Exclusive premiere: Watch the video for Calgary roots artist T. Buckley’s new single Least A Man Could Do

Calgary roots veteran T. Buckley took a huge leap forward with the release of his fifth album Miles We Put Behind late last year.

An assured, earthy, organic and soulful prairie-ana offering, it understandably and deservedly pushed the songwriter further into the collective consciousness getting national play on CBC and becoming a fixture on Alberta broadcaster CKUA.

Now he’s about to take another step forward with the release of the gorgeous video for his sombre, moody new single Least A Man Could Do, which was actually the jumping off point and tone setter for Miles We Put Behind. It was the first one he worked on with album producer Howard Bilerman, former drummer for Arcade Fire and a man who has credits on albums by Canadian acts such as Basia Bulat, Tricky Woo, Wolf Parade and Leonard Cohen

“This was the first song I recorded with Howard, and his creative spin on this tune took me out of my comfort zone. It was the reason I later flew out to Montreal to record the album with him,” says Buckley. 

The video was shot in and around the southern Saskatchewan town of Hazlet by award-winning filmmakers Brett Connors and Brett Ferster, from Light Factory, along with Director of Photography, Grant Cooper.

It’s meant to be “a beautiful short film portraying a fever dream of lovers on-the-run” and it succeeds wonderfully.

We’re honoured, proud and excited to share the exclusive premiere of the video and hope you enjoy it.
