Soul Funk'n Blues
Simple and Down to Earth are the sounds of Buddy Duke (Chris).
The name "Buddy Duke," was created from his grandfather Jack calling him, "his buddy," and Chris' best mate, a black lab, 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 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.
Peace, my dude.
