Taken By Sanity challenges the idea of the pop alternative genre by creating a unique, identifiable sound through their energetic drumming, extraordinary vocals, and astonishing performances.
Taken By Sanity is an emerging pop alternative group from Calgary, Alberta known for their unique blend of indie pop and rock melodies and captivating live performances. Established in 2016 by instrumentalist brothers Blaine and Blair, the two joined forces with high-energy vocalist Jonah Morris and have been writing, recording and performing their original music ever since. Following their debut release City of Contrast and EP Saturn Days, Paper Child is an enthralling single that follows a conversation between an individual and an idealized version of their younger self, during a time of emotional stress; a plea to reconnect with a side of themselves that had been lost in time. The band’s latest project is an honest and exciting development in their discography.
Taken By Sanity are recipients of the 2019 YYC Music Awards Peoples Choice Award, Top 10 CBC Searchlight 2019 Finalists, and finalist in the Yangaroo Indie Spotlight 2020. They were also nominated for Group of the Year, People's Choice Award, and the Zackariah and The Prophets Memorial Award at the 2020 YYC Music Awards.
