Grateful Web is thrilled to present Buffalo Galaxy's latest single and accompanying music video, "Paint." Set to release on September 1st, 2023, this Minneapolis-based progressive bluegrass ensemble continues its cosmic journey, blending traditional sounds with modern flair.

The "Paint" music video, a picturesque reflection of the band's essence, was captured amidst the scenic beauty of Duluth, MN in the summer of 2022. Credit goes to Martinetto Media LLC for weaving a visual story that harmoniously complements the band's musical storytelling.

Buffalo Galaxy, with its unique brand slogan "Exploring deep space with lightspeed bluegrass", is a string band composed of:

    Peter Whiteman on bass and vocals
    Johnny Kovarik on guitar and vocals, who also penned the poignant lyrics for "Paint"
    Jake Rohde on mandolin and vocals
    Zach Tauer playing the banjo and lending his voice to the harmonies

This quartet isn't your everyday bluegrass band. Their musical spectrum, which echoes the likes of Bill Monroe to Lil Nas X, ranges from traditional bluegrass to a more experimental psychedelic sound. It's a musical concoction where heavy hitting psychedelia meets old timin’ bluegrass. With catchy originals like "Time Machine" and extended renditions of Grateful Dead classics, Buffalo Galaxy displays its versatility and depth.

Since their formation in 2019, Buffalo Galaxy has had a trailblazing run with over 250 shows across the US. Their 2023 tour has taken them to new heights, with memorable performances at Palisade Bluegrass Bash in Colorado, Blue Ox Music Festival in Wisconsin, AVL Fest in North Carolina, and the Summer's End Smoke Out & Porcupine Music Festival in Michigan, among others.

As Buffalo Galaxy propels forward in their musical journey, "Paint" stands as a testament to their evolving sound, rooted in tradition and reaching for the stars.
