Amanda Wilson

Co-Host

Amanda isn't just a wife and mother. Impressively, she can also manage to forget what she was about to Google in the time it takes her to unlock her phone, is a very bad cook, and can only do impressions of people if she's singing. When she's not performing any of those mind-blowing skills you can find her playing cribbage on her phone, making up poop-related songs about her child, or working in VO.

Co-Host

Before becoming Fawkes' number 1 fan, Kevin considered himself only an enthusiast of disc golf, being outside, and a solid IPA. When he's not developing elaborate HP conspiracy theories and hypothetical fanfics, you can find him falling asleep in front of the TV and snuggling his wife, his child, and both of his cats. Usually at the same time.

Composer

Composer

Judson Hurd grew up in the beautiful country of Paraguay. His first 'teacher' was an old instrumental piano cassette a missionary couple left after leaving the country. The expressive, folk, piano vibrations of Philip Aaberg (Judson's childhood idol) and the simple, romantic Latin culture had a creative impact on his music.

Judson now resides in Wilmington, North Carolina. His music has reached over 2,000,000 views on YouTube. He writes music for radio, TV, including companies Android, Jaguar, Land Rover, the Oprah Show, PBS, recorded countless session work, and has opened for Gavin Degraw, Five For Fighting, Building 429, and many others. He made his Carnegie Hall debut in October 2015.
