Originating out of Lasalle and Harrow, Ontario, Buck Twenty are building themselves a promising musical career – all while balancing busy lives. As a strong duo, Mike Ure and Aidan Johnson-Bujold capture a fresh, young country sound through their unique vocal tones and newfangled melodies. Since their start, the pair have released their first EP, along with their first single, titled “Here’s to the Nights,” which peaked at #58 on the Canadian charts. Ure, who works midnights as a nurse and Johnson-Bujold, a full-time music student at the University of Windsor, both put their all into Buck Twenty, writing, recording and touring while managing to keep the other elements of their lives on a steady track. The group recently had the opportunity to open for Brett Kissel at both the Colosseum at Caesar’s Windsor, as well as the Chrysler Theatre, which was a great success.
Record Breaker’s Taylor Severin and Brady Anderson had the chance to sit down and have a chat with Aidan Johnson-Bujold, who shared lots of information about the origin of the band, their greatest achievements thus far, what inspires them, what goes on when they aren’t creating new music or touring, as well as their plans for the future. The entire interview is available for listening on our SoundCloud, which can be found below.
