About

Formed by brothers Kanan Cox, Kyle Cox & Kory Cox, this southern tinged rock band Kanan Road has enjoyed over 20 years of success playing stages all over the U.S.  The brothers formed the band as teenagers living in Southern California, first emulating their biggest influences, which consist of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bad Company, Marshall Tucker Band, The Allman Brothers, Jackson Browne, The Eagles, Tom Petty, Stevie Ray Vaughn and many others.  The band name Kanan Road, which is an actual road in Malibu, California, was chosen as an ode to their father & mentor, Kevin Cox, who used to take the winding Kanan Rd. to get down to the Malibu coast to surf every day as a teen.  With heavy influence from their dad, the brothers began writing and recording their own songs in the early 2000’s and have been performing at least 100 shows per year for the last decade.

Together with fellow members Bruce James on Bass and Jake Herzberg on Drums, Kanan Road delivers high-octane, in-your-face live performances filled with stellar 3-part vocal harmonies, kickass guitar riffs, combined with their 70’s classic rock flavored original songs that sound refreshingly nostalgic, real & raw.

Kanan Road has shared stages with hit rockers like Blue Oyster Cult, The Marshall Tucker Band, and Molly Hatchet, along with many country music stars like Trace Adkins, Lonestar, Love & Theft, Chase Bryant, Gloriana, The Band Perry, Scotty McCreery, Joe Nichols, Easton Corbin, and Josh Gracin at venues that have ranged from The House of Blues to the world famous Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, TN.   The band released their newest album “Feed My Fire” in 2017, which is available on cd or digital download on iTunes & CDBaby.  Kanan Road is the real deal.  Real songs, real instruments, real players, real music!  Stay tuned for new music soon, as the band will be heading back into the studio to record their newest release sometime in 2021.

 

* Producer’s Note: Craig Randall – Producer on Kanan Road album ” 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!”
