Doucette, the band’s drummer, brought in Nathan Tozer as the lead guitarist, and Milligan added his girlfriend Beth Harbord to accompany him on lead vocals, as well as to play the keys. “Beth and I had already been singing together every day as it was so she decided to join the band. It really adds something to the sound having that second lead vocalist and that strong female voice. It really helped create our sound.”

Martell, the bass player, said the band’s influences are hard to pin down. “Our sound definitely originates from old blues and R&B of the 50s, 60s as well as classic rock from the late 60s, early 70s.” Groups like The Rolling Stones, The Guess Who, The Eagles. “But there is also an element of 90s alternative like Pearl Jam in there,” he added.

The band formed six months ago and most recently, has been playing as much as possible. “We’ve been fairly busy the last couple months just trying to gain some recognition and a fan base,” said Doucette.

The band is in the process of writing and recording its debut album, which is set for release late summer or early fall. Brent Chaisson from Studio Dimanche in Miscouche will be producing the album and Milligan said the band is excited for the process. “Brent knows exactly the sound and feel we want and is determined to get that for us. We’re all very excited.”

Lost Haven will be live at Baba’s Lounge on June 17.
