800beloved is a Michigan-based group formed from the writing & production of singer/songwriter, Sean Lynch. The group's moniker, taken from a 1-800 telephone number, hints at the merger between two opposing themes - "800" representing the interest in popular culture's flimsiness while "beloved" alludes to the lyrical use of sacred, often dismal and ironically naive subject matter.
Having distributed music in many formats, including pill-shaped thumb drives and limited cassette singles before signing with the Moodgadget label in 2008, 800beloved delivered their long awaited debut album 'Bouquet' in CD format on Valentine's Day 2009 at C Pop gallery in Detroit. Their second album, 'Everything Purple' was originally released in April 2010 and later pulled from online distribution following Lynch's request to end licensing agreements with Moodgadget. In September 2010, the majority of the group's recordings including both albums were independently re-released in digital audio formats.
The outfit currently rehearses and records in Milford, Michigan where Lynch also works as a cosmetologist & assistant for a funeral home.
