As the frontman and a founding member of Taking Canyon, Jeremy seems to have found his niche. After years of bouncing around the Colorado hardcore, metal, and acoustic scenes, Jeremy decided to head in a different direction musically, and what he has found is something pleasingly different, something powerful. Confident and kind, and armed with the ability to hit a broad range of notes and melodic pitches, and formulate catchy vocal hooks, Jeremy has taken his musical vision and made it a reality with Taking Canyon. Very articulate, and a strong poetic composer, Jeremy writes songs that offer different takes on love and life, and he sings them with an honesty that allows the crowd a look into his heart, and can sometimes make it seem as if he is singing straight to theirs. Utilizing his different musical and intellectual influences, Taking Canyon has become a vehicle for Jeremy to blossom as a vocalist and a songwriter, both instrumentally and lyrically, and the two seem to be a match made in heaven.
Another of the founding members of the band, Joe has taken his musical experience to a higher level with Taking Canyon. After a solid experience in the Colorado acoustic scene, Joe teamed with Jeremy with a vision of creating a powerpop band that would combine all of their musical influences into something they could call their own. Joe loves music and it is apparent every time he picks up his guitar, whether at practice or at shows. Channeling his emotions through each chord he strikes or each unwavering note he plays, Joe brings a charisma and flavor to the band that helps ignite their music. Funny and kind, Joe acts as a glue to hold the band together, and is constantly looking for ways to improve both himself and the band as a whole, pushing the band to be better and maximize its sound.
A fixture in the band, Dan has been on board since it all began. With a myriad of different musical interests and influences, he has the ability to get a crowd in the palm of his hand with a catchy, poppy beat, and then suddenly stop them in their tracks with a powerful blast beat. Dan is the perfect complement to the melodically driven sound of Taking Canyon, and he gives each song its own taste with his ability to make creative beats and impose his will on the rhythm of each song. A calming influence within the band, Dan makes sure no one ever gets too high or too low, offering a degree of levity essential to propelling the band forward. He loves to have fun, and Taking Canyon has given him an avenue to express his musical interests to the best of his ability.
