Focus Your Audio is one of Vancouver's best kept secrets, however it won't be long for the world to realize just how thoughtful & beautiful their songs are. Well done!!” - Legendary Canadian Producer, Adam Hurstfield

About

Focus Your Audio

Vancouver-based duo Focus Your Audio's single, "On Your Own" comes as a follow up to their wildly successful single, "Over There." Focus Your Audio received national and international radio play and received rave reviews from around the world, including here at home by Canadian legend Ron Sexsmith. With "Over There" receiving over 100K streams since it's release and being featured in Canadian Beats, Aesthetic Magazine & Indie Week Canada 2020, it's easy to understand why they've been coined "one of Vancouver's best kept secrets" by legendary Canadian producer, Adam Hurstfield.

"On Your Own" was written for those who always need to leave and for the ones who ask them to stay. Lyrically penned from opposing points of view, this song is a gentle whisper of a heartfelt cry personifying the rawness of personal truth from every angle. "Not everyone we love chooses to stay and not everyone who asks us to stay understands why we can't." - Focus Your Audio

Released May 28th & receiving over 10,000 streams in it's first week, this new Indie-Folk, Roots-infused/Americana track was produced/engineered by Canadian music powerhouse Mike Young (bassist - Mother Mother) and co-engineered by Karl Dicaire (Mother Mother, Iskwe, Big Wreck). With no limit to where this duo's vocal, lyrical & musical integrity can take them, be prepared for their innate ability to empathically capture the peaks and valleys of life and transcend it into songs of true experience.  

Focus Your Audio had the incredible opportunity to work with music executive, Rich Fayden. This collaboration brought the official EDM remix of "On Your Own (StoneBridge Mixes)" by Grammy nominated, Swedish DJ & record producer StoneBridge. Having dropped June 25th & receiving over 7,500 streams in it's first week of release, the remix was featured on SiriusXM StoneBridge BPM Mix Ch 51 July 3rd!!

On Our Radar: Focus Your Audio Vancouver, BC - December 11, 2020

"The track delivers a strain of country that might be described as ethereal gothic, with thunderclap percussion and blackheart guitar leavened by McCarthur’s angels-and-whiskey vocals. The sunfaded video, beautifully shot by Jonathan Fluevog, smartly keeps things simple—forget clichés like pushing the washing machine down the stairs and smashing everything including the family urn, what we get is two people connecting in glorious nature."
