brink. Since a sudden spark from a contest win and a deal signing with an up and coming dance music label in Miami, FL in late 2013, the emails are flooding in and the opportunities are piling up. The best is yet to come.
