Canary Burton is known as a “wash-ashore” Cape Codder (Massachusetts living in a house on a hill in the trees by the marsh). She is surrounded by the rolling dunes, forest and wetlands visited by thousands every year.
Canary studied music at the University of Idaho at Moscow in the 1970’s forming several bands in both the rock and jazz genres. After moving to Washington DC to listen to the musicians in the jazz scene, she moved to the Cape finding peace and a supportive environment for concentrated composing.
Her work progressed through jazz, pop and sound art into classical music based on these roots. Canary’s influences are Jennifer Higdon, Kitty Brazelton and Arvo Part; Thelonius Monk and Meridith Monk; Barbara Borden, Rick Sowash, Chopin and Erik Satie to name a few.
Canary’s single above is a composition called ‘Turkey Too MIX’. This song showcases her skills as a composer perfectly, along with Jon Jarvis on the piano, enjoy!
