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 upcoming 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 70,000 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. Written 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, 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.

Indie Week 2020 - Benjamin Gibson Toronto, ON - January 25, 2021

"Bobby McAloney and Sarah McArthur are two artists from Vancouver British Columbia and two halves of Focus Your Audio. The team describes their music as somewhere between folk, Americana, and good old-fashioned rock and roll. The mix of sounds and the band’s unique and beautiful result is probably a result of the two’s unique upbringings."

The Georgia Straight

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."
