Ebony Buckle is a London-based singer/songwriter, originally from her tropical seaside home of Townsville, Australia. Writing and performing with her husband, musician Nick Burns, who also produces her music, Buckle uses captivating stories to hold a mirror up to herself and the world. Reflected in these songs is our humanity – our wants and needs, our struggles to fit in or break out. With new song Wild Woman out, Ebony spoke with The Fountain about the new music and further plans for the year.
TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Wild Woman?
It’s been amazing to hear from so many people how much they connect to the song. It’s always a wonderful feeling when something you write reaches someone on a deep level.
TF: And can you sum up the track in one sentence?
This song is a plea to my inner wild woman to never leave me.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year?
This year is a huge one for me music-wise. I’ve been releasing my album Disco Lasers, one song at a time, each with it’s own music video to help tell the story. So we’ve been promoting the album and planning and filming music videos and also growing my Patreon community who are funding my whole project! Wild Woman is the 6th track we have released this year and we have four more to go. We also have a festival we are playing, an album launch party on the 11th November and then maybe in 2022 I can have a big nap.
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
I’m really excited to be returning to one of my favourite venues, The Pheasantry, for my album launch on the 11th of November. It’s going to be a night to remember for sure! I’ve played in lots of lovely venues although not recently due to the state of the world. I am so excited to start performing in front of real people again. You can’t beat it!
