Born and raised in the suburbs of Los Angeles, California, multi-instrumentalist brothers Joey and Ryan Selan formed the production duo The Lagoons in 2015. Their unique blend of genres was first heard on their 2016 single 'California' and was followed up by their 2017 'Gems EP' and 2018 ‘Escape EP’.

With over 35 million streams across platforms, 'California' has reached the #1 Most Popular Track on Hype Machine on multiple occasions. It has also been featured in a Golf Digest / BMW ad series starring supermodel Kate Upton and baseball star Justin Verlander as well as the Netflix series "Easy", and is currently on a featured product display throughout Bose retail stores internationally. The Lagoons released their 'Escape EP', headlined two national tours in 2018, and will be releasing a new string of singles in 2019.

Beautiful jazzy, electro-pop fusion with a rock twist. Calm and groovy, smooth vocals dance over glittery synths and a mellow saxophone.
