Album Notes
In the winter of 2003, childhood friends Nathan Medina and Grant Shirley began writing songs and would later join up with local drummer Ben Horne in hopes of creating music that would touch and inspire others. After a couple months of practice and with only a hand full of songs, The Canvas Waiting would showcase their talent for the first time at a local battle of the bands and to their surprise win. Soon the three realized that the chemistry and connection that they shared was not coincidental and that this band was unlike any other musical project they had been in. With the addition of friend and musician Chris Applegate on the bass, the band was finally ready to take off. Driven by an undeniable passion for music and their faith in God, The Canvas Waiting began to pour their hearts into every song, creating what would be the In Search of Beginnings E.P. This E.P is a testament to the challenges and transformations that the band underwent over the course of writing this record and how they found hope through their faith, their families and each other. Entering the studio with acclaimed Houston producer MD Thompson of Ivory-Tower-Realizations, the band came out with a record that they were not only proud of but knew would captivate the listener. Track after track of this seven song E.P is filled with melodic rock and pop sensibility without ever compromising intelligent songwriting. Vocalist and song writer Nathan Medina states, I would like to think that our music contains a certain depth but at the same time is something that you will want to sing along to, both of which are becoming more rare in music today. With the release of their E.P in 2005, the band has attracted a large and loyal following. As they play more shows and continue selling records, The Canvas Waiting hopes to take what they have started in Texas and share it with the world.

Awesome CD! I love It
I listen to everything from the heaviest of metal and hardcore, to punk, to worship music. I LOVE THESE GUYS. Beautiful clean vocals, great and inspiring lyrics. Well mixed cd as far as EQ and levels go, everything is clear, and there is a good diveristy of style of songs within the genre on this cd. I could throw most of my music away (i have a lot) and just listen to these guys. Best band in their genre I have heard!! BUY IT!!
