SONG PICK: TEOA – Canyon
TEOA – The End Of America, a name inspired by a Jack Kerouac novel – is the East Coast trio of the seasoned musicians Brendon Thomas, James Downes and Trevor Leonard, who do beautiful melodic folk rock songs. Their latest offering “Canyon” eternalizes the memory of Amy Regan, a fellow musician and friend of Brendon, who passed away four years ago. Brendon recalls:
I penned “Canyon” as an invitation to her spirit, to be a part of my journey now, and to be a part of the music in some way. “If you’re here, sing now.” We both dreamed of playing Red Rocks. It always felt like Mecca for us, where you may one day be called up to present your song to the Great Spirit. If TEOA ever makes it to that stage, then I want her to be there to howl at the moon with us.
TEOA are planning to release a new single every month this year.
