Let’s Go Sailing are an American indie band founded by Shana Levy in 2002. After several years of work, the group completed their first album in 2006[1] and released it nationally in 2007. In addition to releasing one studio album and touring, several songs from the album have been featured in the television show Grey’s Anatomy.

History[edit]

Levy had previously performed with Rilo Kiley[2] and Irving, leaving in 2002.[3] She began recording with Tanya Haden, Nikki Monninger of the Silversun Pickups, Brent Turner, and Byron Reynolds. After four years, the band released their debut album, The Chaos in Order.

The album was self-released at the end of 2006, and Levy formed Yardley Pop Records to release the album nationally on March 27, 2007.[4]

Let's Go Sailing's T-shirt (designed by Shana Levy and Tanya Haden) won the 7th Annual Independent Music Awards in the Swag category.

Let’s Go Sailing are currently working on a new record.[1]
