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. By bringing "together modern day indie pop and blue-eyed ’70s R&B” (Ride the Tempo), the band has created something bouncy and infectious. Lovecoast finds inspiration in modern acts like the Cat Empire and Lake Street Dive, and classic legends such as Billie Holiday and Bruce Springsteen. Uniquely fresh and nostalgic all at once, Lovecoast is an up-and-coming act from the West Coast of Canada to watch.
