Milwaukee-based Buffalo Gospel delivers heartfelt and heartbreaking timeless Country/Western and Americana arrangements. Bleary, haggard, emotion shines through in the raw lyrical honesty set against a tapestry of powerful minimalism. In a genre plagued by carbon copy insincerity, Buffalo Gospel’s breathtaking honesty and wildcat live performances take listeners to a dusty, forlorn, but strangely familiar place that simply gets sweeter with time.
Buffalo Gospel’s music has been praised as “minimalist and masterful,” “musically arresting,” and “Milwaukee’s Best Kept Secret.” After releasing their debut album, “We Can Be Horses,” in 2013 to rave reviews, the band followed up with a pair of EPs, including the critically-acclaimed 2015 release, “Waiting for the Lights to go Out.” Buffalo Gospel recorded their sophomore album in the summer of 2016 with engineer, Brian Joseph (Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens, Indigo Girls…etc) and is currently planning its 2018 release.
“Americana may continually blow in and out of fashion, but the expertly realized and deeply felt Americana of Buffalo Gospel defies any weather-bound tastes.” – Milwaukee Record
