Last modified: 23 Apr 2012
Modern rock group Canopy Red
will release their first full-length album 'Wake Up
' on 5th June 2012. The album was produced by Rusty Varenkamp (Michael W. Smith, Sanctus Real, Tenth Avenue North) after the Dove Award winning producer discovered them by chance online.
"It was totally a God thing with Rusty where he was surfing the internet, our name caught his eye, he started listening to our stuff and felt for some reason he could help us out,"
says frontman Forrest Krazit of their collaborator and newfound friend. "It started out as a trip to his studio to record and co-write a couple of songs, but it turned out God led us to work together on a full record. Rusty is a genius at coming up with melodies. We wound up co-writing ten songs with him- and he was very reassuring in not only the musical direction of our band, but our lifelong calling as well."
' is the follow-up to their 2009 self-titled EP. The band has already made a splash all across America thanks to constant touring, performing more than 120 concerts each year for the past 4 years, including dates on the increasingly popular Extreme Tour. This summer, the band will spend 8 weeks as the artist-in-residence for Centrifuge Camp in Panama City, Florida, followed by an appearance at Rock the Universe at Universal Studios in Orlando.
