Geoff Buell / Bio

Born in Buffalo, WY Geoff was blessed with a musical family, at the age of two his family moved to Nashville, TN to pursue his mom’s (Linda Buell) dream of being a songwriter. The Buell’s had a homemade studio used to demo Linda’s songs where as a young kid Geoff was introduced to future superstars such as Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, Joe Diffie, Joy Lynn White and other great musicians. Everybody who hung out at the Buell’s always said “he is going to be a musician” because he was always dragging around a guitar with no strings on it that his dad had made him for his birthday. At a young age Geoff had a talent for learning songs by the time it got done playing. Linda had some success in Nashville having songs recorded by Janie Frickie, Clinton Gregory, Billy Ray Cyrus, Ray Price, and Johny paycheck. After 9 years in Nashville the Buell’s decided to get out of the city and move back home to Buffalo, WY, where Geoff excelled in sports such as Football, Basketball, and Wrestling. Geoff was a District Champion wrestler, and third in the eastern region, he was also named all-conference honorable mention his senior year at Buffalo High School. After moving to Wyoming Geoff discovered his love for hunting, fishing, camping, rodeo, and pretty much anything outdoors. After graduating High School Geoff had no interest in going to College, so he moved to Memphis to take a job as a Cable TV technician. After watching The Younger Brothers Band in Wyoming over New Years Eve Geoff’s interest in country music was re-sparked. Geoff made the move to Nashville in 2006 to pursue a career in country music. After hearing the intro on Josh Turner’s song “Your Man” Geoff fell in love with the pedal steel guitar, so he contacted one of the best in the business, and long time friend of the family Jim Vest, Vest agreed to get him started, and give him lessons. During one of his lessons Jim made him sing while he was playing and Geoff’s singing caught Jim’s attention, shortly after that they went in the studio and recorded four songs. Geoff took his demos home to Wyoming to play for his family and friends, his sister wanted a copy of her own, so Geoff made her a copy, and the next day she told him the news that she had taken it to the radio station and they agreed to play it. The next week Geoff’s song “White Collar Blues” became KLGT’s most requested song. Geoff has shared the stage with country greats such as, The Western Underground, Clinton Gregory, Jay Demarcus (Rascal Flats), Rodney Atkins, and Lady Antebelum.
