The Austin 100: Buck Meek

Loading the player ...
Hometown: Brooklyn, New York
Genre: Americana
Why We're Excited: Buck Meek is best known as the lead guitarist and cofounder of Big Thief, but he's also got a nice, low-key side gig going as a solo artist. On his own, he rambles and twangs through conversational, countrified, vividly detailed stories of wanderers, lost souls and dreamers.
