I'm Sure It Wouldn't Do

Jerry Oliver

I've been writing a bunch of new tunes over the last couple years and started demoing some of them about a year ago at Back Of The Head Studios in Royal, Arkansas. Now we're starting to flesh some of them out and have started recording more fresh tracks at Eastwood Studios in Nashville. It feels like a new official album is in the works but in the meantime we'll be releasing some of the Arkansas tracks and some stripped down demo versions as part of a new series called The Buddha Tree Singles. As a Bandcamp fan club member you'll be among the first to hear any of this stuff. So please enjoy this first release...I'm Sure It Wouldn't Do.

Jet Engine, Jet Engine

Jerry Oliver

This track was written in honor of our friend and teacher the late great Nashville underground rock god Dave Cloud. Dave loved my cannabis one hitter, especially during his final days and christened it "The Jet Engine." Please enjoy.

The Wood and the Spark

Jerry Oliver

This is the second in a two album collection of original songs recorded in three sessions in 2014 and 2015.
These performances were recorded totally solo in one take. Jerry O just the way you get him live. No overdubs, doubled vocals or editing tricks. Just a good room, nice mics and a talented engineer to capture Jerry, his guitar and a few pedals while he paints these stories of heritage, loss, inspiration and the big question of existence.

Believe - Out Now!

Believe - Out Now!

"Jerry Oliver's new album has been captivating me lately. When I discover new music I often want it to take me on a journey. First it challenges and sometimes disturbs before one little moment completely wins me over. Jerry's record has definitely passed that test. Jerry has been quietly working on his craft for years and deserves a much larger audience. Hopefully this record will get him just that. " 

Jim Reilley/The New Dylans
 

Nashville, are you ready for Americana with a bad ass, trippy guitar? I hope so. Cause he's here.” 
- DJ Glenn McReynolds, WRFN Radio Free Nashville (Lunch With Glenn McReynolds) (Dec 14, 2015) 
 

Believe

Jerry Oliver

For several years fans have been asking Jerry if he has an album of original songs recorded the way they usually hear him live, which is solo; one guitar, one voice and maybe some harmonica here and there. This is that album and there is another one already done and ready to follow up.
The fifteen songs spanning the two releases were recorded in three sessions with Jerry's long time friend and collaborator Pepe as engineer and producer. The first session took place at Jerry's Birdwatcher Studio in Nashville over a weekend in spring 2014. The bulk of the material was recorded over four days in October 2014 at Pepe's Back Of The Head Studio in Arkansas. We fixed a couple things and re-recorded a couple songs in January 2015 at Back Of The Head and then Pepe got to mixing.
We hope this collection of songs written over the last four years takes you on a journey of sound and story beginning with the album Believe. These songs center on relationships and our relationships with the world around us and how it all affects what we believe or don't believe.
