Real Name:
Josh Karp
Budo is Josh Karp, a Seattle-born, Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist, composer, recording artist, producer, and touring musician. Raised on a steady diet of Sam Cooke, Miles Davis, Emmylou Harris, and Howlin' Wolf, he manages to combine an incredible array of disparate influences to create a unique tapestry of textures, rhythms, and sounds that add a new dimension to just about everything he touches. His most recent effort is his very first solo record, One Bird On a Wire. With a style that owes just as much to Jon Brion as it does J Dilla, Budo is carving out an impressive niche in today's music industry. From production work for some of the Hip-Hop industry's most widely respected and renowned artists, to movie scoring, to his own solo projects, to his relentless touring schedule with Grieves, Budo is a force to be reckoned with, and certainly an artist to look out for in the coming years.
