The Beaches are a Canadian alternative rock band from Toronto, Ontario,[1] consisting of singer and bassist Jordan Miller, guitarist Kylie Miller, guitarist and keyboardist Leandra Earl and drummer Eliza Enman-McDaniel.[2]

Sisters Jordan and Kylie Miller joined with Enman-McDaniel and guitarist Megan Fitchett in their early teens to form the pop punk quartet Done with Dolls.[2] That band undertook a tour in 2011 opening for Allstar Weekend,[3] and performed the theme song to the Family Channel teen sitcom Really Me.[3] By 2013, Fitchett had left and been replaced by Earl, and the band adopted a more adult sound and the name The Beaches.[2]

They released two EPs, The Beaches (2013) and Heights (2014), before signing to Universal Music Canada and Island Records in 2016. They released their debut full-length studio album Late Show in 2017.[4] The album was produced by Emily Haines and James Shaw of Metric.[5]

The band won Breakthrough Group of the Year at the Juno Awards of 2018.[6] Later that year, they received a SOCAN Songwriting Prize nomination for their song "Money".[7]
