Biography

Amp Fiddler is a celebrated funk-soul musician from Detroit who has shared stages and studios with everyone from Prince and George Clinton to Primal Scream and underground Detroit producer Moodyman. He has released 3 solo albums and toured extensively throughout the world.

Amp also played a pivotal role in bringing Slum Village to global attention, and was a friend and collaborator with their producer, the late James "J Dilla/Jay Dee" Yancey. 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.
