It’s been a while, but we have been busy indeed! Malta takes London was another great night and we’re stoked that we got to collaborate with many other great Maltese artists again. There is now an official page for Malta takes London, so head here and hit ‘like’ if you want to stay updated with the next event! We’ve also been quite involved with Westfield recently. We took part in Westfield Presents, performing a series of acoustic shows across both centres, leading up to the MUSIC CUBE competition. The MUSIC CUBE is a new concept incorporating some of the latest in sound technology and a sound proof cube! We won the judge’s choice and were invited to perform inside the cube on press night, opening up for Professor Green. Check out the highlights video from the night here. We are performing in the MUSIC CUBE again tomorrow, Sunday the 26th at Westfield London (Shep Bush) and you can get free tickets by clicking here. Don’t miss it! It’s a wicked concept and a really fun experience! Look forward to seeing you there.

Canvas Wall are a fresh take on a blend of genres, from blistering stadium rock to head bopping indie pop they manage to create a colourful interweaving and textured sound, layering spine tingling melodies over a banging vacuum packed rhythm section. Their songs sing of soul searching visions fuelled by a passion for life. Never before has there been a need for such a musical tapestry until Canvas Wall stepped forward and created one.
The band formed in 2008 by four like-minded musicians (Simon Dounis, Craig Rogerson, Nathan Bryans, Alvin Ho) who felt the need to create music that was different. They spent the next two years writing, rehearsing, touring and building a following and a name in Londonâ€™s buzzing music scene. In 2010 they released their first single, â€˜Sooner or Laterâ€™, followed by â€˜Close to the Edgeâ€™ which gained national and international Radio play in the UK (BBC introducing on 3 counties radio, ONFM, Amazing FM, Total Rock Radio, Recharged Radio, Brooklands Radio, Caroline Radio, Krystal Radio) Malta (XFM, Bay Radio) and Finland (Radio Nova) which was followed by a sponsored mini-tour.
In 2011 Canvas Wall also released their first music video for â€˜Close to the Edgeâ€™ under the creative wings of the world famous visual effects company, The Mill (Gladiator the movie, Florence And The Machineâ€™s- No Light No Light) which saw 11,000 hits in 8 months and are now making plans for their next video and single release, â€˜The Road to Blissâ€™, from their Debut album titled â€˜Thinking Out Loudâ€™. After debuting the album to thousands in Malta at the Great Beer Festival, they returned to the UK to launch the album in London in August. With the momentum gained from the single releases, Canvas Wall has ensured that this album will not go unnoticed with radio guest appearances lined up, gigs booked around the UK along with press, album reviews and appearances on video blogs a plenty!
With Energy by the truckload and an unquenchable appetite for making music and playing live, Canvas Wall will keep doing what they do best. The guys are extremely hard working, and focused on a future that is looking bright, with determination and a passion for what they do.
