Calm Canopy is the solo project of Canadian multi instrumentalist and producer Mike Papaloni. With influences ranging from Broken Social Scene, Tame Impala, Khruangbin to Mac Demarco and Takuya Kuroda, he records and produces his music in his bedroom studio. On his latest single Moss he comments:
During our time spent living on Vancouver Island, my girlfriend was visiting home in Toronto for a week but I decided to stay back and write… I quickly realized how uncomfortable it was to spend time in complete solitude without the distraction of the internet or some other digital convenience of the modern world. I wrote and recorded Moss on the second day of that week, and spent the rest of the week trying to meditate and appreciate the solitude rather than distract myself from it.
