Canyon Spells blend indie folk, classic rock, and alt-rock sensibilities in a melodic mélange that easily slides from heavy riffs to nimble baroque pop.
Founding members Jimmie Linville and Daniel Pingrey are from Baraboo, Wisconsin, a small town just north of Madison. The high-school friends relocated to the larger college town in 2009 and that's when they formed Daniel & the Lion. The group released two albums -- Sweet Teeth and Death Head -- but the pair eventually relocated to Nashville, added a new member in Michaela Thomas, and adopted a new name, Canyon Spells. Under that name, the group released the full-length Now That We're Gone in March of 2016. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
