The Color Canvas formed in Denver, Colorado in 2015 bound by vision, determination to keep live music plugged in, and by a sound that blazes the cycle of musicianship.
After several projects grew apart, Drummer DJ Amott of England crossed paths with Denver session guitarist, Scott Walker. Walker, former guitarist to the now defunct H*Wood, had material in the works making Amott a perfect fit. Walker had also been playing with local band Genre Theory as a vocalist/guitarist and decided to reach out to the former vocalist (Todd Pasternak) to weigh in on what he and Amott were creating. The writing process came much easier than anticipated and The Color Canvas was born. After nearly a year of writing and collaboration, they released the EP, "Just in Time," in the fall of of 2016 recorded at Blasting Room Studios in their home state of Colorado. In November of 2016 their hit single “Love Your Life” topped the Billboard Indie New Music Weekly Chart and Billboard Top 40 Indicator Chart at #7. The song “State of Being Mine” was featured on Amazon Video’s “Teens 101” series in the fall of 2017. The 3-piece is now working on 2 follow up singles, "Polar Attraction," and “Down," set to release in the fall/winter of 2018 promising a new direction and progression to listeners.
"This band represents the return to excellence with sheer power and great songs. They are the sum of all things to come!" - Joe Barbosa, Drummer/Producer, Queen Adreena/Black Orchid Empire
