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 been the #1 Most Popular Track on Hype Machine and has been featured in a Golf Digest/BMW ad series starring supermodel Kate Upton and baseball star Justin Verlander, the Netflix series "Easy", and throughout Bose retail stores on featured product display internationally. The Lagoons just released their Escape EP and will be touring North America Summer 2018.
