Buddy Duke

Soul Funk'n Blues

Simple and Down to Earth are the sounds of Buddy Duke .

The name "Buddy Duke," was created from his grandfather Jack calling him, "his buddy" and his best mate, a black Labrador Retriever, named "Duke." This is how he honors them both.

Using a loop pedal, he  creates live, not prerecorded, "simple" layers of groovy loops. His objective is to send folks into a subtle trance of tranquility and peace.

"I want kids/adults to not look in awe of my songwriting (loops), but as a springboard to understand that anyone can create music and that it is very liberating to share your soul with the world." - Buddy Duke

He moved to Philly, in 2016, to pursue music from Stratford, NJ, and played the bar scene. 

In 2019, he moved to Arizona to continue the pursuit of a touring musician.

He has released EPS, live albums, and demo albums and plan on releasing more this year.
