King Canyon Double A-Side Single

Blues infused rock band King Canyon has released a double A side single in ‘Gravity’/’Woman‘, through Social Family Records.

The band was brought to life in April 2020 by James Ryan (Guitar) and Jimmy Couples (Lead vocals), both veterans of the music industry who did not let the world coming to an abrupt stop, halt their ambitions as a band. Within their first year as a band, they had written more than a dozen songs, a testament to their affinity. Kit Riley (Bass) and Haydn Meggitt (Drums) complete the band with touring credits between the four of them extending to Deep PurpleMen at Work, Tina Arena, Michael Bublé, Daryl Braithwaite, The Badloves, Vika & Linda and many more. 
With live performance ruled out, King Canyon found new ways to adapt and engage with a whole new crowd. Through livestreams the band was able to have a direct link to their growing audience, allowing both feedback from their new fans and a more intimate relationship to foster. 
Since the doors of venues swung open last year, King Canyon have made it their mission to put themselves out there and make up for lost time, already performing at notable events and their never say die attitude, along with their artistic compatibility made them the perfect addition to the Social Family Records roster. “I’m very excited to welcome King Canyon to our international roster. The band features some of the best in Australia and their new material is brilliant – 2023 will be massive,” said CEO and president Mark Alexander-Erber. 

‘Gravity’ is the lead song that comes with a much-needed dose of optimism in the post-lockdown world. It’s about reaching for something more, even when (gravity) keeps pulling you down. There is an authority to the band’s performance that is intended to make you sit up and listen, with the vocal delivery will have you hanging off every word.
‘Woman’ is an upbeat riff-filled love song – King Canyon style. The track is consistent the whole way through with a clear adoration for the songwriters subject.
