The Canarys are a power duo dedicated to playing gritty handmade rock and roll for the 21st century.
Alexander Hollins, on guitar and vocals, pairs thoughtful lyrics with heavy emotional guitars. Marco Saah plays huge driving and grooving drums inspired by hip-hop, R&B, and jazz. The combined sound feels fierce and energetic, while also being melodic and in-the-pocket.
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.
