Búi E. Dam

Copenhagen, Denmark

Búi E. Dam, born in Tórshavn, Faroe Islands, is a singer, songwriter, theatre composer and an actor.  

His debut solo album, under the artist name "BUDAM", Stories of Devils, Angels, Lovers and Murderers, released on Tutl Records in 2007, is a true testament to this.

Inspired by artists such as Nick Cave and Ennio Morricone, Budam is a mixture of different genres that can be best described as Theatrical Indie Pop. Budam represents the perfect marriage of theatrical brilliance and musical versatility.

With a deep and seductive voice, Budam's performance is forceful and untamed. His singing goes from animalistic growls to sensual sighs against the background of angelic harmonies and murderous rhythms. On stage, Budam offers a complete show, performing something like Jim Morrison doing Tom Waits in a Weimar Cabaret.

BUDAM second solo album, “Man”, was released on Tutl Records in 2011.

He played guitar in the band, Ivory, with famous Faroese singer, Eivør, bass player, Mikael Blak and drummer, Brandur Jacobsen.  Ivory released the critically aclaimed album entitled, “Eivør Pálsdóttir” on Tutl Records in 2000 which includes compositions and lyrics by Búi as well as collaborative works.
