“Since emerging three years back as an acoustic trio anchored around the vocals of Joelle Labert, fleshed out by the guitars of Derek Bassett and the engine-room rumblings of bassist Michael Tinsmon, Buffalo's Flatbed has evolved into a full-blown celebration of Americana and roots-rock. The band's self-titled debut reveals an instantly likable, home-brewed, country-based collection of songs splitting the difference between the 'Cosmic American Music' of Gram Parsons and New Riders of the Purple Sage and the folk-based country of Emmylou Harris. In mandolin/dobro man John F. Brady, drummer Ted Chubbuck Jr. and Telecaster 'chicken-picker' Daniel Smith, the Bassett-Labert-Tinsmon core has found an eminently talented tribe of like-minded players to solidify the Flatbed sound. The result is the finest roots-rock collective to emerge from our neck of the woods since the wonderful Steam Donkeys first started kicking in the stalls.”
