Coastal Access, The Mighty Strange, Canto
The Wire Presents:
Canto is a family affair, a band consisting of three brothers all under the age of 20; Seamus Blackwell (Vocals, Guitar), Aidan Blackwell (Bass) and David Blackwell (Drums), who have a drive and talent that is beyond their years. The brothers, three of nine, come from a family that has always been heavily involved in music and were seemingly bred to play.
Their music is heavily influenced by the rock music of the 1960’s and 70’s, taking you back to the psyechedelic undertones one would find in Led Zepplin and The Who. Canto has exhibited refreshing originality in their writing, managing to combine their classic rock sound with the energy of a mature and operatic alt-rock sound that is something of a signature for them.
