20 YEARS SINCE JEFF BUCKLEY'S PASSING.
It's hard to believe 20 years have gone since Jeff Buckley's untimely passing. His recordings are still relevant today as they were back then and his talent still shines. Wall Of Sound published a beautiful catalogue of his personal photographer and friend Merri Cyr's photographs, called Jeff Buckley. So real. The book accompanied her 2014 exhibition at our gallery and is still available. You can order it emailing us at email@example.com.
