Spotlight Thursdays: The Inoculated Canaries

Spotlight Thursdays is back with a new band from the New York area! This band reached out to me through Twitter asking me for their honest review of a music video. Since I enjoyed it, I gave them the opportunity to be featured on the next Spotlight Thursdays! Let's welcome The Inoculated Canaries to this week's segment of Spotlight Thursdays!
Tell me a little about yourself. What is the name of your band and how would you describe the genre of music that you create?

The Inoculated Canaries: Our band is called The Inoculated Canaries! We sound like 1974 crashed right into 1994. We like to play loud rock and roll music with guitar solos, and just a little sprinkle of angst.

Where are you based out of?

TIC: We’re from New York Citymore specifically, Queens. 
Tell me about your latest album. What was the inspiration behind this album?

TIC: We’ve been putting out songs from our latest album as singles. I think one of my favorites is “The Lawyer’s Wife”. That song is about a woman with an alcoholic son and a deadbeat husband. It was based on a true story about someone very close to me. 

How has music played a role in your life?

TIC: We are very fortunate to be teachers at the School of Rock. I was a School of Rock student myself at one point, and it was really awesome to be surrounded by musicians from a young age. All of us take a lot of pride in sharing what we know with our students. 

What is your main driving force when making music?

TIC: For us, everything has to be real. We don't use drum machines, digital trickery, or any of that nonsense. We record all of our instruments live, and we don’t use backing tracks when we play shows. If you wanted to hear a recording, you wouldn’t have come to see a live band.
What else would you like to let the readers know?

Check us out on Spotify and give us a follow on Instagram (theinoculatedcanaries) and Twitter (@inoccanaries)!

The purpose of this segment is to give exposure to artists who are new or do not have that much of a social following. With the digital age of the internet and changing atmosphere of music, almost anyone can create and upload music on the internet. However, a lot of artists go unknown, even if they put out quality music content. If you like this type of content, please let me know and get in contact with me if you would like to be featured on this segment! Check out the previous Spotlight Thursdays post with Igneous!

Despite quarantine and lockdowns, she has been keeping busy by recording new music, as well as re-recording some of her older albums, due to some legal battles with her old record label. evermore marks her second album this year and her ninth studio album overall. The first track from the album is willow . The first thing I notice is that she continues to utilize that folk pop sound in her music, just like her previous album a few months back. It definitely is more upbeat and includes more ins
