Description

Mariel Buckley and her Band - Rhinestones in The Rough Tour - at Black Cat Tavern

March 8 - 9pm // 10pm show - doors - $12adv // $15door

Few performers combine the lyrical heartfelt authenticity of classic country music with a steely-eyed intensity that compels an audience’s attention like Calgary, Alberta’s Mariel Buckley. Amidst a sea of neon-Nashville superstars, Buckley offers a crunchy, roots alternative. It’s the kind of sound many musicians take years searching for, and the arrival of Buckley’s spectacular sophomore full-length album, Driving In The Dark, proves that she hasn’t taken a moment for granted. Delivering on the promise of her previous album, Motorhome (and then some), Driving In The Dark finds Buckley planting her flag firmly as a songwriter who’s here for the long haul, one with the chops to hang with the greats she finds herself sharing stages with more often these days.

She continues to depict the trials of everyday life with unflinching honesty, painting poetically plainspoken highs and lows, long nights and hard days, all filtered through her wry, no-bullshit perspective. Much of it was stoked by the impressive team she assembled for the recording sessions, led by producer Leeroy Stagger at his Rebeltone Ranch studio in Lethbridge, Alberta.

From the moment she arrived on the scene with her self-titled EP in 2012, Mariel quickly earned the respect of the Alberta roots music community. With the release of Motorhome two year later, the accolades kept growing, leading to performances in support of k.d. lang, Hayes Carll, Whitehorse, The Deep Dark Woods and Serena Ryder; as well as entertaining audiences throughout Folk Festivals across Western Canada (Calgary, Edmonton, Canmore, Vancouver, Lethbridge, Regina)

No Depression hails her as, “a new Loretta Lynn, speaking her mind... Throw in a little Townes Van Zandt mixed with Joan Jett and you’ve got an artist who’s going to grab a lot of people’s attention.”
