Electrifying audiences nationwide, Snap Judgment is a storytelling phenomenon that delivers a raw, musical brand of narrative. Created by Glynn Washington, produced by WNYC, and launched on NPR stations five years ago, Snap Judgment LIVE features the world’s finest storytellers on stage, backed by the Snap Judgment band. The multi-platform experiences give audiences a glimpse into the life of a stranger through radio, stage, screen and web.

Snap Judgment is heard weekly on over 365 public radios stations, and downloaded over two million times a month. The Atlantic magazine hailed Snap’s Glynn Washington as “the first African American (NPR) host to swing a big cultural stick, the first who seems likely to become a public-radio superstar on the order of Glass or Garrison Keillor . . .”

Before Snap Judgment, Glynn worked as an educator, diplomat, community activist, actor, political strategist, fist-shaker, mountain-hollerer, and foot stomper. Glynn composed music for the Kunst Stoff dance performances in San Francisco, rocked live spoken word poetry in Detroit, joined a band in Indonesia, wrote several screenplays, painted a daring series of self portraits, released a blues album, and thinks his stories are best served with cocktails.

Oakland’s experimental soul group Bells Atlas has joined Snap LIVE! as the new touring house band! In the words of host Glynn Washington, this 4-piece is “made of magic and popsicles”. Blending R&B, post-pop psychedelia, and tropical rhythms among other colorful flavors, Bells Atlas invokes worlds of infectious melodies, riffs, feels and polyrhythms. The group’s live score backdrop brings a unique sound all their own to the Snap stage. You can find their self-titled debut album and Hyperlust EP on Bandcamp, iTunes and Spotify.
