Saratoga to LA to Bravo

jes hudakSaratoga Springs native Jes Hudak will be a contestant on Platinum Hit, a new Bravo competition show for singer/songwriters. Here's Hudak's bio from the show site:

Growing up in a small town, Jes Hudak was an awkward adolescent who struggled to feel comfortable in her own skin. She grew up listening to her mom's massive record collection and discovered her talent as a singer/songwriter after attending a local open mic night in her hometown. Hudak cut her first album at the age of 14 and has never looked back. She is a natural performer having toured with top-selling artists Maroon 5 and Enrique Iglesias. She is hoping her innocence and quirkiness will set her apart in the competition.

That local open mic night the bio refers was at Caffe Lena. She's since moved to LA, performed with a bunch of national acts, and won a handful of awards.

(You might remember her from her great cover of T.I.'s "Whatever You Like" that we posted last year.)

The first episode of Platinum Hit is Monday night May 30.* It's hosted Jewel (we can only hope one of the episodes involves her singing karaoke). Former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi is also a judge.

Definitely needs a mural. Another spot that is begging for one is the Delaware Ave Price Chopper in Albany. The side along Elm St is a huge gray wall that takes up most of the block!
