Buchanan is the project of English-born Josh Simons in collaboration with friends.
The alt-indie band has released three EPs, two full-length studio albums and one live album since its inception in May 2010. Most recent single The Beep Test was released in November 2016 ahead of the band's sold-out arena support slots with Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood. The single was the first taste of Simons’ recent writing sessions at GOOD Music in Los Angeles with legendary producer Anthony Kilhoffer (all seven Kanye West albums). Their next collaboration could be heard on CyHi The Prynce's debut album No Dope On Sundays where Simons and Kilhoffer co-wrote and produced final track I'm Fine featuring Travis Scott. This was followed up with production and writing duties on Allan Kingdom's Peanut Butter Prince album.
It follows two critically acclaimed studio albums, Human Spring and Pressure in an Empty Space. The latter was released in April 2016 and recorded in the UK with renowned producer Simon Duffy (Leftfield, Mr Hudson, Dirty Vegas and Missy Elliott). The album follows Simons during the compounding experiences of the breakdown of a committed relationship whilst dealing with an obscure form of cancer in 2014, which Tone Deaf described as "a stunning and incredibly moving piece of work." Lead single, Coming Down, debuted at No. 29 in the UK Music Week Pop Charts.
Simons is also the CEO and co-founder of musician social-professional network Vampr.
