Miles We Put Behind
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 album release shows across Alberta, 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.
