Welcoming the newest member of the Native South Records family, Manchester, UK based rock outfit Dalmas. The band returns with their newest single ‘Is This Love’. The single will be released on September 17, 2021. After the release of their debut EP ‘Stay' in March supported by BBC 6 Music, George, Jacob and Augustus have teamed up with California based producer Jonathan Smith [a.k.a. TheRealJonSmith] to collaborate on their new single. Jonathan is the original drummer and a producer of the notable American rock band Luna Halo, formerly signed by Rick Rubin / Columbia Records.
Taking inspiration from the likes of Biffy Clyro and Nothing But Thieves, this is a new direction for the band with sounds influenced from 80’s pop classics infused with live rock elements the band is known for. The song tells the story of a new found relationship that has every potential of blossoming into something beautiful whilst looking at the excitement that the future holds. When speaking about the track, drummer and singer George said “after the year everyone has had we want this track to make people feel good about life, lyrically it is completely different for us. We want people to feel joyous after listening to this track.”
The band recorded completely remotely in Manchester (UK) in George’s student house giving the band a chance to go back to basics and connect with each other after the struggles of the pandemic lockdowns. After George met Los Angeles based producer Jonathan Smith [a.k.a. TheRealJonSmith] on a trip to California in 2019, the band have wanted to collaborate with Jonathan ever since. This felt like the perfect song to start with. Working over FaceTime was a really unique and new way for the band and Jonathan to produce this track. However, pushing to always do something new, Dalmas and Native South Records hope to continue releasing music into the future.
Chris Canyon is a Southern California based singer / songwriter. Growing up in the high desert of Hesperia, CA, he began writing songs as a way to express the experiences and emotions he encountered in his life. Chris developed a hard earned “DIY” work ethic that has no doubt helped him achieve admirable independent success. He has already gotten his songs played on terrestrial radio such as 95.1 KLOS, opened for Jacob Bryant, and competed on both The Voice and American’s Got Talent. Having several successes so early on in his career, Chris would say he’s both inspired and encouraged to pursue his songwriting and artist career full-time and full-tilt.
Blending his multi-genre musical tastes, that’s a little bit rock and a little bit country, Chris' songs have evolved into what some have described as a unique “California Country” sound. His music comes from a truly experiential and humble point of view, and represents his deep love of lyric and music.
Recently signed to Native South Records, Chris is set to release his debut single “Forget Me” [featuring guest vocals by multi-million Spotify streaming artist and friend, Christie Huff.]
Welcome to the Native South Records family Chris!
