"Kim Buchanan throws a little bit of everything into her musical mix- pop, jazz, and folk. Her voice has been compared to that of Sarah McLachlan. But where she really shines is her original music. Buchanan has the gift of transforming the mundane into the beautiful, taking events from every day life and making something magical out of them." - Grant Britt
Kim Buchanan, a singer/songwriter from North Carolina, creates an intimacy with her audiences through her music, lyrics and the emotion she conveys with her powerful, yet soulful, vocal abilities.
Her second CD, Illusions, released April 2002, is a strong follow-up to her nationally recognized debut CD Will I Ever Know?
Illusions contains 14 tracks, including 3 covers songs - “White Rabbit”, by Grace Slick; “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”, by George Harrison; and “She Moved Through The Fair”, a traditional Celtic song. The underlying theme of Illusions carries over to each song.
Will I Ever Know? was chosen by the Independent Weekly, a NC entertainment magazine, as one of 1998’s best releases, and received International air play on acoustic and folk radio shows. Buchanan also received the Emerging Artist Grant from the Durham Arts Council in 1999-2000, and was a featured artist on mp3.com. Her music ranked #1 on MP3.com in the acoustic genre for that period, and remained in the top 25 for close to a year.
Kim has been joined on-stage since the fall of 1999 by a wonderful percussionist ~ Patrick-jubal Creech (jubal) ~ who adds not only color and texture, but also some incredible & very tasteful rhythms to her heart-felt and observational songs. In July of 2001, Michael Hsu came to "jam" one night, and was recruited to play as many gigs as he could with Kim. Mike´s skill as a violinist was beyond anything Kim could have imagined, and is featured prominently on the new CD, ILLUSIONS.
Whether watching Kim as she plays solo, or with talented accompanist, you are insured of receiving a magical performance.
