Buck Tingley feels the blues

Filed under: Uncategorized — kylelawrence @ 6:34 pm

Turtle Creek bluesman is trying to raise funds to put out his debut CD.

Even though we may not know it, Buck Tingley insists we’re all starved for the blues.

The guitarist, who hails from Turtle Creek but currently resides in Halifax, is more than willing to carve a new niche amongst the abundance of indie dance clubs that he says pump out an apathetic rhetoric, drowning the burley surley sound he craves. His current string of shows are designed to scrape together the funds needed to gain a government grant that will help him afford to record his debut, so we can listen in on all we’ve been missing.

“The blues is generally about things gone wrong, sad turns of events,” he said. “It’s supposed to be lowdown, dirty and grimmy, but for some reason it makes me the happiest man alive.”

That joy has kept him sustained through years of grueling tours, where gigs were few and far between. But Tingley said that being forced to the fringes only feeds him.
