Hard rock and metal band, Lovey was forged in the mind of guitarist Omar Marshall while in Philadelphia...the concept of Lovey was realized in Baltimore in 2010 when a chance social media ad brought him in contact with bassist/vocalist and Baltimore native Ray Donaldson. Throughout various lineups and finding their sound, they solidified their three piece ruckus of a heaviness when they found hard-hitting drummer, Darin Young in 2015. The three of them have gone on to share their love of music, pop culture, and all things heavy in their songwriting and performances. With their sound hard to pin down to any one style...the constant signature is heavy riffage and raw emotion wrapped up in brutal story telling...behold LOVEY! Lovey is distributed by Manta Ray Records.
