Buckman Coe has launched an international career from Vancouver over the past decade starting out as an acoustic folk singer-songwriter in cafes and house concerts from East Vancouver to Kitsilano. Several early big breaks put him in front of large audiences at festivals such as Salmon Arm Roots & Blues and Oregon Country Fair. His music evolved as he grew a band and incorporated Americana, Soul, World, and Reggae into their sound. Four albums later he has taken his music to Australia, Asia, Hawaii, and all over Western Canada.
The new album is an exploration of place and of responsibility to know where one is, where one is from, and to do what one can to protect and show that love for a place and its people. Buckman has drawn inspiration from his involvement in local and international movements to honour the earth, its indigenous peoples, and to hopefully provide a future for coming generations. In usual fashion his music seeks to uplift and inspire his listeners with beauty and playfulness.
