Classic Hard Southern Rock! Hailing from Los Angeles,CA, the quartet formed in 1995 when vocalist/lyricist Todd McTavish met guitarist Lee Jackson and bassist Ryan Rogers through a mutual friend. The guys started writing together and almost immediately sensed a special magic musically between them. Thus began the process of putting Judge Jackson together. The band played the famed LA club circuit for the better part of the nineties and released their self-titled debut in 1998. Their second CD ,8068, was soon to follow to critical praise. Both releases help develop a devoted hardcore fanbase due to strong word of mouth and the buzz of there explosive live shows. The band started to gain more notoriety with a building radio presence, local & regional press and a few national television appearances...the band we're on a roll. After completion of their 3rd CD, One Diamond, a line up change was made within the ranks. Soon after, drummer J.J. Garcia, a friend and fan since their conception joined the fold. Now revitalize and focused, Judge Jackson resumed there mission of bringing the band and it's music to another level. In 2005, One Diamond was re-released through a national distributor and the foursome toured throughout the US to support it. The bands profile was heighten immensely due to the support of various media outlets in touring markets along with a rapidly developing Internet presence. The songs, "Amazing" and "Times Been Changin" from One Diamond received airplay from over 35 radio stations across the country throughout the year!
