The Flying Buffaloes Interview by Christian Lamitschka for Country Music News International Magazine & Radio Show
Flying Buffaloes is a five-piece Alt-Country/Rock band based out of East Nashville, TN. Performing regularly along Nashville’s neon strip, the group quickly earned the reputation of being one of the most hard-working, sonically-tight, and energetic bands in Music City.
With appearances at some of Nashville’s biggest live venues and showcases, including Legend’s Corner, The Local, Mercy Lounge, Exit/In, Basement East, Loser’s Whiskey Jam, and Tin Roof’s Bus Call, the Flying Buffaloes took their kinetic show on the road in 2018. The group made appearances at festivals, headlined a Midwest tour, performed in Hawaii, completed a tour in Texas opening for acclaimed Red Dirt Country artist, Wade Bowen, and in 2019, opened a string of shows with Drivin’ and Cryin’. Their debut EP, Taking Off, received regional mainstream country and rock radio airplay, and the band’s debut single and 360° music video, “Hey 😉 Is For Horses,” garnered praise on Huffington Post. However, Flying Buffaloes’ biggest achievement to date is their debut LP, Loaded & Rollin’.
A deeply personal album, Loaded & Rollin’ features the first songs co-written by the band. It explores, in addition to the isolation and depression associated with immigration, the ups-and-downs of love, relationships, and the essence of what it means to be a working Nashville band. Recorded at Battle Tapes Studio in East Nashville by Grammy award winning engineer/mixer/producer Jeremy Ferguson (Cage The Elephant / Steelism / Andrew Combs), Loaded & Rollin’ harkens to classic rock and outlaw country albums of the 1970s. The production captures the band’s raw energy in-studio and aims to give the listener a taste of Flying Buffaloes’ captivating live performance.
