“Winsome songs delivered with empathic delicacy” – Rolling Stone
After an impressive 18 months since releasing her acclaimed album “The Water” singer-songwriter sweetheart Sam Buckingham hits the road, touring for the first time with her band, bringing the album to life and premiering a swag of gorgeous new songs.
Recorded over just one week in a converted horse stable on the NSW south coast, “The Water” has seen Buckingham tour alongside Kasey Chambers, James Reyne, Jordie Lane and Diesel, showcase at Nashville’s renowned “Americanafest” and embark on three national sellout tours of her own.
“Gorgeous and moving… with an authenticity that is undeniable” – The Au Review
An audio journal of sorts, Buckingham penned the majority of the album while living in Latin America. An account of her time abroad – which included working on a permaculture farm in Costa Rica, volunteering with Sea Shepherd in Honduras and completing formal yoga teacher training in Mexico – “The Water” combines subtle rhythms and the emotive language of Latin America with fragile folk music, rousing Americana and pop inflected hooks.
Bringing her trademark intimate show to Brisbane, Bangalow, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide & Perth, Buckingham and her band will perform “The Water” in its entirety and showcase a collection of stunning new works, due to be recorded mid 2019.
