Billy Buchanan: A soulful singer songwriter, Billy Buchanan is as comfortable entertaining a crowd with just his voice and acoustic guitar as he is with a full band behind him. He uses humor and wit to communicate to his audiences, keeping them fully engaged during his performances. In his music, you can hear the influences of such diverse artists as John Mayer, Otis Redding, James Taylor, Ben Harper, Van Morrison, Amos Lee, Sam Cooke, Bill Withers, and Ray Lamontagne, to name a few. He also creatively incorporates original songs from his albums, Hold On and Transparent.

Buchanan, a St. Augustine, Florida resident, describes his music as a blend of “concrete and dirt". He explains, “I was raised in Cleveland, Ohio, but my family was originally from Georgia, and brought a lot of that culture with them. I would hear pop, hip-hop, and dance music on the street; but at home, and at my grandparents' houses, I would hear soul, gospel, and country. It all rubbed off on me".

A consummate professional, Buchanan has shared the stage with some amazing artists; including, Shawn Mullins, G. Love and Special Sauce, Jennifer Nettles (Sugarland), David Ryan Harris (John Mayer’s guitarist), KC and The Sunshine Band, Funky Meters, and Morris Day and The Time, to name a few. Billy Buchanan’s latest album, Hold On, is available at many digital music retailers. The songs “Brother Where You Going”, “Sleep Baby Sleep”, and “Hold On” are standout tracks. Recently, Buchanan was written up in Music Connection Magazine, Folio Weekly, I Want A Buzz Magazine, Ocala Star Banner, and The St. Augustine Record.
