“Scarlet Canary isn’t your ordinary little bird…” – Metal Recon
“Maddox and the crew wear their hearts on their sleeve, leaving their songs dripping with emotion.” –Colorado Music Buzz
With their most recent release of their album ‘Arise’ the band has been doing just that, rising through the ranks of the regional music scene. Early tours in the Midwest with Stitched Up Heart and City of the Weak generated the momentum that sparked a number of US Headlining tours going as far west as California and as far east Pennsylvania. 2016’s Tour Schedule consisted of 92 shows across 21 states, 46 cities, 47,906 Miles and 65 days’ worth of drive time. This tour history has earned the band performances with Skillet, Saliva, Gemini Syndrome, Lita Ford, and many more.
The band’s talent and work ethic over the last two years on the road has earned sponsorships from Westone in Ear Systems and Spector Bass. Always on time for load in and ready to throw down the band is fronted by the powerful vocals of Hannah Maddox which takes female fronted rock right up to the edge of metal. Deep driving toms and down-tuned guitars with riffs inspired by pop punk and metal core back Hannah’s hard rock driven vocals where it is not uncommon for her to scream at a climatic bridge.
“Arise” was produced by Martin Schroeder of No Heart Studios and had a peak chart position in the top 50 on Radio Contraband’s ‘Under the Radar’ charts in 2016. You can hear Scarlet Canary’s music played on FM Stations from Idaho to Wisconsin. Scarlet Canary’s music can also be found on Pandora, Spotify, Apple Music, and all other major online retailers.
“The band members in Scarlet Canary strive to put every ounce of passion and energy they can muster into the group’s live performances.” –Sioux City Journal

JOURNEY is one of the most popular American rock bands of all time, creating some of the best-known songs in modern music, with iconic hits such as “Faithfully,” “Any Way You Want It,” “Wheel In The Sky,” “Separate Ways,” “Only the Young,” “”Open Arms,” “Lovin, Touchin’, Squeezin’,” “Who’s Crying Now,” and the seminal “Don’t Stop Believin’,” which is the top-selling digital catalog track in history. Since its formation in 1973 in San Francisco, Journey has sold more than 80 million albums worldwide, earning 19 Top 40 singles and 25 gold, platinum and multi-platinum albums, and has headlined multiple sold-out stadium tours. The Greatest Hits album is certified 15 times-Platinum, bringing Journey into the elite club of Diamond-certified award holders. Journey received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, was inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame, and is the subject of the award-winning documentary, ‘Don’t Stop Believin’: Everyman’s Journey.’ The band recently received a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nomination.
Neal Schon (founding member and lead guitarist), Ross Valory (original member and bassist), and longtime members Jonathan Cain (keyboardist) and Arnel Pineda (lead singer), welcomed virtuoso drummer Steve Smith back into Journey for their “San Francisco Fest 2016” tour, marking the first time he performed with the band since 1998. Schon’s musical career began at the age of 15, when he debuted with Santana as a guitar prodigy on the No. 1 album, Santana III. Valory has been a grounding force in Journey since the band’s formation (other than a brief hiatus in the late 80’s and early 90’s) and Cain was brought on board in 1980, rounding out the songwriting genius behind the defining album, Escape. Since Arnel Pineda joined Journey as its new lead singer in 2007, the band has released two albums and embarked on seven major tours, performing on four continents for more than five million fans, which earned the group Billboard’s prestigious “Legend of Live Award.” Check Journeymusic.com for more information.
