BRIAN BUCKLEY BAND

“We should constantly be attempting to revolutionize sound—not categorize it.”

Breaking boundaries and creating new musical standards drive Brian Buckley as a songwriter and performer.  Born and bred in California, he has spent his life making music and tailoring his craft.  His powerful and moving debut studio record 'For Her' managed to project the in-the-moment vibe of his live performance, as well as his myriad of influences and experiences. Never one to force the process, his muse comes naturally and is uninhibited.

Some choice hands helped articulate the musical moments, including Zappa alumni Vinnie Colaiuta on drums and five-tour Zappa vet Arthur Barrow (bass, piano, organ), who also produced and engineered the record.  Alan La Police and Erik Leckrone sweetened the musical pot with their percussive antics while Adam Watkins worked the keys.  Scott Gordon’s mastering work (Alanis Morrisette and Ringo Starr) polished off the dynamic debut.

Brian Buckley Band's 2nd album 'Without Injuring Eternity' is a deeper and richer exploration into their sound with producer Mark Howard (U2, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits) at the helm. Using the unique and creative environment of the Mack Sennett Sound Stage, Howard pushed the band to the limit of inventiveness to create new, interesting and distinctive sounds, strong melodies and hooks, bizarre drum grooves, unusual song arrangements - sometimes making the band play in ways they had not played before in order to produce their best performances.

At the fore-front is Brian Buckley’s beautiful and emotional vocal, alternating between his effortless and powerful falcetto and his natural register to create a magical and mysterious blend. Telling the story of his life experiences, each song is a unique world in itself, connected by the thread of Brian’s vocals. 'Without Injuring Eternity' is a heart-felt and emotional record of a kind that is sorely missing these days..  The single 'Mother's day' from the forthcoming album will be available as a digital download on 29th June 2009.
