Next appearances on The Blues Train:No upcoming shows
Formed out of the ashes of 2020, Jimmy Cupples (vocals) and James Ryan (guitar) are the songwriting team behind King Canyon. The Melbourne duo spent much of last year writing and recording (when they weren’t live streaming), and even the months of lockdown didn’t stop them from working on new material.
Determined not to be pinned down, they agreed to let the music lead them. Wearing their influences on their sleeve, King Canyon have an instantly recognisable and widely appealing sound that distils the Soul of the 60s coupled with the blues rock invasion of the 70s. Yet they have perfectly molded that sound into a thoroughly contemporary pocket.
King Canyon reach new heights in their latest single ‘Gravity’ (releasing Nov 12) a much-needed dose of optimism and escapism in the post-lockdown world. This is the 6th single we’ve heard from King Canyon, which has proven to be yet another leap forward for the group in songwriting and production. There is an authority to the performance of Gravity that leaves you no choice but to sit up and listen, and the vocal delivery will have you hanging off every word.
