Future Generations is Eddie Gore, Mike Sansevere and Eric Grossman — who first met in the dorms of Fordham University – and fellow Fordham graduate Devon Sheridan. As luck would have it their college housing came with a built-in practice room and a piano in the foyer that encouraged artistic collaboration. The three quickly bonded over a shared interest: a nerd-like, academic appreciation of all forms of pop music.
Future Generations’ music contradicts the assumption that music always reflects the objective time and place in which its creators operated. When penning lyrics to the first EP, which would eventually catch the ears of Frenchkiss Records, Eddie shirked references to collegiate lawns, Jesuit lineage and other specific milieu of college life. Instead the lyrics reflect the struggle with finding individual meaning in an infinitely large world and sharing those anxieties with loved ones.
The Lagoons, originally from Los Angeles, California, multi-instrumentalist brothers Joey and Ryan Selan grew up playing saxophone and trumpet in their middle school jazz band. Continuing to play throughout high school, the brothers developed a passion for the rock and dance music of the 1970s and 1980s. Ryan eventually picked up guitar while Joey learned piano and the two began writing their first music together. Fast forward to 2015 where the brothers officially formed The Lagoons in Austin, Texas. Their unique blend of synth-pop, jazz, soul and electronica was first heard on their Summer 2016 single 'California' and was followed up by their Spring 2017 Gems EP.
California has since been featured twice as the #1 Most Popular Track on Hype Machine and was used in a Golf Digest/BMW ad series starring supermodel Kate Upton and baseball star Justin Verlander. You can also hear 'California' featured in the Netflix series «Easy» as well as throughout Bose retail stores internationally. The Lagoons are currently finishing up their second studio EP scheduled for an early 2018 release. Some primary musical influences of The Lagoons include Daft Punk, Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac, Radiohead, Tom Petty, Dave Matthews Band, alt-J, and Zero 7. Come out and see Future Generations and The Lagoons at The Basement on June 12th!
