There is a saying that too many cooks spoil the broth, but that is certainly not the case with Melbourne's folk troupe Canos. With eight different musicians adding their own creativity to the mix, the end result is a gorgeous combination of traditional folk instruments with dreamy vocals, layered harmony's and pop sensibility's instruments
The band was originally formed by frontman Cam Lee in early 2008
to add group dynamic to his solo musical efforts. Since then, Canos has evolved into a fully fledged musical act in it's own right, leading the Melbourne nu-folk revolution. Influenced by musical geniuses like Neil Finn, Elvis Costello, Paul Kelly, Counting Crows and Nina Simone, Canos' mellow sound, meaningful lyrics will leave you dreaming of green hills and summertime.
"I have always enjoyed stories in songs and always set out to tell a story" main songwriter Cam reveals "But as I progress though the songwriting, it always ends up turning into a personal reflection on the story and can become a little ambiguous. I like that about our songs"
The octet released their charming self-titled EP in 2010. The band were then lucky to work with critically acclaimed Australian producer Steven Schram (Little Birdy, Cat Empire) on the single, The Fear of Missing Out
