With over 150 national/international shows per year and seven full-length records, Bart Budwig and his cosmic country/secular gospel has become a mainstay of the Pacific NW music scene.
While Budwig’s records are known for their full band production and multi-faceted arrangements, many of his live shows strip this away, leaving him alone on stage. For some this may feel a rarer, more intimate affair. A man, a guitar, a single spotlight. It is this ambiance, this raw intimacy, that Budwig sets out to capture with his sixth LP, “Sabai.”
“From his home in Enterprise, Oregon, Budwig has established himself as one of the region’s most promising young country musicians.” – Oregon Public Broadcasting (2017)
“Paint By Numbers Jesus is an odyssey through American music with a backslidin’ gospel feel. Budwig has a knack for distilling songs down to their most significant elements, which he does here even with a full band.” – American Standard Time (2018)
