Drawing from Soul, Americana, and Reggae, Buckman Coe’s music always seeks to uplift while forwarding messages of togetherness and social justice. He and his band have a dynamic repertoire that can suit theatres as well pack dance-floors. In support of Coe’s four albums, his band has toured across Canada, Australia, Taiwan, Indonesia, Oregon, and Hawaii.

His recent release Malama Ka ’Aina (2016) – a Hawaiian phrase meaning to respect the land – is a gorgeous fusion of reggae, soul, and world music. With the masterful production by global/electronic artist Adham Shaikh and Jason Kechely, Coe creates ethereal, soul-drenched vocals that soar over arrangements celebrating the awakening of social consciousness and global unity. It was nominated in the Western Canadian Music Awards for World Album of the Year 2016, and was in the top 10 World Charts in College and Community Radio in the USA.

Over the past 7 years of touring Canada, Hawaii, Oregon, Australia, Indonesia, and Taiwan, Buckman Coe has established a reputation for high-energy, uplifting, horn-infused Roots Rock Reggae. At the same time, he has remained engaged in social and ecological justice movements as a citizen and as a musician writing for various frontlines and initiatives, and performing at rallies and fundraisers. This has made him an artist with a wide repertoire and adaptability as a big band leader and solo artist.

“If you enjoy the laid-back likes of Ben Harper and Jack Johnson, odds
are good that you’re going to love this unrelentingly positive,
completely accomplished triumph
–Georgia Straight

“If this were 1973, back when singer-songwriters ruled the earth, with
a couple of breaks and a bit of AM radio airplay, he’d be busy chasing
gold-record royalty cheques and house-hunting in Laurel Canyon” –
Mike Usinger

“Malama Ka ‘Aina is a danceable album filled with positive vibes,
delivers its strength through the albums ability to thematically bridge
participation in civil society and celebrate life, love, and humanity” –
Tone Deaf
