Luke Buda

Bio

Luke Buda is a founding member of the The Phoenix Foundation, who formed in 1997 and have since released 7 albums and 4 EPs. They've been nominated for over 30 Aotearoa Music Awards and they've won a few too! The Phoenix Foundation have been shortlisted three times for the IMNZ's Taite Prize, and three times finalists in APRA's Silver Scrolls. In 2009 Buda won a Silver Scroll, for his co-writing credit on Lawrence Arabia’s Apple Pie Bed.

In 2016 Buda co-wrote and produced Sir Dave Dobbyn's Harmony House, and in 2017 he released an album as one quarter of the band Teeth (an outfit featuring David Long of The Mutton Birds). Since 2007 he has composed music for television and film as Moniker. Their work can be found in seminal Aotearoa films such as Eagle vs. Shark, Hunt For The Wilderpeople, and Boy, the latter winning them Best Original Score at the NZ Film and TV Awards. In 2018 the group took home the APRA Best Original Music in a Series for Cleverman.

In between all of this Buda has released two solo albums, Special Surprise (2005, Arch HIll) and Vesuvius (2008, Arch Hill).

Buda is one of only a handful of New Zealand musicians to have made an appearance on BBC's Later... with Jools Holland, and recently made Morrissey quite angry when he contributed guitar to Everyone Is Horrid Except Me (And Possibly You) by Quilloughby feat. Lisa Simpson from the recent episode of The Simposon's 'Panic on the Streets of Springfield'.
