Lloyd Buchanan is rooted in Gospel and the Blues. His connection to the Hammond organ began at a very early age in church accompanying his mother. This indoctrination gave way to formal studies at LaGrange College where he expanded his musical vocabulary going deep into jazz improvisation under the tutelage of pianist/composer, Randy Hoexter and guitarist, Trey Wright.
Lloyd is currently touring with the Alabama Shakes around the world. Over the last ten years, he has toured domestically and internationally with the Heavy, Oleta Adams and A7 as well as short stints with Joe, Bishop Rance Allen, Jon B, Wet Willie, Calvin Richardson, Joe Horness, Darwin Hobbs and William Murphy.
You’ve seen Lloyd’s smiling face on the BBC, Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Last Call with Carson Daily, Black Entertainment Television (BET), Conan, the Odyssey Network and the Word Network.
