Donna The Buffalo Silverlined

Donna The Buffalo celebrates their 20th Anniversary
With return to Sugar Hill Records, release of Silverlined

Donna The Buffalo
Donna the Buffalo is twenty years young this year and as energized as ever. Their seventh record, Silverlined, which will be released on Tuesday, July 8, 2008 on Sugar Hill Records, builds on Donna the Buffalo's signature sound - a bedrock of traditional mountain music infused with elements of Cajun, rock, folk, reggae and country. Throughout Silverlined, these undulating rhythms carry the original lyrics, and alternating vocals, of founding members Tara Nevins and Jeb Puryear along a powerful, mesmerizing current.

Donna The Buffalo represents one of most respected 'brands' in the world of touring roots acts. The band has put countless mile on their vintage biodiesel bus playing the country's most prestigious festivals and clubs.

Unlike their last record, Life's A Ride, which was recorded in DTB's home studio, (The Tracking Shack, in Perry City, New York) Silverlined went many miles, and has many hands in its making. Only one track was recorded in their home studio; two were recorded at Yes Master studio in Nashville, Tennessee, ten at Echo Mountain in Asheville, North Carolina, and several vocal tracks were laid down at Sound Cell Studio in Huntsville, Alabama.

Silverlined was co-produced with - and engineered by - New York-based recording engineer Joe Blaney, whose eclectic list of clients includes the diverse talents of Keith Richards, Prince, and Blues Traveler.

Rounding out DTB with Nevins (vocals, guitar, fiddle, accordion) and Puryear (vocals, guitar) are Tom Gilbert, drums (eleven years with DTB), David McCracken, keyboards, and Jay Sanders, bass (he recently replaced Bill Reynolds who's off with Band of Horses). Silverlined also includes the talents of such well-known guests as Bela Fleck, Claire Lynch, David Hidalgo and Amy Helm.

johnnygoff, "Beloved touring groups.." well said, amigo, well said indeed. Saw them last week in Burlington and it was a superb show. Great writing, great music, super cool crowd, I have nothing but admiration for Jeb & Tara and the gang. I'm sure you are a Grassroots alumni...trying to make it our your way for this years fest. You folks in NJ have a good chance to see them twice at the end of this month, too.

I saw Donna the Buffalo at Jamm in Jamaica and if it were not for the free rum punch the bartender kept pouring all night, I would have fallen asleep in the sand listening to them. I am not saying they are all completely untalented, Jeb is certainly an excellent guitar player but in my humble opinion, this band is as boring as it gets. I would rather watch paint dry than listen to them.
