Who am us?
Who am us?
Jeff Seidel - Unpredictable, but always entertaining, Jeff boasts an
extensive history writing, recording, producing, and playing music of all
genres. He brings a level of creative professionalism to the band. His
decorative use of acoustic guitar combined with a natural gift for writing
memorable choruses keeps the wandering spirit of Coastal People securely
grounded and sincere.
Jeff (aka. Jebby) Burns- Self-proclaimed as the "laziest person in the
world," Jebby epitomizes the fresh and free-thinking philosophy that underlies
the Coastal People sound. Jebby is a true experimentalist. His multi-tasking
mastery of all things musical, as well as his mechanical know-how as a luthier,
enable and ensure the longevity and thriving spontanaeity that propels the
Mary Lou Sweeney - Mary Lou's keen sense of humor and insightful
sensitivity require an audiences' full attention. A late bloomer, Lou trained
in classical piano, choral, and violin before emerging as one of the bands most
prolific songwriters. Her easy going style adds dimension and depth to the
collective Coastal People sound.
Carol Blum- Melodically motivated and musically moody, Carol is a
songwriter's songwriter. Her committment to the pursuit of happiness through
self-expression is evident by the volume of her creative works. Technically
innovative within the confines of traditional limitations, Carol manages to
cohesively blend lyrical harmony with unexpected simplicity.
Most bands attribute their success to hard work and dedication. Coastal People
rely on hardly working.
The main point is to have fun and do what comes naturally when four friends sit
around a living room strewn with musical instruments. Sound happens. Songs
seem to write themselves. Variety and vision are the common driving force
behind each individual's unique songwriting endeavors. The end result often
comes as a surprise, but always comes with a smile. One harmony begets
another. One line becomes a verse. One drink turns into a six pack (of what?)
and before you know it there's a sock monkey playing the blow piano over your
left shoulder. It's a beautiful thing. We sincerely hope you get it.
