Painted Canyon: a solid combination of rock and Americana.

Painted Canyon is a heartland rock band hailing from Chicago, Illinois.
They have recently released a collection of new tracks that seamlessly blend Americana, roots, and heartland rock.

The first track “Fear” has a driving momentum that has a distinctly cinematic feel. The raw and gritty country vibe of this number is reminiscent of artists such as Lucero and John Mellencamp, to mention but two.

“Olivia” shows a completely different side of the band. This track features stunning harmonies and an introspective lyrical composition. In particular, this song showcases the classic Americana style of the band. “Olivia” recalls country legends such as The Everly Brothers. Yet, Painted Canyon brings a more contemporary edge to this traditional songwriting style.

One of the most interesting songs from Painted Canyon is “Wanderlust”. The production aesthetic is balanced and crisp, allowing for the lead vocals to shine through in the mix. The guitar tones are smooth, adding to the diverse textures in the track.

“Lotta Living” is an energetic and uplifting song. Because of its dynamic and engaging composition, this would be perfect in a live performance. The lyrics in “Lotta Living” are sweet, poignant, and captivating. This is definitely one of the strongest tracks released by Painted Canyon.

The songs in this album are eclectic and diverse. This shows how versatile the musicians are and how beautifully they work together.
