T. Buckley’s songs blew across the prairies like a Nor’easter, hanging on to their creator as he stormed into the Calgary scene. With his family’s Atlantic roots anchoring his country sound, he produced two albums with renowned Calgary group The T. Buckley Trio.
Buckley could have kept his tunes on the straight country roads between Red Deer and Nanton, Lethbridge and Fort MacLeod. Instead he veered off course, landing in the Banff Centre for the Arts for its inaugural singer-songwriter residency. Recording engineer Howard Bilerman awaited the new compositions, an unnerving prospect for Buckley. But the in-studio chemistry was undeniable, and soon Buckley found himself on a new stylistic route.
Miles We Put Behind is the result of that collaboration, a collection of songs interrogating what it means to be a husband, father, and keen observer of the world around him. His new sound represents his personal transformations, revealing a more vulnerable self on songs like “Least a Man Can Do.”
Where T. Buckley goes next is as yet unknown, but his determination to push into new creative realms means he is an artist only at the beginning of a long career.
