About Grant Lee Buffalo
Grant Lee Buffalo lyrics

Grant Lee Buffalo was a rock band based in Los Angeles, California, consisting of Grant-Lee Phillips (vocals and guitar), Paul Kimble (bass) and Joey Peters (drums). All three were previously members of another Los Angeles band, Shiva Burlesque. As Grant Lee Buffalo, they released four albums: Fuzzy (1993), Mighty Joe Moon (1994), Copperopolis (1996) and Jubilee (1998) (the latter without Kimble who had left the band the previous year). In the United States, the band may perhaps best be remembered for their 1998 single, ?Truly, Truly? which received extensive airplay.


After the release of Jubilee, the band broke up. Phillips continues to pursue a solo career. In 2001, Storm Hymnal, a compilation of singles, album tracks and rarities was released.


Grant Lee Buffalo had an Americana tinged sound, clearly influenced by the likes of Neil Young and elements of old-fashioned country music, and often tackled political and social issues in their lyrics. For example, ?Lone Star Song? from Mighty Joe Moon references the infamous Waco siege and ?Crackdown? from Copperopolis references the murder of Yoshihiro Hattori as well as the Oklahoma City bombing. They toured with major bands of the early-to-mid 1990s such as R.E.M., Pearl Jam and the Smashing Pumpkins.
