Buck Meek's solo album is a natural extension of his integral role in Big Thief (co-founding member and lead guitarist). The 10 song collection recalls, reflects and expands upon personal experiences prior to the Brooklyn quartet's success. There's emotive familiarity in his poignantly pretty lyrics and an enlightening newness to the songs' structures. These beautifully blended qualities, as well as musical contributions from Adam Brisbin on guitar (Jolie Holland, Sam Evian, Katie Von Schleicher), Mt. Davidson on bass (Twain, The Low Anthem, Spirit Family Reunion), and Austin Vaughn on drums (Here We Go Magic, Luke Temple, Sam Evian), make Buck Meek an album to hear. It was released on Austin-based indie label Keeled Scales on May 18, 2018. Buck Meek has toured with Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, Sam Evian, Twain, and Margaret Glaspy. He’s also played SXSW the past two years. In 2018 he played at Willie Nelson's Luck Reunion, enthusiastically previewed in NPR's Austin 100 and accurately captured by American Songwriter. "A thrilling elaboration of all the things that make Meek's guitar playing so compelling in Big Thief ... When he plays live, he channels the tension of his body into his dynamic playing, which is jumpy and electrifying as an ungrounded wire. Here, he matches that dynamism with his voice's own odd inflections and a twisted yarn of a story." NPR // "A relaxed country rocker with some serious lead guitar" Brooklyn Vegan // "Wonderful indie folk ... indebted to vintage country" Uproxx
