This event is all ages
The Finger and The Moon represents the beginning of a new chapter from this multi-talented musician, producer, and performer. Budo, well known for his production and performance work with underground hip-hop luminaries including Macklemore, Grieves, Slug (Atmosphere), Mr. Lif, Cunninlynguists, is stepping out from behind the boards and moving into a sonic world entirely of his own creation.
Worn down from 4 relentless years on the road and in the studio with Rhymesayers recording artist Grieves, Budo took a step back into the studio in the Spring of 2012. Embarking on an exploratory creative process and drawing from inspirations as diffuse as James Blake, Miles Davis, Otis Redding, and Dinosaur, Budo has emerged with a record that is as at once strange, unique and immediately familiar. Trumpet lines float through the most intimate vocal melodies, weaving tales of heartbreak, hope, and sadness. The Finger and The Moon is, beyond anything else, immensely human.
A talented performer (over 1000 shows performed in some of the world’s pre-eminent venues, including sold out dates at Red Rocks, Berkeley’s Greek Theatre, Chicago’s Congress Theatre, and many many more), Budo’s solo show is a joyous affair! Singing, playing trumpet, keys, guitar, the artist inhabits the stage with the level of comfort and poise that only the most seasoned of performers display.
