Be treated to American Alt Country meets Folk and Westcoast harmonies this June as Canyon sing some of the greatest songs ever written. They will also be performing originals inspired by the ‘Laurel Canyon – Westcoast’ tradition of the 60’s and 70’s. You'll hear four-part harmonies set in songs about deserts, forests, raging water, open highways and broken hearts. Simply beautiful music!
America, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, The Band, Little Feat, Neil Young, Seals & Crofts, Emmy Lou Harris, Crosby Stills Nash & Young and Joni Mitchell stand as influences.
Canyon blends acoustic and electric instruments, at times singing around a single condenser mic in a traditional Bluegrass style. Formed in 2015 by singer, songwriter and guitarist Peter Chapman, Canyon features Louise Dempsey (yes, Paul’s sister), with Bruce Packard (Coolgrass, Concordia Mandolin Orchestra), Josh Bennett (Davidson Brothers, The Bombay Royale) and Robi Parolin (Aus Bee Gees Show). Canyon appeared live on ‘The Friday Revue’ with Brian Nankervis and Richelle Hunt and ‘Evenings’ with Lindy Burn, ABC 774. Canyon are set to headline the Outback Fusion festival in Newman East Pilbara Sep 2018 and do the Café Culture Vic Tour April-May 2019. They have played the Harvest N Graze Fest Docklands and Festival of Sails Geelong.
