Feel An Emotion: Lost Cousins Live at Adelaide Hall in Toronto!

It all started on the first day of University…

No, it’s not a love story, but Lost Cousins is the product of members Dylan and Cam living on the same floor on a Queen’s University dorm and playing songs together on acoustic guitars. Over the next two years they picked up Lloyd and Thomas, and eventually started writing and playing their own music after getting things started the old fashioned way… playing covers.

Thomas, Dylan, Lloyd. missing in action… Cam

If we zoom out a little more, we find out that the boys all bring their own musical influences to the table. From Metal (Thomas) to Ska (Lloyd) to the more contemporary sounds of Arcade Fire and Jack Johnson (Dylan), it seems Lost Cousins wasn’t so much destined to be as much as it was the right combination of influence, taste, and talent.

Less than three years into their run writing and performing their own music Lost Cousins already have some major milestones checked off. The boys played the WayBold stage on Sunday at WayHome 2015, they finished Top 10 in the 2015 CBC Searchlight Contest, and with their US visas in hand they have designs on crossing the border shortly to play for crowds in New York City, Boston, and Nashville.

Add in gigs like the Oh Geronimo album release party at Adelaide Hall in Toronto and it’s clear that things are on the right track for these four dudes.

We asked Dylan, Lloyd, and Thomas about Lost Cousins’ creative process and found out that the seeds of songs often start with Dylan and Cam, whether it’s a riff or a melody or just an idea, and then the band gets to work writing songs and arrangements that are ready for the studio and the stage.

Lost Cousins Album ArtThey also told us that the planning stages of a full-length album have begun, with a plan to nail down single worthy tracks, and a cohesive album that works as one piece of art from start to finish.

Before we let the band get stage ready we also asked who they’ve been listening to lately (because we’re always looking for new music) and got an awesome list that included Tame Impala, Hey Rosetta!, Yukon Blonde, Seoul, and Tears For Fears.

Big love to Lost Cousins for hanging out before they’re fun loving set on the Adelaide Hall stage. Seriously, these boys put on a great set putting their musicianship on display, and giving us something that music has seriously been lacking… saxophone!

Note: It would be negligent and foolish not to tell you how much we enjoyed the performances by Sweet And Lowdown, Texas King, and Oh Geronimo too. Friday really was a good night for live music at Adelaide Hall in Toronto!

Check out the tracks online, and the video for Feel An Emotion, and keep an eye out for a live show near you, because that’s where they shine brightest.

The boys told us that performing on stage is pretty much their favourite thing ever, but seeing is believing.

We saw it. We believe it.
