Buzz Cason – Record Machine (2015)
It’s been a long and varied ride to say the least for music veteran Buzz Cason. His career, which has spanned parts of six decades, has seen Cason sing backup for the likes of Elvis Presley and Willie Nelson and sing lead for Buddy Holly’s old band, the Crickets. He has penned songs that have been covered by U2 and The Beatles, sat in the producer’s chair and has found himself enshrined as a member of the Rockabilly Hall of Fame. He’s also a performer in his own right and his new release, Record Machine, is a mix of familiar sounds, yet somehow sounds fresh.Six decades on and Buzz Cason still has something to say musically. With an exciting new album, Record Machine, and a tour to follow, 2015 is shaping up to be a good year for this veteran.
