Lance Canales and the Flood
“Lance Canales and The Flood”, features a new sound that was born out of a bluesy, rootsy, folk rock with a Native Americana twist. With the Earth shacking bottom end of the Upright bass and the natural rhythm of the Cajon (Box Drum) add an acoustic guitar and a Native American Flute and you have LC & The Flood. “Lance Canales and the Flood” are currently working on new music for there album "RootStomp".
