NED MUDD

“Mudd’s music is a unique combination of jazz, blues, techno and ambient guitar-based instrumentals.” Birmingham Weekly

“The music combines avant-garde jazz with spoken word, and experimental rock and roll. The jazz is played by top-notch musicians. The words are written with just the right language, making it understandable yet humanly poetic, and the experimental rock and roll is wild and raw, yet confined and skillful. These are the qualities in music that make it speak.” Missoulian

“‘The trick is to remain invisible, and act like you know what you’re doing. Fact is, that’s the definition of the American Dream.’ So says Ned Mudd in one song from his THIS IS NOWHERE soundtrack music. Over Midwestern truckstop blues, Mudd croaks out lyrics with a vocal manner reminiscent of Frank Zappa, or Robbie Robertson on a lazy day.” www.flickhead.com
