Rudge, Joe

Music Supervisor, Search Party Music

After seeing his first Kiss Army concert in 1978, Joe Rudge was hell-bent on a career in music. His father, tour manager for The Rolling Stones and Lynyrd Skynyrd, took Joe on the road throughout the late seventies, kindling a life-long interest in the music and entertainment industry. Joe started as a production assistant at VH1, but soon moved on to music supervision when he was hired to music supervise for The Disney Channel. 2006 was a breakthrough year for Joe when he music-supervised the cult hit BRICK for Focus Features and the ABC shows LOST and SIX DEGREES through the music supervision company Search Party Music. Joe’s recent film credits include ROMAN POLANSKI: WANTED AND DESIRED for Think/HBO Films, the Paul Dano & Zooey Deschanel film GIGANTIC, and the Alexis Bledel film THE GOOD GUY. Joe’s most recent films include BLUE VALENTINE starring Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams and TWELVE for director Joel Schumacher. Currently he’s music supervising Wayne Wang’s SNOW FLOW AND THE SECRET FAN for Fox Searchlight and Aza Jacob’s TERRI for ATO Films. In addition to film and television, Joe also music-supervised a number of commercials with Search Party Music.
