Buddy was born in Prince George, BC, and raised in the small sawmill community of
“Shelley” just east of the City.
At the age of two, Buddy started to sing before he could talk. His father, Ernie
Gouchie, heard him singing, “I hear the Train a comin’, comin’ ‘round the bend” and
knew that his son would be a great talent one day.
At the age of five, Buddy’s father bought him a guitar and taught him a few chords.
The love for country music began to bloom in Buddy’s heart.
At the age of eight, Buddy won “1st Place” in a talent show held in conjunction with
two radio stations in Prince George. He got his picture in the newspaper and became
a celebrity with his fellow classmates.When Buddy was 19 he began to play the circuit with his first band called “The
Silver City Outlaws”.
Traditional country music artists like Merle, George, and Hank have always been
Buddy’s heroes and you can hear it in his voice when he sings. He started writing
songs in 1999 when he was faced with the news of his father’s cancer. Buddy sat
down and wrote “A Father’s Love”.
Buddy continues to write about his family and life’s many up’s and down’s. “Things
That Matter” marks a turning point in Buddy’s life and career and is a testament to
his maturity as an artist.
