In Honor of Amp Fiddler

Our beloved “Amp” Fiddler, Detroit’s own world renowned ambassador of funk, soul, and electronic music, keyboardist, producer, Afro-futurist, and guiding force of light for so many, has transitioned at the age of 65. After an extensive and noble battle with cancer he now gracefully rests in peace and power.

It would be impossible to encapsulate the gravity of his energy, global impact & contributions.

His life’s work, legacy, & most importantly…his LOVE…will far exceed his earthly presence.
