I met Bart Budwig over glasses of whiskey before his raucous set at Pappy & Harriet’s, the storied roadside honky tonk in the California desert. A skilled sound engineer by trade and a tireless road dog at heart, he was perfectly at home sleeping out back in a tent that night and rolling out with his band at 5am the next morning, chasing the sun to his next gig. For Bart, the road is not an escape from his life in tiny Enterprise, Oregon, but a vehicle to dredge the reaches of his own psyche - the act of playing his songs night after night is catharsis through performance. He is running head-long into an exploration of humanity, loss, religion, and how to find humor in the things we struggle to talk about. - Kat Parker
"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)
"He’s a cosmic country lawn gnome. He’s cherubic, cheery, and an old soul. Songs spring from the dreams of his noon day naps, and punch the keys of his typewriter above the OK Theater in Enterprise, Oregon.” - Sean Jewell, American Standard Time (2018)
“Bart Budwig is maturing like a classic French wine, this time around he offers us mainly original
songs. All are very fine, sharp, well thought-out tracks... Bart Budwig, who in musical terms
has ‘arrived’.” - Country Music People (UK, June 2016)
