About Mariel Buckley · Calgary, AB
With her acclaimed sophomore album, Driving In The Dark, Buckley sets the roots music bar high as one of alt-country’s busiest artists. Bound to vulnerability and truth, her signature candour captivates audiences and listeners as she deftly matches stark and haunting narratives of real-life struggle with a cheeky and razor-sharp wit. Buckley’s introspective songs about real-life struggles are an honest and clear-eyed narrative wrapped in impeccably-composed balladry. Buckley represents a real roots alternative, a rebel spirit, and the brassy stage presence of a true raconteur.
