Biography

The origins of the band now known as Fly Kite Canvas can be traced back to the fall of 2009. Comprised of friends Chris Cooney (vocals/keyboard), Donald Larson (guitar), Jacob Telford (bass/vocals) and Zack Rego (drums), the band performed under the name Scarlet, and quickly gained a local following with their unique sound and fresh compositions, profoundly mature for a band of such a young age. They remained active for the rest of their high school years, releasing an EP in the summer of 2010, and continuing to win over audiences show after show.

When it came time for college, rather than parting ways, the band stuck together, sacrificing their weekends for practices and gigs. Since then, their dedication has not wavered. Countless hours of writing, practicing, and performing has only strengthened the dynamic of the young quartet.

With a sound that's as imaginative and colorful as the name its given, Fly Kite Canvas combines powerful, tightly wound instrumentals with passionate vocals, creating songs that are inherently interesting and honest, sure to resonate with any listener. With a brand new release on the way, 2013 looks to be a promising year for this young group of musicians.

Lyrics

Concerns

Written By: Chris Cooney

Careful steps
Kept my eyes to my feet
Kept my eyes to the floor
Never meant
I've been clenching my teeth
Gonna kick down the door
It's a funny feeling
When you find you can't keep secrets from yourself
It's a strange sensation
When you're tearing off the skin of someone else

So there I went
But I can't help but feel like I've been here before
Some stories go in circles

Brighten your eyes
I say, and I sigh
But this world is full of wonder
And I've never felt so light

And all I've left
Well it's keeping me up, cause it's more than I thought
All I've kept
Well my head it spins with all that I've got
Say hello to letting go
Or you'll never know
You think I'm in trouble now
But I softly dream

And it's fine, it's fine
Cause this life is not the one you've lost
Trust me
