March the Fourth Be With You!

Thank you to everyone who has visited Given To Sound, especially if you have done so in the last few hours because you have helped set the highest reader / visitor numbers since 2007. The previous best figure has been more than doubled  tripled as of end of day , making 4th March 2011 a kick-ass day and me one very happy person.

There’s new stuff up I’m incredibly proud of but most of the attention is because of the Christian Kane stuff so HUGE thanks to Kaniacs (and I’ve seen the stats to prove it).

I’ve sat and written words that get nowhere, it’s only right to point out when some words get everywhere. It’s a pleasure to write about Chris and I know there will be more to say, somewhere down the road.

In the meantime, there’s more music to hear and more words to write. Working hard on new articles that are going to be here very soon.

Christian Kane’s House Rules, No Doubt

The wait was nearly over; “I can do it, I can do it, I can actually ring up the radio station and request a song off it!”

That was the message emailed to me by an aquaintence in December. Christian Kane’s major label debut (second first album, if you like) had release dates and it was all official. There was  a very big feeling of “At last” in the air.

At last, the album everyone’s wanted has arrived.

At last, when you type in Christian Kane’s name in Amazon there’s an album alongside the television stuff (and not Live Fast Die Never – Angel Soundtrack)

AT LAST wider circles of people will be able to hear what Kaniacs have been saying for years. It’s not important when you walked into the house; it’s that you found your way there.

“Do We Get The Thumbs Up?”

Christian Kane – Part Two

Live in London  is an acoustic set performed by Christian and Steve; it’s more intimate acoustically but does not lack any of the energy of the full band recordings. The Live In London is a closer representation of the UK gigs this month. Perhaps listen to this set if you are at all daunted by the country music tag, because this will give you a chance to hear the music and the lyrics in a rawer setting without the other guys. In this collection and on the night in Liverpool you can really hear Steve and Christian play off each other in the songs as well as between them. Their chemistry shines through and they set the songs off well.

They’re KANE, They Saw They Will Conquer

“Do we get the thumbs up?” –  Christian Kane Part One

Kane are a band started by Christian Kane and Steve Carlson. Buffyverse fans are no stranger to Christian, if they have heard LA Song on the Angel soundtrack. However, as Christian himself was quick to point out to me, “I didn’t write that song, David Greenwalt wrote that song…”   Continue reading
