  • While they were excited to be part of last year’s Repository Battle of the Bands, the members of Good Hours don’t look back fondly on their performance that night.
    “I don’t think we knew what we were doing,” vocalist-guitarist Paul Clifford says.
    “I don’t think we played well at all,” says bassist Greg Snier.
    In the ensuing year, Good Hours has gained considerable experience from playing shows at The Auricle, Buzzbin, Peabody’s and The Vortex. In January, the band released an EP with six original songs.
    “The sound has evolved a lot, (due to) local influences we’ve come across playing shows and going to shows as a group,” guitarist Wyatt Zelle says.
    “I think we’re more mature. We think about our songs a lot harder,” Snier says. “It takes longer to write now, which is a good thing.”
    The guys are enthused about Canton’s growing music community, fueled by the Auricle and Buzzbin venues.
    “Our eyes really opened to that,” Snier says. “It’s a bigger scene than we knew of.”
    “It’s a really good community of people, and you all share something,” Clifford says.
    As for the band’s future, guitarist Wyatt Zelle says, “I think we want to go as far with it as we can, and make as much music together as we can.”
    “Play as many shows as we can,” Clifford adds. “And keep writing songs until we can record the next EP.”
