Biography

In the heart of Canada’s largest city, Forest City Lovers — Kat Burns
(vocals/guitar/piano), Kyle Donnelly (bass/guitar/vocals), Mika Posen
(violin/piano/vocals) and a string of drummers — have strived to tame
the urban wilderness and add some melody to the chaos.

Forest City Lovers, burst onto Toronto’s music scene with the release
of their 2006 album, The Sun and the Wind. Released independently with
the help of some talented friends, The Sun and the Wind a ten song
journey through landscapes of cities and summer days, was a breath of
fresh air and exposed the talent of emerging songwriter Kat Burns.
Chart called the record “delightfully engaging” while Exclaim
proclaimed Burns “enigmatic and subtly inventive.”

While touring in support of their debut record, Forest City Lovers
developed into a cohesive and complete unit. With their new
collaborative approach the band headed back in the studio to record
twelve new songs.

With the help of their dear friends, previous drummer Jamie Bunton and
Heather Kirby (Ohbijou), the band hunkered down for nine-months at
their fledgling studio, Kirby’s Dreamland, in Toronto.

These sessions birthed Haunting Moon Sinking which straddles the line
between heartbreakingly beautiful and intimately powerful. Forest City
Lovers’ new album explores themes of love and life with lush and
poignant orchestration. With members of Ohbijou, Snailhouse,
Hylozoists, the Pill and other Toronto talents filling out chorused
vocals and swelling string arrangements, Haunting Moon Sinking steps
into a natural progression from the band’s previous effort.

The songs of Forest City Lovers are catchy, yet fragile, and hope to
melt your heart, or at least make it beat.
