Becky Buller is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and producer from St. James, Minn., who has traipsed the world over performing bluegrass/Americana/roots music to fund her insatiable habit of songwriting. Her compositions can be heard on records by Ricky Skaggs, Rhonda Vincent, and Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, to name just a few. She wrote the title cut of Special Consensus’ album Scratch Gravel Road, a 2013 Bluegrass Album Of The Year Grammy nominee.

She performs with the Daughters of Bluegrass when scheduling allows. She is currently in the studio finishing up her third solo album, ‘Tween Earth And Sky, which will be released on the Dark Shadow Recording label in Fall of 2014. Her other two solo albums are: Little Bird (Bell Buckle Records, 2004), Rest My Weary Feet (SRS 2000). Becky can also be heard on Pickin’ Like A Girl (Blue Circle, 2013), the latest album by the Daughters of Bluegrass as well as Flying (Organic, 2013) from Darin & Brooke Aldridge. In her spare time, Becky co-hosts Thunder Radio’s Bluegrass Crossroads Show on WMSR in Manchester, Tenn., and teaches instrumental music.
