Born a Northerner with a Texas soul, multi-genre singer/songwriter Josh Buckley is set to release his long-awaited (sophomore?) solo album, Blind Side of the Heart on September 4th.
First premeiring his talents in Austin in (2011) fronting the critically acclaimed alt-country band Gilded Splinters, Buckley took the local music scene by storm. Playing a multitude of venues, events, and showcases, Buckley has built a solid and dedicated local fan base in a span of only a few short years.
Buckley's upcoming exposé reveals the true merit of his abilities, serving up elements of alt-country and old-time rock-and-roll with a side of blues and garnished with soul. His single, Sara, a soul-baring yet teeth-clenching tune featured on KUT's Austin Music Minute, is only a hint of what Blind Side of the Heart has to offer.
From Boston to Austin,Buckley's Blind Side of the Heart is set to hit the ground running with his radio-ready tunes.
