You can go ahead and just dance to the music of George Canyon, if that’s what you want. He’s a country neo-traditionalist par excellence, producing music situated somewhere between the bright and studio-tooled Nashville ideal and something a little older, with a voice that can soar with emotion or linger in a heavy bottom-end that feels like a kick in the chest from a faith healer. It’s instant.
When you see the man, with piercing eyes that hang above his square jaw, the star appeal becomes even more obvious, and you remember all those achievements – the string of hits, a shelf-full of Junos and Canadian Country Music Awards, not to mention his rocket-ride to American fame on Nashville Star 2 in 2004, and the subsequent blockbuster albums One Good Friend, Somebody Wrote Love and What I Do.
Now, his brand new album, Better Be Home Soon, is set to hit stores and on line March 22nd 2011 and the new release has Canyon co-producing with pop king Richard Marx. His current single and title track of the upcoming album, “Better Be Home Soon” is currently in the top ten of the country radio charts.
