Austin’s Los Coast is a bit of a head scratcher. Like, what the hell is it? Where the hell did they come from? And, where can I get some more? Not even 2 years into their musical career and Los Coast managed to secure a semi-permanent residency at the influential South Congress club C-Boys and landed an opening spot at the 2016 ACL Music Festival. You can watch exclusive video of a backstage performance at the festival HERE.
So, how did they get so damn good so fast? The magic started when newly minted Austinite and immensely talented vocalist Trey Privott joined forces with multi-instrumentalist/arranger John Courtney. Together, the two shaped a sound that draws straight from the essence of Austin music. Equal parts indie-rock, psych rock, and raw uncut soul, with a healthy smattering of smooth jazz, gospel, and world music. The group is currently working on heir first full-length record.
