East Love is an acoustic indie-pop group based in New York City. Band members include Lukas Effman (lead vocals), Rob Fink (acoustic guitar, vocals), Alex Goldstein (ukulele, bass, vocals), Alex Utay (bass, guitar), Andy Koehler (keyboard), and Kyle McCarter (drums).
Lukas, Robbie, & Alex Goldstein have been playing together since their high school days, Robbie & Alex Utay were in a band together in college, and they all teamed up when they moved to New York City in late 2012. East Love is focused on writing, recording, and performing honest music - both from a lyrical and instrumentation standpoint. The band weaves in pop influences, but always keeps the music grounded in real instruments and lots of vocal harmonies. East Love has performed to sold out crowds at a number of iconic New York City venues including Brooklyn Bowl, The Highline Ballroom, Joe’s Pub, The Studio at Webster Hall, The Gramercy Theatre, The Marlin Room at Webster Hall, Rockwood Music Hall, and The Cutting Room. East Love is currently working on new music for release in 2018, so stay tuned!
