Over a period of a few years, he experienced the dissolution of a marriage and the death of his close friend and writing partner. Writing about the darkness was the only way to keep going. These crystalline bits of bleary, haggard, emotion shine through Buffalo Gospel’s debut album, “We Can Be Horses.” Critics called the work “minimalist and masterful,” “musically arresting,” and “Milwaukee’s Best Kept Secret.”
“On The First Bell” was recorded with Grammy award-winning engineer, Brian Joseph (Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens, Indigo Girls) at The Hive, nestled quietly in the rural landscape just outside Eau Claire, WI. The new record combines the band’s dual penchant for hopped up trucker country and breathtakingly honest ballads.
Buffalo Gospel's albums and wildcat live performances take listeners to a dusty, forlorn, but strangely familiar place that simply gets sweeter with time.
