Jay Buchanan



Lead vocalist of the band “Rival Sons”, Jay Buchanan is a modern-day rock-and-roll heavyweight. California’s Rival Sons emerged in 2012 as hard rock classicists with a modern edge thanks to their breakout second album Pressure & Time. Establishing a strong collaborative bond with Nashville producer Dave Cobb to helm each of their albums, the Long Beach band enjoyed success at home in the U.S. while becoming perennial chart staples throughout much of Europe thanks to releases like 2014’s Great Western Valkyrie and 2016’s Hollow Bones.

Jay’s loyalty to Guild acoustics started at a young age, and spans throughout his entire career. He can most often be seen playing his D-55 in Antique Sunburst, but also notably his M-40 Troubadour, F-512 Maple twelve string, or an F-55 Jumbo.
