SCARLET CANARY

“Scarlet Canary isn’t your ordinary little bird…” – Metal Recon

“Maddox and the crew wear their hearts on their sleeve, leaving their songs dripping with emotion.” –Colorado Music Buzz

With their most recent release of their album ‘Arise’ the band has been doing just that, rising through the ranks of the regional music scene. Early tours in the Midwest with Stitched Up Heart and City of the Weak generated the momentum that sparked a number of US Headlining tours going as far west as California and as far east Pennsylvania. 2016’s Tour Schedule consisted of 92 shows across 21 states, 46 cities, 47,906 Miles and 65 days’ worth of drive time. This tour history has earned the band performances with Skillet, Saliva, Gemini Syndrome, Lita Ford, and many more.

The band’s talent and work ethic over the last two years on the road has earned sponsorships from Westone in Ear Systems and Spector Bass. Always on time for load in and ready to throw down the band is fronted by the powerful vocals of Hannah Maddox which takes female fronted rock right up to the edge of metal. Deep driving toms and down-tuned guitars with riffs inspired by pop punk and metal core back Hannah’s hard rock driven vocals where it is not uncommon for her to scream at a climatic bridge.

“Arise” was produced by Martin Schroeder of No Heart Studios and had a peak chart position in the top 50 on Radio Contraband’s ‘Under the Radar’ charts in 2016. You can hear Scarlet Canary’s music played on FM Stations from Idaho to Wisconsin. Scarlet Canary’s music can also be found on Pandora, Spotify, Apple Music, and all other major online retailers.

“The band members in Scarlet Canary strive to put every ounce of passion and energy they can muster into the group’s live performances.” –Sioux City Journal
