Sidecar Judy was founded in 2015 in Salt Lake City by singer-songwriter Cammi Meitler and composer Randin Graves to bend genres and stir your emotions with unusual musical arrangements and honest songwriting. Each song on their albums Music for Humans and More Music for Humans is different, just as each human is different, but shares a common voice and honest storytelling all humans can relate to. Sidecar Judy's music is indie electro folk rock for human beings.

Bridger Jenkins, a senior in high school, is an outsider with hidden scars and a lifelong dream to see the ocean. Living in poverty, his mother has done everything in her power to give her son a good life, but their world is once again turned upside down when Bridger's abusive stepfather threatens their lives. On the road with only 197 dollars to their name, Bridger and his mother embark on the journey of a lifetime. But a series of obstacles foil their plan and they end up stuck in the middle of nowhere - a small town that will prove to change their destiny.
