8OObeloved is a Michigan-based group formed from the writing & production of singer/songwriter, Sean Lynch. The group’s moniker, taken from a 1-800 telephone number, hints at the merger between two opposing themes -“800” representing the interest in popular culture’s flimsiness while “beloved” alludes to the lyrical use of sacred, often dismal and ironically naive subject matter.
Host to numerous contributors since the project’s beginning in September 2005, the current incarnation of the group, Anastasiya Metesheva & Sean Lynch, performs selectively throughout the Midwest. After three years of production, their debut LP, entitled BOUQUET, was launched in compact disc format on Valentine’s Day 2009 – the 44th release under the Moodgadget recording label. The album was released in digital format on March 3, 2009.
The group currently rehearses in Milford, Michigan where Lynch also works as a cosmetologist & assistant for a funeral home. [last.fm]
