About The Canvas People
Hailing from Austin, Texas, The Canvas People cultivate a blend of melodic indie and harmony driven alt-rock. Since their formation in 2014, the group has evolved into an eclectic rock group featuring pulsating guitars, subtle synthesizers, and booming three-part harmonies.
New single “Starlit” capitalizes on the 4-piece’s ability to weave illusive synths seamlessly into their already established musical dynamics. It serves as the perfect segue into a new record fueled by change. Musically, “Starlit” dances around the old and the new: catchy three-part vocal hooks accentuated by glossy synth pads and dreamy guitar riffs.
With the second single off of their new LP, Garden Party (Summer 2019), the group invites listeners to take a look at themselves, take a look at the world, and find a reason to celebrate. Lead singer Kyle Taylor explains, “You invest in a garden. You plant the seed, and you carefully tend to the fruit. You don’t know what, if anything, is going to come of all of it. But none of it is a waste because it’s all part of the same process. This record is about celebrating the process, both the gorgeous fruits and the inevitable death and decay.”
