Radio One 91FM presents: Sky Canvas - Live at U-Bar

To celebrate the release of their new single Fossil, Wellington 5-piece Sky Canvas are taking their radiant and hard-grooving brand of alternative soul out on tour this Spring!

Sky Canvas bring a dynamic blend of stirring vocals with colourful synth/guitar textures and fiery, dancing rhythms that you'll find yourself moving to - with a sound that has elements of off-centre soul and hip-hop with undercurrents of electronic, funky rock and eastern-tinged jazz.

Having formed at the NZ School of Music in 2016, they have since played many memorable shows and supported some fantastic touring acts - developing on the way a tight live set, a strong Wellington fan base, and a drive to continue to make compelling and fun music.

Katelin Little’s vocals are soulfully charged; her lyrics, delivery, and presence on stage are sincere and absorbing. Fraser Walker (keys/synth) and Sam Nakamura (guitar) create a bright backdrop of texture and harmony. Luther Hunt (Drums) and Tyaan Singh (Bass) hold down the grooves; Tyaan also switches between instruments and brings the magic on his saxophone - which really gets the crowd bouncing in a big way.

Their self-titled debut EP, recorded in Wellington's Surgery Studios in 2017 with Lee Prebble and mastered by Mike Gibson of Munki Studios, reached #13 on the NZ Albums chart, and #8 on the Heatseekers chart.

"If you’re into grooves, jazzy guitar, spacey keys, powerful female vocals, and a couple more grooves, look no further than Sky Canvas.. last year’s EP was an absolute belter of a debut by a group of Kiwis with musical talent to burn" - Tearaway

"Immediately reminiscent of Hiatus Kaiyote, Emily King and Robert Glasper" - NZ Musician
