about

Canyon Kids began as a recording project between songwriters Bo Elledge and Dusty Nichols. The two collaborators put together what they called a "Double EP," in which each songwriter contributed four songs of their own. The result: a harmony centric style, rooted in folk, and blended with other genres like rock, electronica, soul, and psychedelia. Their home is Jackson Hole Wyoming, where the surrounding mountainous landscape is a constant source of inspiration. Whether playing as an acoustic duo, or backed by their trusty rhythm section (John Wayne Harris Jr on drums and Adam Woolley on bass) these Canyon Kids aim to please with lush vocal harmony, big guitar sounds, mellow acoustic strums, and thoughtful arranging.

Track Name: Supermoon
why do you stare at the moon
why are you always on the move
pretend pretend pretend
the good things they won't ever come to an end
whats the next place your gonna run and hide
when will you ever be satisfied
roller coaster roller coaster ride
whats round the bend
surprise surprise
where you been where'd you end up
confused out in the cold kickin a cup
too cautious to commit to anything
too careless with that heart you been carrying
whats the next place your gonna run and hide
when will you ever be satisfied
roller coaster roller coaster ride
whats round the bend
surprise surprise
Track Name: Low End
"low end"

i like the peace, life in the valley
i like the quiet, colorless country
oh so frozen, when the winter wind blows in
your blood flows slow then
you reach the low end
on this negative twenty two degree
winters eve in wyoming
what are you afraid of
what are you made of
son you better shape up
change your fate up
i like the peace, life in the valley
i like the quiet colorless country
life in the city is way too busy
i move slow like the snow
on this negative twenty two degree
winters eve in wyoming
what are you afraid of
what are you made of
son you better shape up
change your fate up

Track Name: Golden Eagle
"golden eagle"

riding high through the park
then the blue sky sky turned dark
came the icy pain with the wind
all alone i found a friend

waiting in the woods
frightened where we stood
cloud capped mountains
clappin' thunder fountains
lets go and get the hell out of here
flee outrun the bad with me

~Bo Elledge
Track Name: Big Silly Grin
“big silly grin”

there is a tiny town way up in the clouds
from way up there you can’t see no ground
the fun’s always present, so are all your friends
you can unwrap everyday with a big silly grin
the cloud mountain ranges no beginning or end
you can hike to the top to watch birds fly
higher and higher the highest of high
when the town falls we’ll all go for a swim
the atlantic, pacific, or mediterranean
we can unwrap everyday with a big silly grin

~bo elledge
Track Name: Adam
one born weak one strong
one left to tend and one abroad
fights but meek he tries
to be something great in his father's eyes
is this a soldier
how the fear does burn
in his chest like fire
for the the funeral pyre
home he returns a wanderer
brothers once estranged they grow fonder
love, only lasts so long
trapped once again adam must move on
is this a sojourn
how the heart does yearn
to be free to roam
yet he's drawn back home
them
marched in file
heaped in piles
for the fire
what did they do
enough to make a man sick
him
looking on
knowing there's
something wrong
what did I do
how do they deserve all this
Track Name: Catherine
"catherine"

crawling up the porch steps
bloodied battered and bruised
he fell for her right then
this beauty who'd shown up abused
the brother knew better
he's a man who's cut from stone
he saw through her loveliness
right into the monster's soul
such a broken bird
hardly said a word
and he was helplessly hers
which made it so much worse
when that gun went off
cathy and the black curse
she'll come peeking through your closets
find those skeletons in the dark
she'll make you love her so madly
she'll make you want her so badly
i'm just trying to tell you brother
such a broken bird
hardly said a word
and he was helplessly hers
which made it so much worse
when that gun went off
cathy and the black curse
probe the black
pool of water
catherine
probe the black
pool of water

Track Name: Sam
“sam”

whiskey on his breath
twinkle in his eye
sam thinks this dustbowl heap
is as good as mamma’s pie
and she’s working dough with the roller
making it jump and coil
sams on the road to eden, to richer soil
his dreams are oh so tall
but the money all falls short
he’ll find you all the water
when his own place ain’t got a quart
and he'll rock that new born babe
in those gentle callused hands
and he always speaks the truth because he's sam
