BadMoodRude is the dreamy, honest songwriter that you deserve to be listening to. The New York-based artist began her musical journey only a year ago but has quickly developed a passionate, diehard fanbase (31k on Instagram, 163k on TikTok) after releasing a number of honest, quirky singles that range in style from droning emo trap to lighthearted synth-pop.
Born and raised in Rochester, New York, Rude was exposed to a number of genres throughout her childhood (from
) thanks to parents who were highly supportive of the city's local melting pot of a music scene. She began her music career in marketing for a local concert promoter but doubled down on her own talent when her late grandmother encouraged her to continue finding her voice and become famous. Following her untimely passing, Rude began to develop into singer/songwriter you see today with offerings like “Bigger” (231k Spotify), “U Must H8 Me” (211k Spotify) and “If I Make You Sad” (202k Spotify)
Rude is looking forward to performing (for the first time), strengthening her connection with her audience in the new year and dropping a number of releases including collaborations with the likes of German rapper Kaiba, R I L E Y and Lil Peep-collaborator and producer mysticphonk. Keep up with her dog, her spirit dolls and her music @badmoodrude.
