Buchanan is the project of UK-born Josh Simons in collaboration with friends.
The alt-indie band has released three EPs, two full-length studio albums & 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 & Carrie Underwood. The single was the first taste of Simons’ writing sessions at GOOD Music in Los Angeles with legendary producer Anthony Kilhoffer (Kanye West, JAY Z, Kid Cudi). Their next collaboration would be heard on CyHi The Prynce's debut album No Dope On Sundays where Simons & Kilhoffer co-wrote & produced final track I'm Fine featuring Travis Scott. This was followed up with production & writing on Allan Kingdom's Peanut Butter Prince, executive production & writing on Tre Capital album Hero & writing on Church Of The Lonely for Cobi. Simons also co-wrote & produced King IV track Basic in October 2018.
It follows two critically acclaimed studio albums, Human Spring & Pressure in an Empty Space. The latter was released in April 2016 & recorded in the UK with renowned producer Simon Duffy (Leftfield, Mr Hudson, 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 & incredibly moving piece of work."
Simons is also the CEO & co-founder of musician social-professional network Vampr.
