Canary Mine


[From Facebook] In April 2012 Canary Mine released their new full-length and seventh independent album called “Between a Rock and a Heartbreak”.

Self-described as folk-hop, Canary Mine is a humourous combination of folk, rock, country and hip-hop. Since forming in 2003, their music has been aired on CBC national radio and charted on college stations across Canada. They performed on Toronto’s Breakfast Television in 2008, and two of their songs, “Rock Song” and “Cool Breeze”, were featured in the 2007 Allan Moyle directed film ’Weirdsville’. The name ’Canary Mine’ is an ode to Canadian mining communities such as Cape Breton and Sudbury.

Canary Mine is an eclectic gathering of creative performers and each member draws from their own creative background, mixing genres and styles to create new sounds as a vehicle for their original songwriting. Carl Welch on drums played with numerous heavy metal bands. Mim Adams on keys was a darling of musical theatre. Joe Arnup on bass was a jungle DJ. James Lanbro on guitar was a hip-hop MC.
