A clairvoyant at heart, a couture pop artist in the mind, and a Texas native from birth, J.W. CUDD is the spectrum of creativity in entertainment—encompassing music, art, and film.
After releasing his first single at age sixteen, CUDD became the “Youngest Charted Artist” on The Texas Music Chart. With his second release, “Gold Digger’s Dream,” the song gained national and international success charting in the Top 20 on the European Country Music Association.
CUDD has played arena tours with acts like The Zac Brown Band, Willie Nelson, Little Big Town and more. Most of these being the result from fan-voted contests due to his die hard social media following. CUDD has written and recorded with top-notch songwriters and producers such as MIG (The Chainsmokers, Dua Lipa, Camila Cabello), Andrew Lane (Backstreet Boys, High School Musical, Kelly Rowland), Stacy Barthe (Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus), Victoria Shaw (Garth Brooks, Lady Antebellum, Sara Evans), Gary Burr (Leann Rimes, Kelly Clarkson, Ringo Starr), and more.
CUDD has been a pioneer of social media since the days of Myspace, accumulating countless followers over multiple platforms throughout the years. It’s easy to see why he was voted as “Best Country Music Artist” by the eWorld Music Awards (Paramount) in 2012.
In 2016, CUDD rebranded his image and sound for pop music, having known his true calling. Simultaneously, CUDD created a campaign called, “Open Your Heart,” in conjunction with the National American Heart Association. Proceeds from the song went to the organization for research purposes, and a small tour followed gaining national attention from EXTRA with Mario Lopez, Artist Direct, Baeble, and more.
In J.W. Cudd’s most recently released track, “Make Out” he brings an upbeat tempo and an incredibly catchy rhythm to help showcase his amazing vocals. The song eventually goes into a drop that brings an image of running through the jungle as the wind blows through your hair. You’ll love the way this track’s energy can get you right up, as it can be a great song for working out, and as the world begins to reopen through Corona. Check it out below.

When D.C. venues were ready to reopen after COVID-19, indie pop duo GLOSSER was ready to perform. The two, Riley Fanning and Corbin Sheehan, formed the band pre-COVID out of a shared aesthetic vision and passion for music storytelling.
Their first album *DOWNER* was released in January 2023, however they have decided to release a [__deluxe version__](https://open.spotify.com/album/0KLORhtj3ohV4FtbdjoKu5?si=iNZX9fiZSm2M6V8pRdBkow) exactly one year later containing four new tracks – two remixes, a reimagined song, and a cover – that they are hoping will give it a second life and allow them to continue performing around the area.
The band explains that they have spent many shows opening for touring bands that traveled through D.C. “We made music and then venues started to open again,” Sheehan says. Rather than having the “typical grungy” D.C. band experience, they uniquely went straight to club shows.
