Since 2014, Eleanor Buckland has been one-third of Lula Wiles, the Boston-based folk-rock trio that has become an acoustic music scene favorite with their three critically hailed albums. For much of this time, however, Buckland was also working on another musical project – her own album. You Don’t Have To Know (due on October 29) spotlights a different side of Buckland’s musical interests as it sets her deeply personal songs against inventive indie rock arrangements. On You Don’t Have To Know, Buckland takes listeners on an emotional journey as her songs address love complicated and love lost, explore struggles with depression and insecurity, and grapple with feelings of uncertainty and helplessness. Or as Buckland succinctly describes the album: “It’s about me trying to figure out who I am and who I was at that time.” You Don’t Have To Know, however, didn’t happen because Buckland simply wanted to rock out. “I think a lot of the album has to do with feeling empowered as a woman,” she states. “It was thrilling to discover my singular voice as an artist in a way I never had before. And in the process of writing these songs about figuring myself out, I wound up knowing myself a lot better.”
