Spirited, Positive, Natural
Lynn and Tanya; best friends, business partners, roommates, and quite possibly, soulmates, have been making music together since 2004. Comedic personalities, killer vocals and hot bods make this duo, the most dynamic duo, of all duo’s of all time. Catch them on stage, at a rave, in the sun or shade, during a parade, on ice skates, but mostly on bicyclettes…all over Toronto…if you can.
The duo is comprised of Lynn Moffatt (acoustic guitar/lead vocals) and Tanya Casole-Gouveia (rapper/dancer/egg shaker), best friends who met in University and share the SidePonySpirit. They started out jamming together on Saturday nights and Sunday mornings, which resulted in a sound that complements a wild and crazy Saturday night, or a chill and lazy Sunday morn. Their musical influence comes from The Spice Girls, Eminem, Salt’n Peppa, Britney Spears, Beyonce and The Red Hot Chilly Peppers, to name a few.
In the beginning, their songs were composed using sound loops and computer software, giving it a techno-pop sound. The girls eventually converted into acoustic chords and vocal harmonies which gave them more flexibility when it came to performance of the music. But now they are incorporating both elements into a fusion of sound. Many of their songs have been recorded and uploaded to YouTube.
The name SidePonyNation is largely due to a hairstyle that both Tanya and Lynn rock frequently for its ease, stylishness and versatility. Not only did they name their band after it, but they also wrote an ode to the SidePony in their first recorded song, “The SidePonyAnthem.”
