We are happy to present to you very talented Parisian Pan European Recording artist Judah Warsky. Find out more about him in the interview below, watch his videos, listen to his fantastic tunes and grab his album “Bruxelles” here!
My name is Mathieu Warsky but you might know me as Judah Warsky. I was born in the suburbs and grew up in the nineties. When I was a child my idol was French singer Renaud, because he used curse words in his lyrics. When I was seventeen, I started recording songs on a 4-tracks. It was then when I realised that it was my favorite thing to do and decided to never stop doing it. Since then I signed on Pan European Recording and released albums.
One of my best gigs I played was with my men Koudlam and Flavien Berger. It was so much fun doing the song “Bruxelles” for the very first time and in the very city that had inspired it.
One of the best gigs I have been to was Jonathan Richman. I loved everything about it, he is the best.
Now I live in Paris with my family. In my house you can find LPs everywhere and my refrigerator is usually full with cheese. I enjoy making music and reading a lot. I can spend hours working on a song without eating. One of my favorite places to visit is Buenos Aires, because of the people, the food, the memories.
On weekdays I take my kid to school and on weekends I usually don’t.
My favorite song at the moment is “Te Recuerdo Amanda” by Victor Jara. A film I watched lately and really liked was “To live and die in LA”. The last series I watched and loved was Seinfeld. I don’t really watch series.
I am very inspired by my dreams. My dream is to remember all my dreams.. My worst nightmare is something involving Bob from Twin Peaks..
I love my wife and hate when she’s away. I am addicted to cigarettes, I just cannot stop smoking. I get totally fucked up, when I start drinking shit and forget I hadn’t eaten. The next day I need to eat. A lot.
Local Suicide reminds me of Chris & Cosey.
Tomorrow I plan to not do anything at all, all day. Next month I’ll keep on working on some new songs. Next year I’ll release them. In 10 years I hope I’ll have some hair left.
If I wasn’t a self-involved egomaniac, I would be a nicer person.
If my life was a Hollywood movie, Walter Matthau would have the main role, because he’s my favorite actor. If I could have sex with anyone, it would be Aphrodite.
If I was a car, I would be a saying “This is how I roll” all the time. If I was an animal, I would be a cat living with humans. If I was a drug I would be hash. If I was an invention, I would be YouTube. If I was an object, I would be a kaleidoscope. If I could date myself, I ‘m not sure I would wanna.
If I could play with anyone it would be Charles Mingus. I would like to collaborate with Dave Fridmann.
If I had only one wish, it would be to have a voice in my head always making the right decision.
I would never go to Berlin and not say hi to you in person, because I really enjoyed answering this questionnaire.
My word of advice to the reader would be to turn off your computer for a while and see what happens.
