Guitarist James Ryan and vocalist Jimmy Cupples formed KING CANYON in 2020 as the world began to shut down. Ironically, the project would never have come alive if not for Covid.
Ryan and Cupples could focus entirely on collaborating online. As their musical partnership developed, they realised it was something special.
KING CANYON is heavily influenced by their love of 60’s soul and the blues-rock sounds of the 70’s.
The pair over the ensuing years, composed and released a string of high-quality tracks as ‘Woman’, ‘Gravity’, ‘Smoke Stack City’, ‘Angel In Disguise’ and many more.
The band’s eighth single, ‘Good Old Days’, is a rocking feel-good track that evokes colourful memories of growing up in the 70’s and 80’s when panel vans, drive-ins, muddy music festivals, cotton shirts, sandals, cassette players, corduroy pants and weekends down the coast were all the rage!
