Buckeye Knoll emerged from months spent backpacking in the wilderness of California. Songwriter Doug Streblow carried with him a notebook and acoustic guitar and weaved stories into melodies into songs that would become their debut full length album "People and Place". Released in the Spring of 2010, the release received flattering praise from a wide array of media outlets including the SF Chronicle calling Streblow and the album "The Real Deal" and "Unforgettable". Buckeye Knoll hit the road in support of the release playing over 70 shows in just over a year including a 2 week tour down to SXSW 2011 in Austin, TX.
This Fall the band is heading up to a 300 acre ranch near Yosemite to set up a studio in a large remote cabin to create the follow up record to "People and Place". Engineer and longtime friend of the band, Cian Riordan (Taking Back Sunday, John Cragie, Man/Miracle) will be taking on the role of producer and Eric Valentine (All American Rejects, Nickel Creek, Third Eye Blind) is set to master.
The yet to be titled second full length album will be released in the Summer of 2012 accompanied by a full US tour including another stop at the SXSW festival in Austin.
