Kurtis Kanttila

Good day it's Kurtis Kanttila, 26 year old One Man Band from Northern Ontario. I had to make a new account since I couldn't get into @kanttila (moral of the story be careful where you use temp emails).

I make Rock 'n Roll music with the mindset of prolific over perfect. Recently I upgraded to XLR mics and I've been focusing on my drums more. I dream of making nice melodic Pop music but the caveman inside of me needs to smash things.

This 50/90 has been sparse for me, I will likely not be uploading any more songs unless something magical happens and I get sudden inspiration.

My musical journey began when I was 13 and I put on KISS' Psycho Circus album. I became obsessed and soon began playing bass, guitar and drums. KISS & AC/DC have always been my two favorite bands and guiding lights in music. They are in everything I make.

I never thought I could make my own music until I listened to Sonic Youth's Daydream Nation and Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited. I began recording songs in Summer 2016 and now with 22 albums and 300+ tunes I discovered my way of expressing my personality, mundane fascinations and inner energy with music.

The key artists in my life and influences on my music are (in chronological order) KISS, AC/DC, Van Halen, W.A.S.P., Michael Jackson, Metallica, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Katy Perry, Bruce Springsteen, The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Utada Hikaru, Yui, Bob Dylan, Carly Rae Jepsen, The Byrds, Sonic Youth, The Smiths, The Clash, Misfits, Ramones, Seiko Oomori, BiSH, BAND-MAID, Haru Nemuri, The Who, Thin Lizzy, Janet Jackson and The Isley Brothers.

@nadine

I meant the lyrics. Well maybe just send me an mp3 and I try to do something. Maybe it works!

@nadine

Thanks! Yeah, I get your trouble. Parts of the song need a hard rock / blues phrasing that is tight to your guitar riff and rests. Which part should be the chorus?

@candle

Thanks for your lovely comments on my songs thusfar. You might enjoy my Agent Provocateur (a rockier number). It was inspired by a slice-of-life anime series I recently watched called Horimiya. A very cool series about high school love & pecking orders.

Hey Kurtis! Good to see you. I'm having login issues with the new site (ones I hope to have resolved shortly). Created this "dummy" account just to try to get some troubleshooting done.

Looking forward to hearing what you have in store for us this summer!
