Short Bio

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 is the Alberta Winner in the 2021 Jim Beam National Talent Search and are recipients of the 2019 YYC Music Awards People's Choice Award, Top 10 CBC Searchlight 2019 Finalists. They were also nominated for Alternative Recording of the Year and People's Choice Award at the 2021 YYC Music Awards. Finding success through their genuine passion and identifiable sound, Taken By Sanity is gaining momentum in the Calgary live music scene and is only getting started.
