About


Canvas Sounds is an Australian independent music label, management and production company now based in Manchester, UK. After years spent writing, performing and recording music with their own bands, brothers Adam and Nathan Lyons founded Canvas Sounds in reaction to their own less-than-groovy experiences with shoddy PR firms, shady promoters and lawfully binding, hard-to-get-out-of contracts. Their intention with this makeshift operation was to support new and emerging musicians by encouraging them not to make the same mistakes they did. Since 2013 Canvas Sounds has managed a small roster, promoting collaboration between its signed artists and keeping all PR, media, web design, mixing and production almost entirely within the family.

In 2015 Canvas Sounds and its artists relocated to Manchester for the sunshine. They are still, as far as they can tell, a not-for-profit organization.
