About Mariel Buckley
Few performers combine the lyrical heartfelt authenticity of classic country music with a steely eyed intensity that compels an audience’s attention like Calgary, Alberta’s Mariel Buckley.
An emerging live performer, with an appearance at the Calgary Folk Music Festival and its winter subsidiary [Block Heater] to her credit, Buckley deftly matches her stark and haunting narratives of real-life struggle with a brassy wit that sets her apart from her contemporaries in its fearlessness.
She’s been hailed by No Depression as, “a new Loretta Lynn, speaking her mind, joking, flirting, ruminating. Throw in a little Townes Van Zandt and you’ve got an artist who’s going to grab a lot of listeners’ attention.”
Currently post-production with producer Leeroy Stagger for her sophomore recording “Driving In The Dark”, Mariel Buckley’s skills as a songwriter and performer continue to impress new listeners while her long-time supporters look on with an assured understanding that they knew the depth of her talents from the beginning.
