MERCHANDISE

BIOGRAPHY

Bart Budwig's new concept album (his 5th full-length record) Paint By Numbers Jesus is a meditation on Jesus as a cultural figure, and a walk through the mind of someone who is processing their place on the faith spectrum. It was inspired, partly, by Willie Nelson’s Redheaded Stranger, a group of cover songs, strung together tightly by Nelson originals, all coalescing on a theme. Budwig’s PBNJ showcases his arranging skills on Bobby Bare’s silly-yet-earnest “Dropkick me Jesus” turning it into a ska-tinged party. And he amps up Tom Waits’ irreverent “Chocolate Jesus” bringing it to a swamp-funky climax. His own writing poignantly holds the pieces together to form a whole - specifically Nebraska 2, on which his clear, affect-less voice rings through like a church bell at the top of the record.
