He’s on the road, heading back home to Vancouver, but he’ll be making a stop here in Golden to play a show at Jita’s Cafe on Friday, April 20.
Buckman Coe’s smooth sound and soft melodies tend to hypnotize any audience he plays for, and is often compared to soulful singers like Jack Johnson and Ben Harper.
“I try to feel out the audience, to see sort of how upbeat a show is going to be,” said Coe. “And it doesn’t matter if it’s a big show or a small one, I just do my thing and try to connect with the crowd.”
Currently travelling with a three-piece band, Coe in an individual musician and songwriter at heart. And whether it’s love, nature, or any personal experience, Coe finds the inspiration for his music from his own life.
“My connection with nature is a big part of it, but I can find inspiration just about anywhere,” he said.
Coe is originally from Edmonton, but left as a teenager. He eventually found himself in Vancouver. It was there he realized music was his true calling in life.
“The Vancouver music scene has been really good to me,” said Coe. “I feel really connected there, and the people really get it.”
He was recently voted the second Best Unsigned Band in Vancouver in the 2011 Georgia Straight Readers Choice Awards.
Golden is one of the final stops on his cross-Canada tour, so don’t miss out on you chance to see Buckman Coe at Jita’s Cafe on Friday April 20.
