The Beaches

Captivating the indie scene with rich 80s-tinted melodies and quick-witted lyrics, The Beaches have unleashed their neighbourhood namesake group onto the music world with Eliza Enman-McDaniel (on drums) and Leandra Earl (on keys and guitar) and sisters Jordan and Kylie Miller (on lead vocals/bass and guitar, respectively). They’ve been named one of Canada’s greatest acts by Exclaim magazine, and the proof is in the plays with 6 no. 1 singles on Canadian Alt Radio and their single “Grow Up Tomorrow” at #1 on Alternative & Rock radio in Canada for seven weeks.

Known for their rousing live performances that summon their audience into a realm of intoxicating energy and an undeniable connection, The Beaches have opened for Avril Lavigne, The Rolling Stones, Foo Fighters, Alanis Morissette, The Aces, Passion Pit, and the Eagles of Death Metal, as well as being guest performers at the She Rocks awards in Los Angeles in April 2023. There is no denying their lure on the stage and in everyone’s playlists, including the great Elton John, who called their album “Late Show” the “best album of last year.” They’ve sold out two shows at History in Toronto (2400 tickets per night) and received critical acclaim in Prelude Press, KUTX, Indie88, Exclaim, Under The Radar, CBC, Luna Collective, Raydar Mag, and Pop Sugar.

After their 2X Juno wins in Breakthrough Artist (2018) and Rock Album of the Year (2022), it’s apparent that The Beaches are one of Canada’s biggest bands. See them this year at US summer festivals, including Lollapalooza, Boston Calling, Milwaukee Summer Fest, Beach Life and Wanderlust.

The Thing 

The band originated in High School when Michael Carter, Jack Bradley, and Zane Acord bonded over a shared love for rock & roll. Over the years they honed their craft, self recording and writing songs influenced by 60’s pioneers such as the Kinks, Grand Funk Railroad, and artists of The Nuggets Compilation. As they progressed in skill and knowledge the band started to envision a career inspired by the likes of Brian Jonestown Massacre, King Gizzard, and The Black Keys.

The Thing started playing shows and creating a buzz around New York City in the Winter of 2022. Shortly after, the band embarked on small tours up and down the east coast. Their energetic live performances earned the attention of honest music lovers. 

Their debut record “Here’s The Thing” was released in April 2023. The record is a compilation of songs written throughout the early years of the band. It was self recorded and produced deep in the hills of Sharon, CT, continued in their Crown Heights apartment, then finished in the band’s East Williamsburg studio, Onion Records. While each environment was set up with humble equipment, the band’s commitment for authentic recording and their passion for rock & roll is what makes the album unique.

With the album out in the wild and the addition of Lucas Ebeling on the kit, The Thing is relentlessly touring, recording new music, and breaching the modern world of rock & roll.
