Known for his unique blend of progressive hip-hop, soul, blues, jazz and rock, Kuf Knotz is one of Philly’s fastest emerging alternative artists. No musical territory goes unexplored when it comes to Kuf, and it is this attitude that has led him to perform with top acts like Common, Old DB, New York Dolls, Steel Pulse, Amos Lee & The Roots to name a few.
Kuf even battered down historical barriers by becoming the first ever hip hop act to open up for the legendary “Boss” — Mr. Bruce Springsteen himself — at the internationally covered rally for then Presidential candidate, Barack Obama on Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Kuf’s career highlights did not end there. Going on to record “Unstoppable” the official song of World Series Champions, The Phillies, in 2008 with fellow notorious local artists, G. Love and Chuck Treece.
Kuf also 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.
