Born in PA then raised on a Christmas tree farm in Maryland, self-taught local artist of the week Lukr began playing music as a kid beginning on an $80 piano. After forming and fronting his first band Farewell Flight at 17, he led them on dozens of successful DIY coast-to-coast tours in the US, playing hundreds of shows before relocating to Nashville, TN.
Self-styled as “neon grunge pop”, Lukr’s uniquely textured vocal and instantly nostalgic lyrics weave among organic instruments and shimmering sample-based pop tracks. The visually compelling live presentation features Lukr leading multiple co-creators, playing a what looks like creative musical chairs as they trade on and off with synths, guitars, trap sets and drum machines. Having released both a video for Scarecrow and a remix for Fucked Up Summer in the fall, he rounded out the year with a cover of a favorite song, Counting Crows’ A Long December. 2017 finds Lukr preparing to release a deluge of music with a series of mixtapes.
