About King Canyon:
Melbourne guitarist James Ryan and vocalist Jimmy Cupples joined forces in early 2020 to create an exciting new band called King Canyon.
The blues-fuelled project is built on killer guitar riffs and soulful vocals, and recalls the powerful sounds of 60s Soul and the 70s British Blues invasion.
King Canyon have wasted no time in recording material including singles “Woman” and “Smoke Stack City” both receiving radio support, then promptly followed up with the soulful “Long Distance”, and a smokey acoustic blues version of the classic hit “Evie”.
Their latest single is the heavy guitar driven “Pretty Little Thing” as a precursor to their debut album planned for early / mid 2021.
Tickets are limited.
