Joe Buchanan

Texas born and southern raised, Joe Buchanan makes Country Music that is steeped in Torah. He struggled with religion until one day outside of the Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C. and 13 years into their marriage, his wife told him that she was Jewish. They explored Judaism as a family and it changed everything, eventually leading to his conversion and the debut album, Unbroken. Since then, he's toured the U.S., leading an original Shabbat service, concerts, and workshops. Joe also serves as an artist in residence for communities, guiding an entire weekend of prayer and song. He's been featured at numerous conferences and festivals, as well as synagogues and venues across this great land. The goal of his music is to help drive connection to what connects us all and to hold the door for other seekers.  His newest album, Back from Babylon, is arriving in 2019.
