Buffalo Bill (2000) – Sara Storer


What entails the Music Library Project?

This Australian country song was sent to me by mother many years ago and I took an immediate liking to it. Buffalo Bill is from Sara Storer’s debut studio album called Chasing Buffalo. Storer won the Best New Talent award at the Australian country music awards for Buffalo Bill.

And will the real Buffalo Bill please stand
Holding a beer and a gun in each hand
Those bright blue eyes give away more than he knows
When they sparkle as his story tells of chasin’ buffalo

Sara Storer was born on 6th of October 1973 which makes her my senior by 100 days or so which means I would call her Ma’am and stand-fast when she addressed me. She grew up on a huge cattle farm in Wemen, rural Victoria – Australia and completed her tertiary studies in Melbourne, becoming a teacher. Living in Camooweal, she met a retired water buffalo shooter, Harry Chandler, whose stories inspired her to write, Buffalo Bill, her first song.

Sara has since gone on to do six studio albums, three of which have have reached the top 30 of the ARIA charts. Despite her successful recording career, she has never lost her country calling. When in Darwin she married David O’Hare, a cattle buyer, in April 2012 and the couple have four children and live on a farm near Albury.

    A lovely song. A lovely video. And a very strong Australian accent!

    • Sara has a very strong Australian country accent indeed which I really liked upon hearing it. Many Australian singers try to put on this other accent to sway international audiences. Paul Kelly the great Australian folk singer said about her: ‘She doesn’t copy over-emotive, fake sincere twangy country singers from overseas. She’s found her own restraint and steel and lets her songs do their sweet, sly work’.

    That is damn good… sounds better than much of the music coming out of Nashville.

    • I can’t really compare since I listen to such scarce new music these days. But I’ll take your word for it Max, and that word is stronger than Oak lol given your knowledge of local music and where you are situated.

        Some of it is bad Matt…I call it…Pop with a twang. Songs about their tractors etc…

      • I gotcha. I couldn’t help but think of how music and ‘times’ have changed when I watched today Lynyrd Skynrd’s ‘Freebird’ in Oakland. Talk about an audience living in the moment. They just looked healthier, more animated and fresh. The sad thing is, this concert was just a month or so shy of the plane crash supposedly, but what a performance!:

        That is Bill Graham’s On The Green concerts…he had some great performers.

        They were more healthy…they got out and done things… I notice that also when I look at older film.

      • Yeh they seem more active, thinner and possessed more radiance. It seems after that time food processing/sugar and modern technology ‘shat’ on everyone.

        Bill Graham was mentioned a lot when I was in the Baptist church. How iconic that it was one of his concerts.

      • badfinger20 says:

        I agree with the food…and back then all those fats and sugars were not used as much…plus more exercise…

        Oh…wrong Bill Graham… There was a Billy Graham preacher and a Bill Graham rock promoter…

      • oh Ok , lol bill graham then
