About weekdays on the beach:

Conceived from the love of life and obsession with all things music, weekdays on the beach is a passion project representing the serendipitous intersection of two artists’ paths to self-discovery. Born and raised just minutes from the west coast, the weekdays (Russell Fong & Amanda Inouye) have spent their weekdays on the beach and their weekends performing music for as long as they can remember. 

Like binary stars, the two dominate their own artistic sphere but revolve around each other– a rare illustration of true synthesis and artistic integration. Fong, an uncompromising classically trained musician and self-taught producer/engineer, approaches every aspect of his artistry with a limitless mindset; from sources of inspiration to genre to number of synths in production, if boundaries exist, they were made to be broken. Singer, songwriter, and sound designer Inouye pairs soft and sweet vocals with intimate, introspective lyrics, often drawn to the more nuanced emotions the universe offers. A perfect blend of nostalgia and deja vu, the sound of the weekdays is reminiscent of a song you’ve heard in a dream a million times before.
