Joe Buchanan's Bio

A Texas native, Joe Buchanan makes Jewish Americana music. Grounded in the idea that there is always room at the table, Joe's music highlights the values, Torah, and history of the Jewish people to deliver stories steeped in the struggle and triumph of the human spirit, all while praising Gd for the goodness in life. One day, about 13 years into his marriage, Joe found out that his wife was Jewish.  With the discovery of his wife's heritage, their family started down a path that would change everything. From the first class and a million questions, to the mikvah and beyond, Judaism answered every spiritual question and brought an incredible amount of healing. In the five years since his conversion, Joe has truly found his voice in the history, Torah, and values of the Jewish people. He has toured the United States, leading an original Shabbat service, playing concerts, and giving a workshop called "Choosing to be Chosen" which is all around his conversion to Judaism and the reasons why so many are coming home. Combining elements of country, roots-rock, and folk, Joe’s music reaches deep to tell personal stories of struggle and triumph. This is feel-good, toe-tapping, Americana with a Jewish Soul. Join us as Joe shares his unique and fascinating story on Erev Shavuot.
