Grizzly Coast is the musical project of Toronto based indie-rock musician Alannah Kavanagh. Her background as a poet, mixed with her lifelong affinity for playing music led her to blend the two mediums on her singles, Half-Light Boy and Zuzu’s Petals. Formerly performing as an acoustic singer-songwriter, Grizzly Coast showcases both an expansion into full-band indie rock territory and a commitment to free falling deeper into her lyricism on the song. In 2019, she is set to release a string of singles to promote her anticipated debut EP.
