Ten years after his death by accidental drowning the legacy of Jeff Buckley remains profound yet enigmatic. He tapped into almost every facet of music and culled them together into his own ethereal design. Whether they were his original compositions or reworked covers, Buckley’s songs dripped with a thick mysterious beauty only he was able to capture.
