Live in the Gershwin Room with DJ Matt Radovich. All the way from Detroit, soul/funk musician Amp Fiddler makes their way to The Espy this March.
Detroit based Amp Fiddler is a celebrated soul/funk musician who has shared stages and studios with everyone from Prince and George Clinton to Primal Scream and underground Detroit producer Moodyman. Amp also played a pivotal role in bringing Slum Village to global attention, and was a friend and collaborator with their producer, the late J Dilla. His warm, expansive mellifluous music takes stylistic cues from all these encounters, but emerges as earthy, supremely relaxed, and rooted in the funk and soul that Amp feels most connected to. And, as he suggests, it is music for the head as much as food for the heart and soul.
With his diverse and abstract relationship with music, the cosmos and everything, Amp’s love of electronica remained strong and the culmination of these forces has led to not one, but a two album project that highlights Amp’s talents in all arenas.
