Britton Buchanan – NBC’s The Voice Runner-up
FORMER VOICE CONTESTANT BRITTON BUCHANAN’S LAST HOME TOWN CONCERT BEFORE MOVE TO L.A.
Sanford, NC – Season 14 runner-up of NBC’s The Voice, Britton Buchanan will take the stage one last time in his small home town of Sanford, NC before moving to the big city of Los Angeles, California to pursue his singing career. He will be joined on stage by fellow Sanford native Taylor Phillips, who has written hit songs for Luke Combs and Kane Brown, and some other Voice contestants – WILKES and Pryor Baird. This one of a kind concert will take place at the Temple Theatre, 120 Carthage Street, in downtown Sanford on Friday, January 4, 2018 at 7:30pm. All tickets are reserved seating and only $25 each and can be purchased at www.brittonbuchanan.com.
It was Britton’s jaw-dropping performances on NBC’s “The Voice” that helped him gain his fanbase and put the artist in the spotlight. He worked with superstar Alicia Keys and shocked the nation with his amazing covers of songs like Calum Scott’s “Dancing on my Own” and “What’s Love Got to Do With It” by Tina Turner. He finished the show as the season 14 runner-up.
Prior to his appearance on The Voice, it was Britton’s songwriting talent that gave him the opportunity to record with renowned engineer John Davenport, whose credits include Robert Palmer’s “Riptide” and Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A” album.
Britton picked up guitar at an early age and it ignited into his never-ending passion for singing and songwriting. His parents introduced him to 70s and 80s rock and folk music and Britton immediately determined it was the music he loved. He joined a classic rock band at age 13 and often covered songs by his favorite artist Bruce Springsteen, all while penning his own music.
Britton says, “I’m a barefoot, peace-loving, rock-singing hippy at heart. I want to keep this old school sound that makes me feel so good and bring it with me into the new school.”
Britton will leave North Carolina for Los Angeles, California in early January 2019 where he will oversee the completion of his first studio album with a release date expected to be announced soon.
