donnathebuffalo_4047-10.jpgDonna the Buffalo is twenty years young this year and as energized as ever.

Their 7th record, SILVERLINED, which was released, Tuesday, July 8, 2008 on Sugar Hill Records, builds on Donna the Buffalo’s signature sound — a bedrock of traditional mountain music infused with elements of Cajun, rock, folk, reggae and country. Throughout SILVERLINED, these undulating rhythms carry the original lyrics, and alternating vocals, of founding members Tara Nevins and Jeb Puryear along a powerful, mesmerizing current.

SILVERLINED’s first week at radio was a huge success. It was the #1 Most Added record in Americana radio, securing adds at the following stations: WUMB/Boston, MA, KPFT/Houston, TX, WNCW/Asheville, NC, WFPK/Louisville, KY, WNRN/Charlottesville, WMNF/Tampa, FL, KRFC/Ft. Collins, CO, WETS/Johnson City, TN, WIKX/Ft. Myers, FL, WSYC/Harrisburg, PA, WERU/Orland, ME, WTCR/Huntington, WV, WOUB/Athens, OH, and KSIL/Silver City, NM. Donna was #5 Most Added at Triple A with several stations adding “Locket And Key”, including: DMX/national satellite, WYEP/Pittsburgh, PA, WDST/Woodstock, NY, and WCBE/Columbus, OH. WNRN/Charlottesville added the single “Silverlined.”
