Paul Daniels - singer/songwriter/ guitar
A diverse taste in music from all genres gives the spark to writing for Canis. It goes way back to coming home with a copy of the Sgt. Peppers album at 7 years old and playing it over and over again, much to my parents surprise.
After many years in and out of bands, session work and writing projects shelved, a conscious decision was made which was basically 'its now or never': so the nucleus of the working band from many years ago started to piece together this catalogue of music.
So we begin .... again.
Pete Harriman - bass/backing vocals
Pete first met Paul when they were about 13. They spent their time together discussing their respective favourite bands (Paul could never quite match Petes superior musical taste!), and trying to outdo each other with ever more obscure album titles during interminable games of Hangman at the back of the classroom.
Pete has spent 25 years gigging with well respected cover bands but was always waiting in the wings for the call to get back to playing the original songs of Canis.
Zeus hails from the northwest and has played drums from the age of 6. At 10 yrs old he played the Parr Hall in Warrington to around 2000 people and continued in that vein for many years. Zeus was in various bands culminating Sex Radio, touring with 100 Reasons and had promises of label support; Sony primarily and tours of the USA ended in disbanding through pursuing different interests. He moved to Bristol and played in successful bands like The Smokes, then ended up in Australia for 2 years; then finally came back home. Zeus moved to Doncaster to join Canis in November 2018 and the story begins here.
