ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After years of quietly uploading soul rock songs and music videos from a basement somewhere in Upstate New York, this "mixtape" marks a more formal debut of singer-songwriter Professor Buggy Jive. Equal parts Zeppelin and D’Angelo and Prince and Joni Mitchell in sound and sensibility, his lyrics often mine the literature of the past to make sense of the present – from Ellison to Morrison to Eliot to Didion. “Literary Kravitz,” as some say. On rare occasions, he will come out of the basement to perform his songs live – armed with a Telecaster and a pedalboard that’s a bit too big. But Buggy Jive does not come out of the basement often, and it’s a problem. This album was released in conjunction with his compromise on live performance and touring - a video, "The Buggy Jive House Concert," filmed in his home studio for a small audience of some of his oldest and dearest friends.
