Fond of Rudy are an indie-pop 4 piece band. The songs are developed from a heartfelt core, washed with stylistic references from 80s icons and revived to a state of modernity through contemporary production. The music attempts to encapsulate a feeling, an emotion, or a state of mind rather than simply a mindful melody.
The bands tracks have been sourced by national radio, including plays on BBC Introducing London (Gary Crowley), BBC 6 Music / BBC Introducing Mixtape (Tom Robnison), Amazing Radio (Shell Zenner, Charlie Ashcroft). Being featured on a number of international Hype Machine certified blogs and curated Spotify playlists helped the band secure slots at The Great Escape, Blissfields, Brownstock and Leefest.
It seems their success so far has been in part down to having the right music at the right time – a point further proved when earlier this year they caught the ear of the organisers of Canadian Music Week and secured a showcase for the festival, which was funded by the International Showcase Fund - PRS For Music Foundation.
They have also had high demand on their streaming platforms for recent releases over the past year, with Spotify, Soundcloud and Apple Music racking up over 200,000 plays.
