Listening to Buffalo Rose is like driving on the open road with the windows down, letting the breezes of various musical styles wash over you. Buffalo Rose commandeers the shimmering and electrifying riffs of the mandolin, (Bryce Rabideau), the cascading guitar arpeggios of folk and bluegrass, (Shane McLaughlin), the ringing purity of the dobro, (Malcolm Inglis), and the steady percussive thrum of upright bass, (Jason Rafalak), providing an effervescent blanket of sound under and around which the ethereal harmonies of Lucy Clabby, Margot Jezerc, and McLaughlin float. There’s a singular beauty in every Buffalo Rose song, whether the group is covering Madonna’s “Borderline” or delivering their stirring original material.
The members of the band met four years ago in the Pittsburgh area. “All of us were active in the Pittsburgh music scene,” says McLaughlin. Each of them was playing different kinds of music, from folk to punk. They formed in 2016 when former member Mariko Reid got together with Clabby, Inglis and McLaughlin to record McLaughlin’s tune “Momma Have Mercy.” Before long the three had met up with Rabideau and Rafalak, and the band’s first EP, Red Wagon, debuted in November 2016.
