Jude Charles was born in Port-au-Prince (Haiti). He then came to Canada at the age of 4. His father, who is also a musician at heart, gave him private lessons. His father played guitar, clarinet and piano. He pushed him to sing in the church choir until he was 16. Then Jude got interested in trumpet playing, which he played for 3 years. But while playing trumpet he was always playing guitar on the side. On the other hand, he had another hobby that kept him out of trouble: Basket-ball which he played from the age 12 and up. He got accepted in University and this is when he stopped trying to make a professional career out of it.
When he turned 17, he really started to take guitar seriously. He started taking guitar private lessons. Then the tours started piling up at the age of 20. Belgium, Tahiti, France, Martinique, Guadeloupe, Haiti, Miami, New-York, etc... He was studying computer science in University and touring in the same time. He had to make a choice between music and computers. In that same year he started his own band (SOULDOUT). The band lasted 2 years. He played with most of the bands in Montreal (like the groups "ONE" featuring (CORNEILLE) and (GAGE)), (MAGGIE BLANCHARD), (CHOIR OF PROPHECY), (MINISTERIAL CHOIR), (JIREH CHOIR), (EXALTATION), (KAMPESH), (ASOTO), (MANIAK), (NO-DEJA) featuring (BARNEV), (K-DANS), (PASSION KOMPA), etc...). He even played guitar for American gospel sensation Grammy nominated (MARVIN SAPP). Sometimes he would play bass guitar for some gigs. He participated on many albums.
Jude Charles got to the point where, in 2002 he started producing music. He started working for a radio station in Montreal (CKUT 90.3 FM), where he made jingles. He listened to all kind of music like hip hop, techno, alternative rock, pop, Compa, classical, Jazz, R&B, Reggae, Salsa, Blues, heavy metal, hard rock. In the meantime, he also appeared in many videos (K-DANS, PASSION KOMPA, OLIVIER CHEUWA, etc...). In 2005 he also worked with singer (SANDY DUPERVAL) from STAR ACADEMIE, which is a reality TV show in the same category as AMERICAN IDOL, Quebec version. Let’s not forget (SHARON BROOKS) with whom he worked on her radio single.
He managed to put out 3 albums under his own label (HEY JUDE PRODUCTIONS). A lot of them were in the gospel field. There are 3 artists whom he worked with. One of them is (OLIVIER CHEUWA) and the other ones are (GUERDIE & NADEGE) with album LOVER OF MY SOUL. In 2004 he started to go all out. He produced an album called URBANISTIK for (STEEVEK), with whom he got his first single with a video running on (MUSIQUE PLUS). He also produced an album called GHETTO GOSPEL for (GUNDEI). But his latest greatest achievement is his own solo guitar album (MY GUITAR).
In the year of 2006, he produced 6 songs for an alternative rock artist in Brooklyn (New-York). The album is supposed to come out in June 2007. In the same year he managed to produce an artist named MANNIX. His album is also supposed to be out before the end of the year.
