Kuf Knotz is one of todays fastest emerging alternative artists. No musical territory goes unexplored when it comes to Kuf, and it is this attitude that has led him to open for top acts – Ms Lauryn Hill, Kabaka Pyramid, Robert Glasper, THE ROOTS, The Wailers, Common, Robert Randolph, Arrested Development, Inspectah Deck, Amos Lee, Steel Pulse, Zac Deputy, Josh Ritter, Bone Thugs & Harmony, Soulive , Easy Star Allstars & Rising Appalachia to name a few.
The new album by Philadelphia- and Brooklyn-based artist Kuf Knotz —
pushes the boundaries of hip-hop. “My music’s always had a pretty broad spectrum as far as influences go,” he says. “It feels really natural to blend genres. I’ve always just felt that music is music.”
Inspired to take his own indie-progressive style to the next level, Kuf began work on a collection of upbeat, feel-good music. “I felt like it was important and it was needed in hip-hop,” Kuf says. Armed with his songs, he headed for Amsterdam.
The change of scenery allowed him to focus on A Positive Light (2015) — his first album in more than three years — Kuf teamed with artists in The Netherlands who added live production who added vocals & who mixed the entire album.
Kuf volunteers his time for WXPN’s Musicians On Call program, bringing live music to the bedsides of patients through weekly programs at six area hospitals.
In late 2012 Kuf Knotz relocated and now resides in NYC.
Most recent update – Kuf has returned from The Netherlands and is in The studio finishing up a NEW ALBUM.!
