Produced by Jonathan Tyler, Peace & Cornbread is a true slice of Texas and Americana music. From the opening track and lead single, “Hills and Valleys,” Peace & Cornbread embodies an organic mix of musical styles, emotions and well-crafted melodies that are certain to win the hearts of fans, both old and new, for the Denton, Texas-based band.
With a unique blending of mandolin, harmonica, acoustic and electric guitars, piano, drums and bass, Peace & Cornbread sounds like a wayward child of Appalachia filtered thru the lenses of Texas Country, psychedelia, Southern Rock, and singer-songwriter folk rock. The Buffalo Ruckus meld these seemingly disparate genres together into a cohesive collection of songs, where melancholy, heart-tugging melodies give way to raucous, hard-edged rockers. It’s a delicate balance, one which the group pulls off with ease.
One can hear the many musical influences that the band draws from, including The Allman Brothers, SteelDrivers, Led Zeppelin, Widespread Panic, Grateful Dead, The Band, Guns N Roses, Jeff Buckley, Neil Young, Radiohead, and the Marshall Tucker Band, just to name a few. Yet, The Buffalo Ruckus effortlessly manages to rise above mere comparisons to their influences as they present their own sonic statement with Peace & Cornbread, the next chapter of their musical journey.
