Coastal is the hybrid of several musicians who have played out for years in their respective bands, yet have never really made the music they wanted to. Jason Gough has been involved in shoegaze style bands for several years and it was through such bands that he met up with Josh Callaway. The two started to write songs together and shortly enlisted Jim Harker to take on drum duties. With the main structure in formation, the three felt the music needed something more. Luisa Gough took on keyboard duties to complete coastals current line-up.
We toured the summer of 2000 and 2001 and played the Troubadour in LA. That was a definite highlight. Opened for LOW in London at the Union Chapel. Best show ever.
