Buck Meek “Haunted Mountain” – Stephanie’s DJ Pick Of The Week


Stephanie’s DJ pick this week is “Haunted Mountain” by Buck Meek! This feel good tune’s unique mix of Appalachian influenced vocals and modern instrumentals makes you want to play it again.

The Texas born guitarist and singer/songwriter attended Berklee College Of Music, and after graduating formed the band Big Thief. After five studio albums and a Grammy nomination for best alternative music album, Meek continued on to release his debut solo album Buck Meek. After the drop of Two Saviors in 2021, Meek got to work on his new album Haunted Mountain. Haunted Mountain is described as being “about love and something other. Something bigger than love, something that doesn’t challenge love exactly but stands in contrast to it. A soulfulness, or a soul-seeking fullness.”

Meek’s lead single, “Haunted Mountain” was written by Meek and Jolie Holland. Holland wrote the first two verses as a love letter to Mount Shasta in northern California, Meek writing the final verse. “It’s about being humbled by the thing you’re drawing power from only at which point an actual, fair relationship begins,” he says. With sweet lyrics and an earnest vocal, this track gets us excited for the album release August 25th.
