Artist: Mariel Buckley


It’s the kind of sound many musicians take years searching for, and since the rave reception of Mariel Buckley’s acclaimed sophomore album, Driving In The Dark, she continues to set the bar for roots music in Canada.
Buckley’s momentum has built quickly, and she finds herself as one of alt-country’s busiest acts, with recent performances in support of k.d. lang, Hayes Carll, Sarah Shook & The Disarmers, The Deep Dark Woods and Serena Ryder; as well as entertaining audiences throughout North America.
In contrast to her electric live show, built on the sounds of Americana found on Driving In The Dark, Buckley is currently focused on stripping things down and showcasing her lyrical poise on a limited 7” release (Spring 2020) which will precede her official full-length follow up.
A mesmerizing performer and studious songwriter, Mariel Buckley proves that with each new endeavour, she is bound to vulnerability and truth. This signature candour is what captivates audiences and listeners alike, and has planted her flag firmly as a songwriter in it for the long haul.
