About Band

Staten Island, New York's newest 4 piece band, Canvas Radio, has a history before it even officially came together in March of 2010. 2 of the founding members, Mike Diamantopoulos (Bass) and Greg Schwab (Drums), have worked together on a number of musical projects and also have been founding members of local bands such as Amethyst and Eyes of Argus. Since the early 90's this duo have proven their longevity when it comes to writing music as a team and being the backbone of every project they have been involved in. Looking to pick at their own creative minds, Greg and Mike teamed up with singer/songwriter Charlie Toro whose earlier musical contributions include singing/co-songwriting with the late 90's local band Organic Juice and 2008's solo project Charlie Who? All 3 band members have crossed paths before when both Amethyst and Organic Juice shared a few stages as well as had a regular rehearsal space down the hall from each other.
  Since the band's inception, the guys felt a fourth element was needed to bring out the full potential of the music they were writing and in December of 2011, they officially added that element in native Staten Islander and Pianist, Kelley Olson whose background includes songwriting and teaching at Staten Island's "School Of Rock". Now with more than a decade of writing experience behind them Charlie, Greg and Mike and the addition of Kelley, these 4 collectively known as Canvas Radio have come together to display their own brand of creative evolution.
