Biography

Joseph “Amp” Fiddler, originally a keyboardist from Detroit, is a funk and soul musician who has worked with Enchantment, the Dramatics, George Clinton, Moodyman, Jamiroquai, The Brand New Heavies, Fishbone and Maxwell.

Along with his brother, Budz, he realsed the album Mr Fiddler in 1990 on Elektra. His debut solo album Waltz of a Ghetto Fly was released in 2004.

The new album’Afro Strut’ is the follow up to that record and a sign that his assured and open-minded approach to his own sound has engendered a stylistic leap forward, creating in the process a diverse and ambitious second album. As a man who has achieved almost every goal he has set himself, whether it be becoming a multi instrumentalist talent, joining George Clinton’s Funkadelic, or developing a base for like minded musical luminaries to collaborate and create, it was always to be expected. ‘Waltz…’ was more of a vibe, a full stop on a long period of his life to that point and a drawing together of unfinished songs and feelings from his youth. ‘Afro Strut’ was to be the fresh start that sees Amp able to look further forward as well as back to his roots, and as a result has the feel of a more fully-realised vision.

The array of collaborators and contributors to the record further emphasises this approach.
