Musician. Born in Anaheim, California, he was a singer, songwriter, guitarist, whom emerged in New York City’s avant-garde club scene in the 1990’s. Signed to Columbia Records, he released his first album “At Sin-é” (1993) followed by his full-band album, “Grace” (1994). With the success of the albums, he went on an extensive tour of Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Holland, Belgium and the U.S. until the late fall of 1995. In 1996, in addition to his Columbia Records releases Buckley also appeared as a guest artist on several other recordings to include the group “Jazz Passengers” album “In Love” and the Rebecca Moore songs “If You Please Me”, “Outdoor Elevator” and “Needle Men”.
