Buck’s first release “Fuse” is a bold new direction as it manages to blend aspects of vintage rock and roll with the currency of modern music. His hard-hitting riff-rock with grungy lead vocals, complemented by stylish drum parts and lush falsetto backups is dusted with some dreamy melody lines over the top that balance out the grit. The effect rides the line between Cobain and Elvis with accompaniment that feels reminiscent of early Arctic Monkeys and Kings Of Leon.
At the end of it all, what wins out is Buck’s honesty in his experiences, and willingness to share it openly. As a life-long student of the road, he will draw you in with his earnestness and approachable nature. With the upcoming release of his debut EP “Stone Feather” this summer, there are a number of reasons to keep an eye on Will and his 6-stringed companions as he continues down the artists path.
