Forest City Lovers are a Canadian folk indie pop band. Based in Toronto, the band is centered around the songwriting of singer and guitarist Kat Burns. She is backed by violinist Mika Posen, bassist Kyle Donnelly, keyboardist Timothy Burton and drummer Christian Ingelevics.
Forest City Lovers began as the solo project of singer-songwriter Kat Burns, from Whitby, Ontario, when she moved to Toronto to go to school in 2005 and began to play around the city. Soon after establishing herself as a talented young songwriter, Burns released her independent solo EP For the Birds in early 2005.
Collecting close friends and peers she assembled Forest City Lovers over the period of recording at the House of Miracles with Andy Magoffin. Original band members included James Bunton and Andrew Kinoshita on drums and bass. She released The Sun and the Wind, independently in 2006 under the Forest City Lovers moniker. The single "Castles!" was playlisted on CBC Radio 3 and the album charted quite high nationally after its release. In 2007, Mika Posen joined the band on violin. The band contributed a track, "Don't Go, Please", to the charity compilation Friends in Bellwoods. In late 2007 Bunton and Kinoshita were replaced by Paul Weadick and Kyle Donnelly on drums and bass.The Sun and the Wind fared well on campus radio stations across Canada and the United States, and garnered airplay on CBC Radio One, CBC Radio 2 and CBC Radio 3. The band toured extensively and secured fans far outside of their Toronto home. The band was called a "Band to look out for" in 2008 by eye weekly, the "best band you've never heard of" by Spin, and a "mess of cute girls and boys who sing about life in Toronto" by Nylon.
