[INTRODUCING] THIRSTY THURSDAY WITH CANOPY CLIMBERS
Raise your PBR to this week's Thirsty Thursday act, Canopy Climbers. The indie electro-rock trio is comprised of Cory Nelson, Alan Thomas and Nathan Andrew Miller, all hailing from three different cities. Since the guys are not in one place at the same time, they're relying on this thing called the internet to pass tracks they're working on to each other. So smart! I featured their song "Stuck" in yesterday's Hump Day Mix and have been listening to that song as well as their other work on repeat. There's a light and smooth quality to their sound. Maybe there's something productive about being in your own space and not crammed in a room to make music. So I think Canopy Climbers is on to something! Band member Alan Thomas explains how making music in three different places works for them.
"With us all in three different places, working in the cloud is crucial. Our songs sometimes start as simple musical ideas that Cory will program and send to us, but most of the time he comes up with entire song ideas. From there we'll collaborate writing over text messages, voice memos, notes, etc. I'll lay a vocal down of what we come up with and send it to Cory. The songs live in demo land until we can all come together to record and play it live. We've definitely found our stride working this way. I'm not sure how it would work if we operated like most bands do, predominately writing from start to finish in a garage or a studio together. This is our normal."
If it ain't broke…
Well guys, keep up the great work. Really looking forward to hearing more from you and your upcoming record! For now, we'll just listen to all that we can from their SoundCloud page.
