Multi-instrumentalist, producer, and singer-songwriter Kevin Buckley started taking Irish fiddle lessons at the age of 9 and spent his subsequent teenage years performing and competing all over the U.S. and Ireland, establishing himself as a valued proponent of Irish traditional music.
Buckley also spent a lot of time playing in garage rock bands and soon took an interest in songwriting, influenced by his folk background and the classic rock radio that pervaded his Midwest upbringing.
In 2007, Buckley released an indie album of all original music under the moniker Grace Basement. What started as a four track home recording project became a full-on rock band, which is still active today (the 4th album, Mississippi Nights, was released 2018). Buckley recently released his debut solo album, Big Spring, in February. You can usually find him performing weekly at St. Louis’ treasured Irish pub, John D. McGurks or online via his musical instruction website, String Village.
