About Back Seat Lovers:
The Backseat Lovers is a young indie rock band from Heber City and Sandy, UT, featuring Joshua Harmon on lead vocals/guitar, Jonas Swanson on lead guitar/vocals, KJ Ward: on bass guitar, and Juice Welch on drums.
The band started when Josh, having heard of local drummer Juice Welch, introduced himself and asked if he wanted to start a band. They immediately started working on arrangements for some of Josh's songs. Later Josh met lead guitarist and vocalist Jonas Swanson while waiting in line for an open mic at the Velour in Provo city. Neither of them got on the list to play that night, so they sat on a park bench outside the venue and played their songs to each other until they ran out of stuff to play. Josh invited Jonas to come down and play with him and Juice. It was that night that Out of Tune, a song Josh had been holding onto since he was 16, came to life when they arranged it as a group.
In spring of 2018 the band began recording together. They released their self produced EP Elevator Days on June 3, 2018 and played their first show a few short weeks after.
They released their first full length LP, When We Were Friends in 2019. The group is currently writing new material that they say is a product of the co-writing chemistry that has grown between Jonas & Joshua since their friendship began.
