Buckeye Knoll emerged from months spent backpacking in the wilderness of California. Songwriter Doug Streblow carried with him a notebook and acoustic guitar and weaved stories into songs that would become their debut full length album "People and Place". Released in the Spring of 2010, the album received flattering praise including the SF Chronicle calling Streblow and the album "The Real Deal" and "Unforgettable". Buckeye Knoll hit the road in support of the release playing over 70 shows in a year including a 2 week tour down to SXSW 2011 in Austin, TX.

This Fall the band, rounded out by bassist Graham Rolak and guitarist Alex Nitta is heading up to a 300 acre ranch near Yosemite to set up a studio in a large remote cabin to create the follow up record to "People and Place". Engineer and longtime friend of the band, Cian Riordan (Taking Back Sunday, John Cragie, Man/Miracle) will be taking on the role of producer and Eric Valentine (All American Rejects, Nickel Creek, Third Eye Blind) is set to master.

The yet to be titled second full length album will be released in the Summer of 2012 accompanied by a full US tour including another stop at the SXSW festival in Austin.

Founded with the collaborative spirit as Wilco, the confessional sincerity of Ryan Adams and the dynamic folk sound ofArcade Fire, Mr. Kind is four guys who are way too nice to each other.

They are honored to present their first release: OK. The roots of principal songwriter Brian Bergeron are evident in “The Artist”, albeit with a more compelling and energetic arrangement. The band wades into propulsive indie rock with the title track “You’re OK” and “Take Care”, which echo the raw and stripped down studio aesthetic of Dr. Dog and Spoon. The pulse and sonic landscape of “Homeostasis” echoes The National and The Killers while the lyrics have a direct emotive appeal. Finally, with the urgency found on “The Restless Release”, Mr. Kind echoes all of the aforementioned influences with a signature that is very much individual to this particular amalgamation of collaborators.
“Every song is so delicate – I feel like if I don’t play just right,
they might break.” This is how lead guitarist, Andrew Arcadi,
describes Anadel’s music. The sound of this six member band
lives up to these words with their textured and unique music.
With a hint of many genres, American folk, blues, alternative,
indie and classical, this collective of styles becomes something
entirely different.
