Albums and singles

The latest album “The New Dawn” available “Release date: February 23, 2024” listen link and writeup here

Singles released from the upcoming albums “Heyana” and “The New Dawn”

Heyana is a hymn to Mother Earth and An anthem of musical prophecy for our times, this visionary song is themed around the wisdom of the indigenous people of the earth, with their simple ways of living and deep understanding that we must respect mother nature. The lyrics contain messages that hold resonance worldwide for the people of today in 2023. (Spotify Link)

PROGland “Heyana”, by Riki Buckingham, manages to bring together in a calm melody a weight and presence in the right balance between soft and imposing with an important message. With beautiful acoustic and guitar lines, the song, an alternative folk anthem, is an ode to good taste. From the beautiful vocal performances to the exceptional lyrics and the musical construction of the choruses and instrumental, “Hayena” sounds like an epic song, imposing and with weight, although without any guitar distortion. The song is definitely beautiful, with a melodic meaning that takes the listener to a sensitive, beautiful, and particular world, with each note played. Without a doubt, a must for fans of any type of good music, but especially those who are not afraid to be authentic and true no matter who it hurts

A Song that came together while sat with the guitar jamming at the bottom of the Tor in Glastonbury 2020
After a good summer of walking around wearing no shoes and enjoying time chatting to all the wonderful people there, sleeping in the tent and eating raw food my vibration was super high practically in bliss most days! and still able to feel and process the lows and move through it.

The song holds a message to not give up and that “The sun is always sweeter after winter days” and “I’m going to carry the light of the sun wherever I go” (Spotify Link)

A song expressing the love for the natural world and respect for what the Amazon rainforest brings and means to our planet πŸ™‚ (Spotify Link)

Uplifting, big sound, feel-good factor, funky, soulful, house party track “I’m Going Up” is Light-hearted, fun, Inspiring Celebration! The unique style of UK artist Riki Buckingham is his ability to bridge between different audiences with a background of fans in the new age/alternative scene with its deeper life messages into a broader mix of everyday people relating to the funkier side of his upbeat groove & sexy rhythmic tones. An original, classic let’s get up and ‘Have It’ number! (Spotify Link)

The Epic new dawn is a song like no other and completely different for most of what will be released in 2024 by other solo artists.

This 26 Minute epic is an ode and hymn to mother earth taking you on a psychedelic and prog meets Americana and blues journey, featuring heavy moments that remind us of the prog rock bands of the 70’s then into a meditation that feels like we are in the jungle with the native people and animals. The song is inspired by a 15 year healing journey, an 6 hour Ayahuasca trip to hell and a deep connection to nature and the ancestors. The Magnum Opus epic song was a joy to create and a ceremony in itself!

A song about a relationship of soul flame love between Kaylee and Riki who met on the beach in Lyme Regis on a warm summers day, the connection was magical and beautiful, they came together not just in love but to do great work with healing, sharing art and music and with a vision of a better world they grew food in the garden over lockdowns and tried to live in an alternative way.

Sometimes relationships as much as you really want to make things work, in the end have to part ways but the love that blossomed will always be forever, this song came from that experience. (Spotify Link)

“Riki has a delicate and vulnerable sensibility that he utilizes every time he approaches collaborating on a new musical piece with either the 7th Sense or with MILE. This gives each new song a unique value that really touches if not reprograms the human heart and that is incredibly rare in my book.

As a 26 year veteran of the music industry I know quality talent when I see it or more importantly feel it.
So If someone wants to really connect with a more liberated sense of self-expression that music affords as a powerful language then you can’t go past working with Riki Buckingham”
