At the heart of all great music is a story, and for that matter, a storyteller. The stories behind Milwaukee-based Buffalo Gospel begin with its founder Ryan Necci and his early introduction, through his fathers record collection, to country music, John Prine and Townes Van Zandt. Growing up in a small, lower middle class farm town, the songs of love and loss and broken blue-collar dreams seeped into him. When he started writing his own music over a decade ago, it was inevitable that the timeless quality of Country/Western and Americana arrangements would profoundly inform his art.

Over a period of a few years, he experienced the dissolution of a marriage and the death of his close friend and writing partner. The immediate response was to quit music and live with his demons, yet as time moved on, writing about the darkness was the only way to keep going. These crystalline bits of bleary, haggard, emotion shine through Buffalo Gospels debut album, We Can Be Horses, which came out in 2013 to rave reviews. Critics called the work minimalist and masterful, musically arresting, and Milwaukees Best Kept Secret.

The band followed up with two critically-acclaimed EPs while gathering momentum for their sophomore album. On The First Bell was recorded with Grammy award-winning engineer, Brian Joseph (Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens, Indigo Girls) at The Hive, nestled quietly in the rural landscape just outside Eau Claire, WI, and is planned for release in early 2018. Necci says, It was the perfect place for us to record these songs. The new record has the same strong, country-americana feel as We Can Be Horses, combining the bands dual penchant for hopped up trucker country and breathtakingly honest ballads. Most of these songs would be right at home amidst the 1970s AM radio nuggets gleaned from Neccis fathers old record collection.

Buffalo Gospel delivers through a virtual whos-who of crack Midwest musicians who have assembled around Neccis heartfelt and heartbreaking songs  including Kevin Rowe (bass), Nick Lang (percussion), Haley Rydell (fiddle), Andrew Koenig (guitar). The bands wildcat live performances take listeners to a dusty, forlorn, but strangely familiar place that simply gets sweeter with time.

================================================================

His obsession of music and all things lyrical began with the meeting of Todd Sniders Near Truths and Hotel Rooms. The influence of the Americana movement and his favorite songwriters pushed him to put his own truths on paper and eventually start playing his stories in local dive bars and coffee houses. Since then, Derek has reached a larger audience in venues across Wisconsin and the Midwest. Dereks music has been described by The Onion as taking another kind of thoughtful, rootsy detour, at times digging up raggedy old soul sounds, and other times leaning into the quiet barren territory where Gillian Welch fans dwell. Dereks music is captivating in the sense that all walks of life have found solace in his sound.
