Canary oh Canary is Josie Davis – bass, Michael Harl – guitar and vocals and Mark Hutcherson - drums
Canary oh Canary came together out of what was, literally, the luck of the draw. In July of 2010 Michael Harl’s and Josie Davis’ names were drawn from a hat along with three others at an event known as Rock Lotto. The seed for what is currently Canary oh Canary had been planted. Recognizing similarities in their approach to music and a desire to explore possibilities within, the two continued to collaborate beyond Rock Lotto, keeping the name Canary oh Canary.
Mark Hutcherson joined the band in December 2011 bringing with him a rock solid foundation of Krautrock inspired beats delivered with ferocity and technical style. Josie’s minimalist, groove heavy bass lines allow Michael’s sparse garage/surf guitar riffs and moody vocal styling to weave in and out creating an audio aesthetic that is unique to Canary oh Canary. It’s a well-balanced sound that hangs on the space between reveling in the quiet moments while celebrating the wall of sound crescendo. Each member contributes equally and is informed by one another in the conversations that are songs.
Known for performances of mesmerizing intensity, Canary oh Canary has developed a reputation as a must see live band that will have one transfixed, wide eyed with excitement and completely enveloped by the moment.
Canary oh Canary released their debut E.P. “Last Night In Sunway Knolls” August 2011 and the “Live Radio” single March 2012. Both are available at http://canaryohcanary.bandcamp.com/. They have plans for a full length entitled “Sleep” to be released July 11, 2013.
