Aside from God, our family and friends, we love music of all kinds. Here is a short bio written by one of our beloved fans. Kanybl Kaow is an all-girl band from Montague,CA. Snow, Silvermoon, Rain and Whitefeather are sisters, and yes, those are their real names. This band is a true phenomenon of self-taught musicians whose style is refreshingly original, innovative and lyrically thought provoking. Theirs is the kind of music for people who are tired of the same old thing and are ready for something different.
The girls had always wanted to be in a band, so one day in April of 2004 after having been picked on by a particular boy at school, they came home and decided to write a song about their experience. They borrowed their dad's band equipment and wrote Darkside. They then performed the song in their garage and drew a fairly large crowd of neighbors including the local police who politely asked them to tone down the volume. Thusly, Kanybl Kaow was born.
Kanybl Kaow's major influence is primarily their profound love of music of all genres. They get their inspiration from the desire and ability to play good music that people enjoy. They like to make their fans feel like part of the band, and often invite members of the audience to come up on stage with them. Their music could be described as electric dynamite tempered by the voices of angels.
The band has put on several concerts a year as benefits for The National Breast Cancer Foundation and the local volunteer fire departments in their area.
Musician Spotlight: Bully Inspires Sisters to Launch Popular Band Kanybl Kaow by Adam Mankoski March 4, 2010 Montague-based band Kanybl Kaow was born in April 2004 when sisters Snow, Silvermoon, Rain and Whitefeather came home, freshly picked on by a boy at school, borrowed their dad’s band equipment and wrote the song “Darkside” about the experience. The first performance of “Darkside” in their garage drew a fairly large crowd of neighbors plus police, who politely asked them to turn down the volume.
What can audiences expect from a Kanybl Kaow performance?
Our major influence is primarily our profound love of music of all genres. We get our inspiration from the desire and ability to play good music that people enjoy. We like to make our fans feel like part of the band, and often invite members of the audience to come up on stage with us. Our music could be described as electric dynamite tempered by the voices of angels.
You girls are artistic and philanthropic. How did you get started doing benefit shows for the National Breast Cancer Foundation?
A few years ago, Snow noticed a lump on one of her breasts. She was too old to be on her parents’ health insurance, too young to obtain Medi-Cal and didn't have a job that provided health insurance. The National Breast Cancer Foundation paid for her ultrasound. Her lump turned out to be benign, but the Foundation helped us have some peace of mind. We also donate to the local volunteer fire departments. Besides donating to these organizations, we have given away several guitars, gift certificates and many other items at our concerts.
I’m glad you’re coming to stir up Redding. How are the girls feeling about the show?
We are very excited to be doing our first show of the season and tour in Redding. We have heard good things about Redding and are proud to be a part of the Second Saturday ArtHop. We have been practicing like crazy and hope to bring some musical enjoyment and put smiles on many faces.
