Dove Award nominee singer/songwriter Billy Buchanan's mix of driving guitars, funky bass lines, soulful gritty vocals, hypnotic beats, and worshipful lyrics, are a contagious combination.
Having endured an abusive father, poverty, and eventually his parent's divorce, Billy encourages listeners with songs of worship, hope, and restoration. He describes his music as a blend of "concrete and dirt." He explains, "I was raised in Cleveland, OH, 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 grandparent's houses, I would hear soul, country, and gospel. It all rubbed off on me."
Billy is the worship leader at Good News Church in St. Augustine, Florida. After nearly a decade of touring and recording with his band Fusebox, Billy has just released his first solo album, "Transparent."
