Saint Jude are a London-based[1] rock and soul band fronted by vocalist Lynne Jackaman.

They released their debut Diary Of A Soul Fiend record in September, 2010, which was produced by erstwhile Rolling Stones producer Chris Kimsey.[2] In January, 2010 they were joined on stage by Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood at London's 100 Club.[3]

On 11 December 2011, they were named Classic Rock magazine's "Gig of the Week." They played Germany's legendary Rockpalast venue[4] (which was later broadcast on WDR), Rhythm Festival, Off The Tracks Festival, Cornbury Festival, High Voltage Festival, the UK leg of Sonisphere Festival, and completed a mini tour of the UK in December, finishing with a headline slot at London's Scala venue.[5] They were also nominated Best New Band at the 2011 Classic Rock Roll Of Honour.[6]

In 2012 Saint Jude began writing for their follow-up to 2010's Diary Of A Soul Fiend.[7] On 8 November 2012, they announced a PledgeMusic campaign for an upcoming EP, to be released in February 2013, entitled Ladies & Gents.[8]
