Whiskey Pushin' EP (TBR 2010)



Born out of nothing more or less than a vast mutual appreciation for good music and good times, The Buckin' Ladybugs assembled in the summer of 2009 after seasoned songwriter/performer Jobi Mihajlovich [Johnnie Ninety-Nine, Buffaloswans] and classically-trained-turned-fiddle player Arielle Campion took a drummer’s last minute hiatus as a perfectly reasonable excuse to make noise with some friends, new & old.

Shiloh Lindsey - hailed as “the whiskey sipping darling of the Vancouver country scene” - and the girls had been enamoured with each other’s songs since having been billed together earlier in the summer.

Accomplished bluegrasser Christopher Suen [Whiskeyjar, Lily Come Down, Shout! White Dragon] had been showing Jobi around the banjo and his immense repertoire of time-honoured folk music.

As undeniable a music scholar as he is a player, Ellis [British Columbians] had worked with Jobi on a few past projects, and was especially easy to round up since he and his big ol’ bass lived just down the street from their first venue.

Remarkable self-taught multi-instrumentalist Andy Bishop and dynamic rhythmist Colin Jones [both of Red Cedar] were tossing around a potential future collaboration with Johnnie Ninety-Nine, and roommate Jarred Greff [The Greff Band] happened to be passing through with a mandolin, a voice rich and deep like good earth, and a free afternoon.

This tasty blend of talent and happenstance performed for the first time as a one-off in Café Montmartre in Vancouver, BC on a sweltering midsummer night, and woke up several days later to find themselves in an ongoing series of backyard rehearsals and gigs to which everyone just keeps showing up. An inexhaustible mountain spring of influences, experiences, and emotions breathes youthful and creative life into a familiar sound by virtue of old-fashioned devotion to the craft. Solid, engaging, and always a bit of an adventure, The Buckin' Ladybugs go down like a favourite bourbon and won’t stop the music until you’re making it with them.
