“A breath of fresh air” - Music Love
Recorded and filmed live in the stunning Bangalow Uniting Church, Buckingham has been penning songs for her next release and “Real Life” is a sneak peek into the new work.“I’m paying more attention to lyrics than ever before” Buckingham says “These days, I find myself mainly writing songs that speak to my experience of being a woman, just trying to navigate my way through life.
“‘Real Life’ is deeply personal, but when I shared a rough demo of it online, so many women wrote to me saying that they could relate. That’s what prompted me to release the song properly and go on tour - I want to share my stories because they’re other peoples’ stories too.”
This tour is the start of a new chapter for Buckingham, who has spent the last couple ofyears touring with the likes of Kasey Chambers, James Reyne, Jordie Lane and Diesel, writing and performing in the USA and lapping the country three times on sellout tours of her own.
