Interview with Delaney Buffett

Delaney Buffett is a special guest on The Paul Leslie Hour. If there was one good thing about 2020, it is the “Song You Don’t Know By Heart” video series. It’s been one of the audio visual media events of the year.

For singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett, the concept was simple and unprecedented. He would tell the story behind one of his lesser-known songs and then perform it “unplugged.” The director and mysterious woman behind the project is filmmaker Delaney Buffett.

Talk about an interesting and thought-provoking interview. At times profound and other times more entertaining, it was great to get to know Delaney Buffett. Watch the video interview right here on The Paul Leslie Hour.

  1. Very much enjoyed getting to know more about Delaney other than just that she talks to statues. I am very much a diehard Parrothead having seen her dad in concert 35 times but I have to say that the SYDKBH series took my appreciation of all things Buffett to another level. Delaney did an excellent job of prompting JB in such a way as to bring to life the stories behind the songs that we have always wanted to hear. I can’t wait to listen to the CD and do hope there will be more like it down the road.

    1. It’s a nice idea, and the album no doubt will be great, but concert goers have been hearing these wonderful tunes for years. They are hardly obscure.

  2. Please, let’s give a tip of our fin-hats to both Paul Leslie and Delaney Buffett for this very enjoyable and enlightening conversation. Frankly, the SYDKBY was somewhat of a meh re-hash of things that (surprise!) has brought us to another rehash of old materials, PLUS the opportunity to purchase yet another t-shirt. It was fascinating to discover just how much Delaney learned of her dad’s catalogue, as well as her mom’s involvement in earlier songs, and that she pretty much produced the whole series with her cell phone. While the result is sometimes fascinating (i.e., the “woman” going crazy on Caroline Street was not at all a “woman”), it is far beyond the useless craptrap that JB put together for that “treasures” compilation last year. In that regard, Delaney brought out some good stuff. And by the same token, Paul brought out a lot of sincere material from Delaney, who demonstrated that she is an educated and articulate young woman. Thanks to both of them.
