Formed in Pittsburgh, PA in 2016, Buffalo Rose blends folk, soul, and bluegrass into something amorphously Americana, but decidedly their own.
Three prominent singers (Shane McLaughlin, Lucy Clabby, and Rosanna Spindler) provide stunning vocal harmonies over dynamic, engrossing layers of stringed instruments. Specifically, acoustic guitar (McLaughlin), upright bass (Jason Rafalak), mandolin (Bryce Rabideau), and dobro (Malcolm Inglis.) Their sharp sense of rhythmic experimentation and evocative, storytelling lyricism come together for a sound with both shimmer and punch; it’s foot-tapping and breathtaking in turn. Buffalo Rose offers a warm, passionate homage to America’s classic musical traditions, with modern twists that keep things interesting and fun. In March of 2018, they released their first full-length album, the Soil and the Seed, and continue to travel to major U.S. cities to promote its release.
