BUSKIN is a new combination of the considerable writing and performing talents of father David Buskin and daughter Sophie Buskin.
David Buskin has been writing and performing music his entire (long) life, most recently as part of the notorious “geezer trio” Modern Man and for years as half of the legendary folk/rock duo Buskin & Batteau, where his multiple vocal, songwriting and instrumental chops were given free rein. His songs and jingles have been recorded by countless artists, and he has won numerous awards – Clio, Bistro, NY Nightlife, Kate Wolf, Jamie deRoy ASCAP Songwriter and more.
Sophie Buskin is a veteran – since age four (!) – of the NYC studio–singing scene. She was also, while at school, a member of the prestigious Berklee Gospel Choir. She has backed up Jewel, Little Anthony, Alana Davis, Marci Geller and Paul Shaffer, among others. In this, her second year of applying to NERFA, she was deemed worthy of a Tricentric Showcase. She is currently working – in collaboration with her co-proucers, Neale Eckstein and Steve Jagoda – on her first CD as a singer/songwriter.
Their voices blend magically, as frequently seems to happen when there is shared DNA, and their writing styles – his out of folkie roots, hers more grounded in alternative bands – combine in a compelling and nuanced multi-generational hybrid.
