Watch: Buck Meek In-Studio “Ruby” Video

Jul 10, 2018

Big Thief guitarist Buck Meek just released an in-studio video of "Ruby" for Blue Room, the video series from Thrd Coast, a Brooklyn and San Francisco-based blog. "Ruby" is from Meek's really good folk-country-bluegrass debut self-titled solo album that came out in May. Here's a bit from Meek's site.

Buck Meek’s songs are for the lost dogs of honest mechanics, good guys and girls born into a life of crime, runaways, snow spirits, the ghosts of Central Park, unsung diving-board stars, the affection shared through gambling, and so on. Bred in Texas, more bread in New York City, Meek spins outlaw ballads and quotidian fairy tales into a yarn, with Adam Brisbin on guitar (Jolie Holland, Sam Evian, Katie Von Schleicher), Mat Davidson on bass (Twain, The Low Anthem, Spirit Family Reunion), and Austin Vaughn on drums (Here We Go Magic, Luke Temple, Sam Evian).
