Lying somewhere between Hard Rock and Gothic Metal, the CLOCKTOWER exhibits guitar player and vocal siren, Kerry Cannan to complete the elaborate, yet soul barring sound of post grunge era hard rock. CLOCKTOWER features crunchy distortion and brooding textures, married to the attack of metal drums, shredding guitar solos, and the sweep of grandeur with symphonic strings. Drawing influences from groups such as Evanescence, Within Temptation, Nightwish, Seether, Linkin Park, Delain, Avenged Sevenfold, and Lacuna Coil, the American group CLOCKTOWER will command your attention the moment they hit the stage.
“We are definitely a Rock band but tend to add a dark gothic twist and some very aggressive drum beats” ~ Kerry Cannan ~
This original music promises a better tomorrow through your darkest of days, and does it with attitude. These are the songs you crave after the dark times settle in.
A female-fronted American rock band originally founded in Rochester, NY in 2011 by Kerry Cannan (vocals/guitar), and James Adams (guitar). These two musicians spent years playing in various cover bands together until 2009 when they joined with drummer Mike Adams (Arkhem), bass player Shawn Irwin (Mad Funk) and back up vocalist, Margit Brazda-Poirier to form the band simply titled, Kerry Cannan. The group recorded an all original, mixed-genre full-length studio album entitled “I Want You” which released in December 2009. Following this, the band changed some members and moved toward a heavier genre adding more aggressive guitars and heavy metal drum sounds. The group released a single entitled “Questions for St Peter” in June of 2011 under their new identity, The Clocktower. In June of 2011, the group made yet another change and added their newest member, metal drummer Travis Stowe, (Down Driven). Confident with their current sound and line up, Clocktower is currently working on their new sound, new songs, and new recordings.
