About

Kanan, Kyle & Kory Cox formed Kanan Road over 15 years ago as teenagers in  Palmdale, California.  They named the band after the road their father used to take to the beach in Malibu, CA.  Dad was an avid surfer and music lover too.  Digging through their dad’s music collection (all vinyl of course), they became influenced by greats like The Allman Brothers, Skynyrd, Marshall Tucker, The Outlaws, Henry Paul, and Charlie Daniels, but also others like Bad Company, Jackson Browne & The Eagles to name but a few.  Today’s influences would become Blackberry Smoke, Whiskey Meyers, David Nail, amongst many others.

With members Drew Howard on Bass and Josh Frontiero on Drums, Kanan Road consistently delivers unforgettable, contagious high-energy, in-your-face live performances that are filled with heartfelt precision.  Kanan Road has shared the stage with Trace Adkins, Lonestar, The Marshall Tucker Band, The Dan Band, Love & Theft, Chase Bryant, Gloriana, The Band Perry, Scotty McCreery, Joe Nichols, Easton Corbin, Josh Gracin, Blue Oyster Cult, Molly Hatchet among others at venues from The House of Blues to The Temecula Balloon & Wine Festival, to the The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville to the Canyon Club in Agoura, wineries, fairs and private events.   The band released their newest Rock album “Feed My Fire” in 2017, which is now available on cd or digital download on iTunes, CDBaby, and at all Kanan Road shows.  Kanan Road is the real deal.  Real songs, real instruments, real players, real music!  An all-around fun bunch to be around!!

 

* Producer’s Note: Craig Randall – Producer on ” Back on Track”:  “What struck me when I first heard the band’s music was the fact that I thought I’d already heard these songs, some type of familiarity; to add to that – by the time the second chorus rolled around I could already sing along with whatever song we were considering recording for the new album.  Talk about catchy tunes! We all argued about what songs were best to put on the album, so believe me when I say that there is much more to come. One of the accomplishments I’m most proud of with the new album was succeeding with our mutual goal of having the recordings sound like the band-meaning: you see the band live and then you go buy the tunes, and refreshingly, they sound pretty DAMN similar.  Even better, you hear the recorded tunes first and then go see the band live, and nothing is missing.  Let me tell you something else, when you see these guys on their first awards show, AND YOU WILL, probably sooner rather than later, you won’t see some glitzy crap band or singer performing along to prerecorded tracks.  With the amount of live concert experience these guys have, It will no doubt be all Live, Large and Lovely!”
