Infusing elements of lucid, indie space rock and harmony-driven alt-rock, Canvas People produces a distinctly unique brand of new age music. Reminiscent of contemporary acts such as Kings Of Leon, Death Cab For Cutie, and My Morning Jacket, Canvas People creates an enchanting blend of booming 3 part harmonies and shaded, seductive indie rock grooves.

Based out of Austin, TX, the 4-piece rock group is a spot-on representation of the quality original music coming out of the “live music capitol of the world”. Their upcoming record City Boy Slump perfectly captures this young band’s ability to channel classic, sophisticated musical ideas, and mold them into entrancingly captivating modern rock songs. Lead single, “Astronaut”, takes listeners on a journey through pulsating drum grooves and melancholic, syncopated guitar riffs, while laid back chiller “Parking Lot” incites memories of the nostalgic indie rock era of the late 90s.

Lead singer, Kyle Taylor, commented on the group’s progression since their release of "Sirens" in 2014: “At its conception, Canvas People was a deliberate effort to push our music into the experimental folk genre, but as we’ve progressed and as the new EP indicates, we’ve returned to our indie rock roots, with a greater emphasis on group composition and energetic rock performance.”

Joining Taylor is Wes Maxwell on lead guitar/backing vocals, Luke Williams on bass/backing vocals, and Pat Epley on drums. Williams and Maxwell’s harmonies coupled with Epley’s tasteful drumming provide the perfect back drop to lead singer Kyle Taylor’s superbly crafted songwriting.

Canvas People will be hitting the road later this year in support of their new release, City Boy Slump. Stay tuned to see where these guys go; definitely an act worth watching.
