"Canon Hill release debut LP “Mugshot”; New England pop punk prevails"

"Canon Hill have released a debut album of good New England pop punk that should take their careers beyond the Massachusetts state border. Mugshot contains a handful of rocking tracks infused with the Green Day-esque sound that Logan Tichnor and Ben Hayden strived to emulate when creating the band. But instead of coming off too much like Billie Joe, Mike, and Tre, Canon Hill have created and matured their own sound on Mugshot, which they polished and perfected with the help of Tim Carlin at SSN Studios in Brewster, a Cape Cod town on the opposite shore of Canon Hill’s hometown of Harwich... Fans of FIDLAR and Descendants will want to pay attention to these four guys from the Cape" - Caffeinated Jam

"Canon Hill’s ‘Smoking Gun’ Is Strong, Straightforward Bluesy Punk"

Canon Hill’s ‘Smoking Gun’ is strong, straightforward punk rock with bluesy tendencies... These guys do a good job of maintaining punk’s raw intensity while bringing a sense of compositional refinement to the genre. The vocals are a big part of this song’s success...Their rhythm section – especially the walking bass lines – really stand out on here. - Rock The Pigeon

"Canon Hill, “Late”, Music VIDEO"

...this young group with a hard edge, Canon Hill, played as part of the TD Bank Summer Concert Series... Canon Hill put on a high energy show while showcasing their songwriting talent.

Even while facing a bit of adversity from some of their own equipment, Canon Hill rose to the occasion and put on a fun, focused show with several original songs, like this one, “Late” from the band’s new CD, “Mugshot.” - Cape Cod Wave Magazine

"Harwich's Hard-Working Canon Hill Releases First Original Album"

"...we had First Night coming up and we had to figure out our lineup, so we threw Gabe on bass, and Noah's playing guitar, he's singing his little ditties, I'm singing my little ditties, and Ben's slapping the skins.”

“I hate that so much,” said Hayden, laughing. “Never say that again”

How did Canon Hill get on the road to producing an original album?

“Well, we played First Night, and then we thought hey, this is gonna work,” said Tichnor." - The Cape Cod Chronicle


Mugshot LP - 2018



Hailing from Massachusetts, Ben Hayden and Logan Tichnor founded Canon Hill in Ben's living room in 2013. They were 13 years old.  For the young Ben and Logan, both accomplished musicians, the goal was to write their own songs, creating a sound derived from the sounds of their music idols. Just one year into formation they were playing town festivals, and in 2016 they recorded their first demo EP, dubbed DARN IT. They were then 16 years old.  In 2017 they welcomed writer, guitarist and singer Noah Pelty to the band. With Noah aboard, they continued to play more high profile gigs, and hit the studio to record an EP titled NOSE DIVE, which they released in November, 2017. Gabe Duff then joined the band on bass, and since the EP, the band has brought their energized, raw sound, and ear candy hooks to, among others, the famed Beachcomber in Wellfleet, MA and the TD Bank Summer Concert Series. Their debut album, MUGSHOT, written, recorded and produced by Logan, Noah, Ben, and Gabe, is a powerful introduction to a band that, according to a recent review, will find fans well beyond the Massachusetts border.
