Alberta Singer/Songwriter T. Buckley Releases NEW Album, Miles We Put Behind + Single “Half A Heart” - Fall Tour Begins Oct 19 in Calgary!
“T. Buckley is a genuine songwriter, cast from the same mold as Guy Clark, Townes van Zandt & Steve Earle. His music is sincere, genuine, and from the heart.” -- HOWARD BILERMAN, PRODUCER
About ‘Half A Heart’ - Sitting in his living room, an older man started to share his story with me… his struggles, his memories, and his past. He told me how he was separated from his brother at a young age, and reconnected after twenty years apart. As I sat there listening to him talk about the powerful experience of reuniting, I thought about how we all have this yearning desire for companionship or connection, and how we all struggle when it’s missing. Whether you’ve lost a soul mate, family member, or been separated from a loved one, we all know the feeling, like living with Half A Heart.
