PLUG-IN MUSIC says, "Optimistic, heartfelt indie super pop -- Maybe it is Pacific Coast’s light, upbeat songs or their uplifting lyrics but there is something almost religious about this pop oriented Los Angeles band."

Biography

The Pacific Coast Band is an association of select artists, writers and performers providing intelligent and inspiring entertainment arts to a widespread and loyal audience.

The Pacific Coast Band first formed in North Hollywood in 2006 from the Kulak's Woodshed Wednesday Night Jam Session with a faithful performance of the Beach Boys' masterwork "Good Vibrations."

With Patrick William Horn (aka Dr Duke) as producer and a core of Woodshed players, including Tom Hubbard on vocals and Bruce Grossman on guitars, the ensemble took their organic sound to the Sunset Strip and beyond, with five songs from the band's 2007 offering, Pacific Coast, on FM radio across the USA.

Critics rave for the album, including CDBaby Editor’s Pick for Best Sunshine Pop and California Pop, a 4-star review from the indie music trendsetter, Plug-In Music, Synthesis Magazine's "Band of the Day", SongNet: Los Angeles Songwriter's Network honors, etc.

In addition to being an Internet hit (#22 on Myspace), the group was also a contender for 2008 GRAMMY nomination in six categories and received honors from the Great American Songwriter Contest.

After a near-fatal car crash in February 2008, Dr. Duke and Miss eLiza celebrated life and sang their hearts out at the first L.A. Indie Music Spotlight hosted at Kulak's Woodshed.

Lyrics

Shine! Shine! Shine!

Written By: Patrick William Horn; adapted from Walt Whitman

Shine! Shine! Shine!
Shine you warmth, great sun!
Shine! Shine! Shine!
Shine your love, sweet love!

I wander all night in my vision
I dream in my dreams
All the dreams of other dreamers
Laugh and play, whirling me

Shine! Shine! Shine!
Shine you warmth, great sun!
Shine! Shine! Shine!
Shine your love, sweet love!

Winds blow north
Winds blow south
Oceans and mountains and home!

Shine! Shine! Shine!
Shine you warmth, great sun!
Shine! Shine! Shine!
Shine your love, sweet love!

The flutter and whistle of the wind
The dance of the leaves
Songs of joy and happy life
In the air, the woods and fields

Shine! Shine! Shine!
Shine you warmth, great sun!
Shine! Shine! Shine!
Shine your love, sweet love!

Winds blow east
Winds blow west
Oceans and mountains and home!

Everything I Need

Written By: Patrick William Horn/Ian Krupp/Jessie Maltin/Jonah Chilk

Here we stand
You and me
Hold my hand
Dream with me

Meet me at my window
Collapse into a dream...of sweet love
Meet me at my window
You’re everything I need

Follow as it goes
Follow your soul
Travel that long road
Like a moonlit stroll

Meet me at my window
Collapse into a dream...of sweet love
Meet me at my window
You’re everything I need

I learn to breathe you in
Like sunlight on my skin
I learn to breathe you in
In your arms again

Here we stand
In reverie
Hand in hand
Come away with me

Meet me at my window
Collapse into a dream...of sweet love
Meet me at my window
You’re everything I need

I wanna hold on to you!

Angel

Written By: Patrick William Horn; adapted from Thomas Traherne

How like an angel you came down
How like an angel flying near the ground
I saw new worlds beneath the water lie
I saw new people and another sky

Oh, my love, how soft! How sweet!
Touch me, feel the heat
Oh, my love

How like an angel singin’ on high
How like an angel from above the sky
Wonders on earth and over the moon
Leap into bliss, I’ll see you soon

Oh, my love, how soft! How sweet!
Touch me, feel the heat
Oh, my love

Destiny

Written By: Patrick William Horn

You smile at me then you touch my face
Charming me with your soft embrace
It’s magic, it’s true
This love, me and you

My one, Destiny
The one, Destiny

Lean in close, for your kisses sweet
My oh my, I can feel your heart beat
I love you, yes I do, I do

My one, Destiny
The one, Destiny

Meant To Be

Written By: Patrick William Horn

I love when you hold me
I hope you feel the same
Like when the sunshine
Chases away the rain
In those hours of darkness, my dear
You’re the one
Who wiped away my tears

High above the mountains
Deep below the sea
I know our love is meant to be
Beyond the stars
A distant galaxy
I know our love is meant to be

I love when you hug me
Caress and touch my soul
In your power
Like a seed I grow
I need you now
Like never before
With you in my life
In the sky I soar

High above the mountains
Deep below the sea
I know our love is meant to be
Beyond the stars
A distant galaxy
I know our love is meant to be

Sunlight

Written By: Patrick William Horn

Sunlight,
I dream of the love you give to me
Sunlight,
I dream of the joy you give to me

Sunlight, Sunlight
Magic and wonder fill all our lives
The power in the spirit of you and I
Beneath a clear blue sky

Sunlight,
I dream of the touch you give to me
Sunlight,
I dream of the kiss you give to me

Sunlight, Sunlight
Magic and wonder fill all our lives
The power in the spirit of you and I
Beneath a clear blue sky

Sunlight, Sunlight
The streets of California surprisingly cold
The town lights up at sunset and dreams
Beneath a starless sky

Full Moon Fever

Written By: Patrick William Horn

Full moon fever (yeah, yeah!)

Late tonight when the sun goes down
Jump in my car, let’s get outta town
Drivin’ north on the 101
Kissin’ all night next to the ocean

Full moon fever (yeah, yeah!)
Dancin’ through the streets
Fire in your heartbeats
Electric in the air
Burnin’ in your stare, yeah!

Sit back, relax, drink a glass of wine
Wearin’ that hat, you’re lookin’ so fine
The taste of your perfume on my lips
The palm of my hand on your hips

Full moon fever (yeah, yeah!)
Dancin’ through the streets
Fire in your heartbeats
Electric in the air
Burnin’ in your stare, yeah!

Candles in my room, burnin’ so bright
Huggin’ and squeezin’ you all night
Love all around us—
I’ll make you a believer
Give yourself over to the full moon fever

Full moon fever (yeah, yeah!)
Dancin’ through the streets
Fire in your heartbeats
Electric in the air
Burnin’ in your stare, yeah!

I Want You (You're Mine)

Written By: Patrick William Horn

I must get out....I must get to you
I must tell it to you myself...
you are my spring
My everything...
only you in these bright days

I don’t want roses from the garden
or the meadows
I don’t want the forest
or its scents and sounds and shadows

I want you...you’re mine

I wanna get out...I wanna get to you
I wanna tell it to you myself...
you are my spring
My everything...
only you in these bright days

I don’t want the hills,
the blowing air or rushing waves
I don’t want the birds
singing their songs all day

I want you...you’re mine
