"Columbia Battle of the Bands"

"The night began with eventual winners, [Color on Canvas], whose Teddy Geiger-inspired alt-rock set an early tone for the musical portion of the evening. The band, fronted by Alexander Howard, rollicked through a very tight series of tunes that might eventually find their home in a Budweiser commercial. And for that, they received the highest score of the evening."

- Justin Goncalvas - The Bwog

"Fan Review"

"You guys are good inspiration for me right now in an inspiring guitarist so seeing you guys make great music really helps....keep it up!!!"

-Christian Albanese - Christian Albanese

"GRO's take on Alex Howard"

"Alexander Howard and I have begun to collaborate on various projects that range from film scores, to remixes, and to full length albums, with fantastic results. While the economy has gone down the drain, the past year of 2008 has been great to us and I’ve been happy to watch music that I helped create make its way to CNN, Good Morning America, as well as households around the world and it is an unbelievable feeling that I hope one that you too will experience in the near future."

Songs for Strangers



To defy classification: it's one of the most common goals in the music industry. Artists from every genre agree that no one likes being lumped into a category, and neither do we. Does our music stump the most incisive rock critic? Will the writers of Pitchfork loose sleep trying to invent a new genre to put us in? Of course not, but while you might think that one of our songs belongs to pop, rock, jazz, indie metal, sub indie rock prog jazz pop, or any other label conjured up by someone outside our rehearsal studio, please know that what we aim to create are songs that are true to themselves, and not to any scene or subcategory. Why can't it be possible for a song to simply exist in itself, free from the third party standards of genre? On that note, if you conclude that one of our tracks is a "pop" song, then know it's pop for pop's sake, and not because we want to be the next Maroon 5 (though wouldn't that be nice). If you come across a "rock" song, know that it's rock for rock's sake, and not because we want to be a Zeppelin tribute band. At its core, Color on Canvas is about allowing all of our influences to surface in the music, knowing that while some songs travel in different directions, they are all true in that they come from the same source.
