Purveyors of what they call“Hippie Country”– a genre representing the infectious personality and spirited conscience that the band maintains through these tough times – these three young artists, Sarah 20, Lachlan 19 and Molly 17, have received widespread transcontinental praise in the media as well for their refreshingly exciting brand of rootsy pop. American Songwriter lauded, "Every so often, something special comes along. Something so cool and authentic that the world has no choice but to sit up and take notice. The Buckleys are that special something."Guitar World pointed out their“infectious, feel-good hooks”,while The Honey Pop described them as a"blend of Country, Pop, Indie and Americana with a sprinkle of Fleetwood Mac."SPIN, LA Weekly, Billboard, Parklife DC, Twangville, The Tinnitist, and SiriusXM among others have also showered the band with praise.

Songs like the country balladry of ‘Til You Can’t Go Back’ and the cool grooves of ‘Feeling The Love’ and the Motown-ish ‘Glad You Did’ show the band's diversity for songwriting.
“When the three of us get together, we love putting smiles on peoples’ faces and seeing them dancing and having a great time,”says Sarah.“Music is so powerful and making people happy and making memories is definitely a place that we want to be.”
