As a guitarist and singer in Big Thief, Buck Meek has toured the world and recorded four acclaimed albums in four years. All the while, he's been writing songs that present a kaleidoscope of human relationships — of widows, daughters, flight attendants, best friends, bar flies, neighborhood heroes, and rogues — and the words unspoken that elucidate love. In the summer of 2019, Buck assembled his band in a house at the corner of Royal and Desire in New Orleans to record what would become his second solo album, Two Saviors. Recorded by Andrew Sarlo (Big Thief, Bon Iver), in just over a week from set-up to mix, Two Saviors captures an immediacy and warmth in its direct-to-tape performances. It also delivers an eloquent portrait in words and music of a yearning for connection and the inherent danger to the heart that comes with the bonds of love. The heat and light of a New Orleans summer penetrated the rooms as Buck’s band – Mat Davidson (Twain) on bass, pedal steel, fiddle and vocals; Austin Vaughn on drums; Adam Brisbin on guitar; and Dylan Meek on keys – found the palette for the songs.
