Miles We Put Behind
Buckley and esteemed engineer/producer Howard Bilerman met at the Banff Centre for the Arts in March of 2017. It took just one brief collaborative demo recording session, while at the Centre, for them to make the call to team up on Buckley’s fourth full length album.
The final product has not fallen short of expectations. “Miles We Put Behind” is, in notable ways, an extension of and a departure from Buckley’s previous work. It is a unique collaboration that beautifully combines his Roots influences and honest songwriting with some of Montreal’s most impressive indie players.
The recording has yielded an interesting and ear catching spin on a traditional Roots sound. It highlights his warm vocals and his mature, diverse, songwriting abilities - abilities that result in stories of lives buffeted by change, cut short by chance, or rising above trials and tribulations, to remain ever hopeful.
The album is a huge step forward in Buckley’s career and reflects an artist stepping into and taking ownership of his musical space.
