In Buckley’s fifth album, “Miles We Put Behind”, he has veered off the straight Alberta country roads, landing in the Banff Centre for the Arts where he met Grammy-nominated producer and engineer, Howard Bilerman. The in-studio chemistry was undeniable, and soon Buckley found himself on a new stylistic route, eschewing his country past for a more polished, honeyed and honest sound.
Miles We Put Behind was recorded at Hotel2Tango, a 24-track analogue recording studio in Montreal, and is inspired by the music of Texas great songwriters - Guy Clark, James McMurtry and Lyle Lovett. This project is a collection of mature, introspective songs, interrogating what it means to be a husband, father, and most importantly, keen observer of the world around him.
Buckley’s new approach to roots and country music has made him an intergenerational favourite. Miles We Put Behind made its debut in radio charts across Canada including CBC Top 20 (4 consecutive weeks), National Campus Radio (#2 on Folk Charts), and CKUA (Alberta) Radio Chart and was recognized in an International Songwriting Contest in Kerrville Texas.
