|Associated acts||Done with Dolls|
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 in their hometown of Toronto. The band undertook a tour in 2011 opening for Allstar Weekend, and performed the theme song to the Family Channel teen sitcom Really Me. By 2013, Fitchett had left and been replaced by Earl, and the band adopted a more adult sound and the name The Beaches, named after the neighborhood of Toronto where the Millers and Enman-McDaniel grew up.
The Beaches 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. The album was produced by Emily Haines and James Shaw of Metric.
The band won Breakthrough Group of the Year at the Juno Awards of 2018. Later that year, they received a SOCAN Songwriting Prize nomination for their song "Money". The band was selected as the opening act for the only Canadian stop on the Rolling Stones' 2019 No Filter Tour.
