We’re fans too, and one of the privileges of running this blog is that we get to share our personal enthusiasms. Here’s my latest, The Canyons. They are a Los Angeles-based band comprised of singer-songwriters Alisan Porter, Ilsey Juber and Jordan Lawhead. They have a folk-rock vibe with their acoustic instrumentation and sweetly blending vocal harmonies, yet there’s something current, urgent and insistent about their sound. I can see it will easily grow on me. Eleven tracks are available on their website. I’m particulalry taken with this one, “The Great Escape.” Take a listen and let us know what you think. – J.K.
