CANARY IN A COAL MINE

This EP takes Hip-Hop and combines it with a heavy pop and rock influence creating a unique sound and style all on its own. Each song promises a story for the listener to follow delivered alongside clever wordplay and a sense of humour. All songs are upbeat with the exception of “GetAway” a slower tune with a deep thought-provoking story. With concepts everyone can relate to, songs like “Weirdos Win” and “Higher” teach self-confidence while “Buried Alive” deals with matters of the heart. The name “Canary In A Coal Mine” is an old saying which today translates to “warning.”

By naming the EP “Canary In A Coal Mine” I am sending out a warning to Hip-Hop that I have come to change the way rap music is written, recorded, and heard!” – Goliath PAW
