The Canyon Rays are a California pop band hailing from Los Angeles. Fronted by lead singer, songwriter and producer, Luke Hamel, the five piece aim to combine the classic songwriting elements of the Beach Boys with the psychedelic underpinnings of shoegaze legends My Bloody Valentine, filtered through a modern indie pop sound. In 2013, The Canyon Rays released the holiday EP “Christmas in California." The San Francisco music blog, The Bay Bridged, debuted the EP, celebrating its “laid-back beach sounds with hooky pop motifs - a warming tribute to the holidays on both sides of California.” A song from the EP entitled, "Like a Sunburn," will be featured in an upcoming short film entitled, "Mandroid," directed by Victoria Rose and executive produced by James Franco. The Canyon Rays got their name from the quality of the sun in Los Angeles' legendary Laurel Canyon, where, in addition to Echo Park, Hamel wrote and recorded the band's forthcoming debut LP, "West Coast Babes." The album, set for release in summer 2014, is a love letter to the golden state along with the girls that make it the most heartbreaking place to live.
