Bio

"I'd rather die than see you bleed" - (Let Me) Shine Your Shoes

The Canarys are a power duo dedicated to playing gritty handmade rock and roll for the 21st century. The band members are Alexander Hollins on guitar and vocals, and Marco Saah on the drums. Alexander tells stories that move you on the inside, while Marco lays down beats that move you on the outside.

Right now, The Canarys are working on playing live. They believe that music is at its most powerful when it's performed for an audience, and they want to bring that power to everyone they can. Their first studio single, (Let Me) Shine Your Shoes, is here. Good Enough is next.

The music grew from the practice rooms of Loyola University New Orleans. Alexander and Marco were both freshman Popular and Commercial Music students, learning from the sounds of the most musical city in the world. They originally wanted to be more than just a two-piece, but they clicked so well, and the songs sounded so good; they realized that the music was at its best when it was being played by just the two of them.
