Buck Meek might be best known for being the guitarist for the Indie Rock band Big Thief, but he has always been a fiercely talented solo musician as well. He recently released a solo record on Keeled Scales, and is gearing up to tour the country in support of the album. That tour kicks off in Boston on Thursday
In his first full length effort, Buck’s intricate guitar work serves as the perfect accompaniment to the stories that he aims tell in his own unique voice. With his new found fame as being a member of Big Thief, his solo work may finally be heard by a larger audience, who is bound to enjoy the 10 new songs Buck puts forward. I was able to catch up with Buck before his set with Big Thief at Boston Calling to find out how these songs came together. We also talked a little bit about how Big Thief has been able to become one of the most exciting bands in the current indie scene.
