The band Senses Fail began when Garrett Zablocki posted an internet advertisement to recruit members for the band. Buddy found this advertisement and the duo started working together, writing songs. Dave Miller and James Gill soon joined the band, however, disagreement with James led to him to be replaced by Mike Glita. The band’s name Senses Fail came from a concept of Hinduism of removing attachments to anything through letting your senses fail. The band started to earn popularity locally, and then started to record songs. They released the EP “From the Depths of Dreams” through ECA Records in 2002. The independent release did very well, and then they were signed to Drive-Thru Records a year later. Another EP was re-released and found a bit of success, so the band also started touring.

Neilsen and the band then worked on their debut album – “Let It Enfold You” – with the label Vagrant Records, which proved a success in the United States, selling 400,000 copies. The album saw the release of two songs including “Buried a Lie” which found mainstream success. The band started appearing in popular magazines, as their net worth increased quickly. They toured to support the release, and played with other popular bands such as My Chemical Romance. In 2005, the album was reissued, after which Dave Miller would leave the band to be replaced by Heath Saraceno.

They then took a break, before working on their second album called “Still Searching” which reduced the aggression of their previous songs; the song “Can’t Be Saved” would be featured as part of the video game “Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock”. The band toured once again to support the album.

Buddy then worked on releasing the album “Life Is Not a Waiting Room” for Senses Fail, the release of which in 2008 led them to tour once again. Two years later, they recorded another album called “The Fire”, which was released through Hassle Records. In 2011, they began working on another album called “Follow Your Bliss: The Best of Senses Fail”, which featured music from their previous album as well as four new songs. The following year, they then concentrated on another full length album called “Renacer”, which was released in 201, after which Buddy would focus on several side projects, including with the band Speak The Truth… Even If Your Voice Shakes.

In 2016, Nielsen then worked on an acoustic EP with Senses Fail. They still continue to tour and make music.

For his personal life, it is known that Buddy has struggled with sexual addiction, anxiety, and depression as stated in interviews. However, he recently indicated that he wanted to spend his life with his (un-named) girlfriend. His mother is actress Lisa Brown who directed several Senses Fail music videos including “Buried a Lie”.
