“India has such a rich culture of music and art, we are excited that through technology we can connect with you from all the way here in Australia. Not to mention, one of our favourite bands, the Beatles, wrote much of ‘the white album’ in India… so we’ll most definitely have to play Beatles in this set for you Beatles fans like us! We can’t wait,” said The Buckleys ahead of their India show.
Earlier this month, the rising hippy country superstars recreated the personalised “live” experience during a time of social distancing, by performing virtual tour dates across North and South Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
The world virtual tour was developed in conjunction with the band’s record label, Petrol Records and US label, UMe. Performing individually curated shows for different regions, all streamed through Live Nation’s Live From Home platform and their partner affiliates across various participating countries including BookMyShow in India The Buckleys are one of the first bands to capture a global audience by performing a world virtual tour.
Petrol Records Founder and Chairman, CM Murphy said:
“Personally, I am stunned by the result”, said CM Murphy, Petrol Records Chairman.
“I am so proud of The Buckleys family, they carry the same mandate my showbiz Mother and Father gave me, the show must go on & Arthur Fogel made sure as hell that the show went on!”
Chairman of Global Music and President of Global Touring at Live Nation, Arthur Fogel said:
“We are thrilled to have been involved with introducing The Buckleys to the world. This was a great team effort and we look forward to bringing them back as soon as possible -for the real deal.”
The Buckleys are only the second signing to Petrol Records since CM Murphy signed award-winning siblings and band of brothers, INXS in 2009. Since their signing in 2019, the band has released two singles in Australia. The first “Daydream” catapulted the trio into the limelight, scoring a #1 single at Australian country radio, followed by second single, “I’m Comin’ For Ya (Love),” which reached #3. The success of the singles resulted in The Buckleys’ nomination for Qantas New Talent Of The Year award at the prestigious 2020 Country Music Awards Australian (Toyota Golden Guitar Awards) which recognize, celebrate and honor excellence and outstanding achievement in Australian country music.
A three-piece band of siblings (Sarah 20, Lachlan 18 and Molly 17 years of age), The Buckleys worked since they were young children towards their dream of a record deal, and the release of their first singles and tour. They’re now making that a reality, continuing to take the world by storm throughout 2020 and beyond.
Australian three-piece, THE BUCKLEYS, have just released their second worldwide single, “Breathe,” via Petrol Records/Universal Music Australia/UMe.
The new soul-stirring single comes nestled in an equally emotive animated video that showcases a haunting and impassioned side of the band’s pop Americana trademark which they call “hippie country.” Directed and animated by The California Institute of the Arts (a private visual and performing arts school founded by Walt Disney in 1961), the video’s stunning visuals evoke an emotional weight that highlights the melodic weather of the song… of misty Australian landscapes, frigid nights warmed by outback campfires, and those quiet moments of solace.
