As a member of PEI’s Paper Lions, Colin Buchanan has been creating music professionally since the age of 18. Relentlessly touring the continent with his childhood friends and bandmates has shaped who he is today and has given him a world class education in all things music.
Falling in love with the studio early in his career, there was no doubt it was where he would find his home years later. A multi-instrumentalist , he enters every session with a deep understanding for songwriting and pop arrangement. Having worked alongside such industry heavyweights as Andrew Maurey (Lizzo, Shawn Mendes), Howard Reddekopp (Tegan and Sara, New Pornographers) and Dan Weston (Shad, Attack In Black) he has learned much in his time behind the desk. A recent trip to France to study at Studio La Fabrique with Gregg Wells (Adele, Keith Urban, One Republic) has further inspired the young producer to keep pushing himself to create better music.
Besides working with bands and solo artists, the past year has seen a foray into TV and film, with composition/producer credits for a national Telus campaign as well as spots for Furrow Creative (PEI Lobster, PEI Potatoes and Tourism PEI).
