Canyon Family

Canyon Family are a five piece band, from Sheffield UK, who play sun drenched Americana. Listen to two other beautiful home demos recorded around various kitchen tables and in bedrooms across Sheffield, spring/summer 2012 as well as other Canyon Family tracks over at Soundcloud
Canyon Family say…
Remember those summers when you ran through the long grass and the sun warmed your young skin? When you swam in the ocean all day and camped beneath a cloudless sky at night, naming constellations? When you drank too much cider and the world span and your friends held your hair back? Singing along to TLC records in your friend’s car on Saturday nights?

A love of classic country duets and folk ballads from both sides of the Atlantic has influenced the sound. A patchwork of voices and simply plucked acoustic guitar underpins all their work, hinting at sixties folk waifs such as Vashti Bunyan and Karen Dalton as well as tragic country idols such as Townes Van Zandt and Gram Parsons. It’s the shuffle beat, the lilt in the voice, the glint in the eye. Its driving over the Snake Pass on a warm summer evening, with a well worn tape of “Rumours” on constant rotation.

The new words of the day are: “Sea”, “Highway”, “Road trip” and “Shotgun”.
