Buckets Of are a rock/country/art/space 5-piece that formed in Toronto, Canada. The group started when Corey Wells and Meaghan Bent began mashing together country and rock. Meaghan was learning drums and Wells was/is already a gnarly guitarist with Ancestors. The two wrote a handful of catchy ditties and in Summer ’07 synth-ist Katie McLeod (aka: KTron816) joined and filled in the spaces with the flowery imagery and spaciness that would develop the band’s style. The trio formed as Buckets Of. After recording bottomless demos in November ’07 at The Pound in Montreal drummer-turned-bassist Wes Moore (Lunchmeat) became the engine of the music with driving county/punk bass lines. Most recently, Tyler McPherson has joined playing pedal steel and baritone guitar. He adds the class to our stage show, both in dress and musicianship.
