Richard Buckner, Anders Parker
Singer-songwriter Richard Buckner has a voice that could shift tectonic plates. Live, it practically pours out of him, shaking the room with sound as his eyes roll back into his head, trance-like. On recent tours he's taken to performing song suites, tying songs together with instrumental interludes created with the aid of a looping pedal. Since he's written some of the best songs released in the past decade, no one seems to mind when he keeps the talking to a minimum. He's joined by fellow alt-country stalwart Anders Parker, formerly of Varnaline, who's currently supporting his first solo album, Tell It to the Dust. Local hero Brent Best brings up the rear.
