Lovecoast is Danielle Sweeney, Andrew Fraser, Matt Aasen, Jesse McNeill and Phil Hamelin.
Since their inception in 2013 Lovecoast has been delivering a new sound that won’t go unnoticed. Their blends of old soul, fresh pop and hard hitting grooves leave you feeling fresh and nostalgic all at once. After a successful 2015 gracing stages like Pemberton Music Festival, Lovecoast didn’t let 2016 slow them down. Along with the release of their single ‘The Floor’, this 5-piece soul-pop group was selected to showcase at JUNOfest 2016, played LG104.3FM’s SHOREFEST opening for Trooper, and were named Band of the Month for April 2016 at Victoria's modern rock station The Zone 91.3FM.
Just like their 2014 debut EP “Chasing Tides”, Lovecoast’s single ‘The Floor’ was produced and engineered by JUNO nominated and WCMA award winning producer/engineer Tom Dobrzanski (Hey Ocean, Said the Whale, We Are The City). Once again, the partnership with Dobrzanski brought out their best as ‘The Floor’ glimmers with mature pop stylings and 80-synth inspiration, truly speaking to Lovecoast's dance driven nature and tight musicality.
Made up of Vancouver Island University music school graduates, Lovecoast is an up-and-coming band exampling what happens when you never truly leave the classroom. From combo class to large Canadian festival stages, the band has never lost their passion for taking their music just a little bit further. Fast forward to 2017 and Lovecoast is hard at work on their debut LP, and will be releasing new music sooner than you think!
