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 inter-generational favourite. The release has so far exceeded expectations - selling out venues across Western Canada, and debuting on the CBC Top 20 Chart for nine consecutive weeks, named one of CBC’s Fan Favourites of 2018 and listed as a “Calgary Artist of 2018” by the Calgary Herald.
