The best kept secret in music


"Performing Songwriter Magazine"

"If you're searching for a record equally at home in a 1930's speakeasy or a post-punk New York club, look no further" - Performing Songwriter Magazine

"Buffalo News"

"...surely one of the strongest collections of original songs to see independent release...Literate, witty, swinging, musical as all get out"

- Buffalo News

"The Beast"

"Cannon's music is rare enough to make an android smile and bob his head"

- The Beast

"Buffalo Rising"

..."by far the most polished, professional sounding album I have heard from a Buffalonian since… I don't even know when" - Buffalo Rising

"Nightlife Magazine"

"Cynics and fans of dark humor rejoice...Lyrically and musically stunning...a model of perfection"
- Nightlife Magazine


"Model Citizen" - 2007 Top Hat Records

Feeling a bit camera shy


The follow up record to the critically acclaimed ‘Suitcase Funeral’, Chris Cannon’s new album ‘Model Citizen’, blends urban lyricism with rock, blues, doo-wop and R+B to create a sound which has been described as a “new form of the blues” and has people labeling him as “the voice of the down-trodden”. Musically and lyrically, the songs take listeners on a ride through rainy back alleys (“Calamity”), a pub of drunken criminals (“Life of Crime”), a 1970’s R+B station (“Back in the Strangeness”) and personal confession (“Model Citizen”).
