Short Bio

Buffalo Rose is a wildly charismatic six-piece folk/pop group from Pittsburgh that will change your entire perspective on acoustic music.

Long Bio

Buffalo Rose is a wildly charismatic six-piece folk/pop group from Pittsburgh that will change your entire perspective on acoustic music. They take the singer-songwriter tradition to a new level by crafting original songs which are emotive, meticulously arranged, and inspired by a world of idiosyncratic influences that never let a dull or predictable moment creep in. 

The band released their debut album, The Soil and the Seed, in 2018 and established themselves as a vocal, instrumental, and creative force. Since then, Buffalo Rose has dropped two EPs, 2019’s Big Stampede and 2020’s Borrowed and Blue, opened for the Wood Brothers, Pokey LaFarge, Tyler Childers, Infamous Stringdusters, and shared a festival stage with the legendary Sam Bush. The band’s upward trajectory will continue with a pair of singles created in collaboration with Grammy-nominated songwriter Tom Paxton in September 2021 and January 2022 and a new full-length record in the Summer of 2022. 

The Buffalo Rose lineup of Lucy Clabby (vocals), Margot Jezerc (vocals),   Bryce Rabideau (mandolin),  Malcolm Inglis (dobro), Jason Rafalak (upright bass), and Shane McLaughlin (guitar, vocals) pushes itself and each other far beyond their perceived limits and blends their diverse and atypical approach to songwriting with the desire to see how unique a song can get and still feel like home. They use powerful vocal harmonies, strong playing, and an original vision to operate at every possible emotional level and put on dynamic live shows that are unforgettable experiences. They go from up and moving to sad and sweet and back again, bringing the entire audience along. 

 

This combination of artistry and enthusiasm makes Buffalo Rose one of the most vital and important groups working today. Rather than play the folk music of the past, the band gleefully combines genres and ideas together to move acoustic music forward to a new, contemporary place without ever losing sight of its roots. Fans of Lake Street Dive, Nickel Creek, and Punch Brothers will find much to like in this crew. Anyone seeking compelling new acoustic music needs to join Buffalo Rose in the future right now.

Press Quotes

“The balancing act that the six musicians of Buffalo Rose achieve is something to be celebrated. The group match each other's energy both in instances of quiet tenderness and rich swells... that vocal blend not only sets the mood for the folk tunes but also makes those dynamic changes seem so fluid.”

— NPR Music

“Don’t be surprised if the vocals give you goosebumps.”

— Americana Highways

 

“If there’s one thing to be thankful for in this godforsaken coronavirus-infested world, it’s that Buffalo Rose got to record their new EP before social distancing.”

— Pittsburgh Current

 

“A must-listen for everyone with ears”

— Music Mecca

 

“Anyone who has tried recording live knows how that process exposes imperfections, and doing so with a lone microphone requires tremendous preparation and careful attention to your performance within the band setting. But this young sextet is up to the task.”

— Bluegrass Today

“light, delicate, poised, and calming”

— American Songwriter

“conjures early Carole King... with clear echoes of Neil Young”
