Richard Buckner was born in California, spent time in Canada and now resides in New York. His music has followed him the entire way. All the while, chasing the winds across the mid-western plains, picking up Texas dust and finding grace in the northeastern winter. You can hear America in his music.
2011 found Buckner releasing his latest critically acclaimed record, Our Blood. A long story explains the delay in its release with such antidotes as an unreleased film score, stolen laptops and headless corpses. Somehow the record found its way onto the presses. Pitchfork says "Buckner's voice feels experienced and empathetic, then, like a knowing pat on the back from a parent or an old friend that recognizes weakness yet pushes you ahead." SPIN declares, "Buckner creates wasted-night rhapsodies that demand you lean in close -- however warily."
