‘Buckwheat’ producer tells Billboard that ‘I’m just as much a slave to my emotions as anybody else’
In a revealing piece for Billboard, singer-songwriter Buckwheat guitarist Josh Wieler reveals his frustrations with the corporate world that has dominated his life.
Wielers song “Dinner with the Boys” (originally released as “Dinners With the Boys,” and later remixed by The Mountain Goats) describes a relationship that began in early 2015, and ended in late 2016, when the band decided to end their partnership with Universal Music Group.
The story of that time, and Wiels story, begins with the band’s initial relationship with Universal, which began in January 2016, after a string of lackluster tours and the band was unable to find a touring partner.
In response, Wielermans band formed the self-titled band and released its debut EP, “We Are Buckwheats,” in late January.
In the following months, the band toured the world with local acts such as The Chieftains and The Flaming Lips.
But, Wiedermans first major recording opportunity came in early March, when he and The Mountain GOATS guitarist Jeff “Naughty” Van Nattaert were featured on an upcoming episode of HBO’s “Westworld.”
During the episode, they were featured in a scene with a young girl and her mother.
“The moment we got to see those two people together, we knew we wanted to go back to the studio,” Wiedemans says in the interview.
“So, we started recording the new song, ‘We Are The Buckwheaters,’ and we started to work with our engineer, Andrew Fennell.
We recorded that very day, and that was the first time that we got a chance to get together in a room and record in a studio.”
Wieders story continues in “Diners With The Boys.”
The song “We Were Buckwheatts” is a beautiful song about friendship and shared experiences.
It begins with a beautiful melody, and ends with the song’s hook.
“I’m the one that’s going to make you smile/When you say the right words, you know the right song,” Wielert says in “We We” that tells the story of the band and their journey to their new record.
The band members are now writing and recording the next two albums, “Dining With the Buckwheater” and “Diner With the Boy.”
Wielerman also recently wrote and performed the lead single for the new album, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 on March 25.
The song is titled “Diet and Friends,” and Wiederman has been working on writing lyrics for the song since he recorded the song with the Mountain GOAT in early February.
The video for “Dine With the BOYS” was released in March.
It features Wiedert singing with his bandmates and has been watched more than 100 million times.
Wiedercher has been touring and recording music since he started playing music in 2013, and his new album is available on iTunes.
“It’s been a whirlwind for us, but we’re really excited about the record,” Wiermers manager Jeff Fennells said in a statement to Billboard.
“We have been playing shows and performing shows for our fans and friends alike.
It’s been incredible to see how much everyone has embraced our music.
I have been so lucky to be involved in so many lives in so few years, and I’m so grateful to have been able to do what I love to do.”
