Lost Canyons

Lost Canyons started as a couple of friends, Mitch and Kennan, while attending Montana State University. Kennan and Mitch met while on a retreat during their respective freshman and sophomore years. Through the years of college houses and gaining life experience Lost Canyons puts out a dynamic and guitar heavy sound. Big Sky Bonus Tracks says Lost Canyons "conjures visions of sunshine and hot summer vibes with music that is complimented suspiciously well with a crisp beverage."

Hailing from Bozeman Montana, nestled in the mountains, Lost Canyons pulls inspiration from the vast landscapes and dramatic rivers. Combining aspects of Folk, Rock, funk, and bluegrass Lost Canyons brings a sound that is uncommon the the wild west of Montana.

Recently named Bozeman's best local rock band and awarded the honor of best new local album by Bozeman Magazine, Lost Canyons is here to rock the rafters and have a damn good time doing it.
