Luke McLaughlin - Guitar & Drums

My first memories of playing music go back to playing around with a harmonica at a very young age. I moved on to guitar when I was twelve years old but it wasn’t until high school that I started taking lessons, practicing regularly and taking it seriously. My lessons had a focus on finger-style blues guitar, but I always had an appreciation for all types of music. I joined the drum-line in the high school marching band, as well as the jazz ensemble where I began playing the drums. Around this time I started recording myself and my friends at home and becoming familiar with the tech side of things.

Tyler Gunzenhauser

Tyler Gunzenhauser

Tyler is originally from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where he grew up as an only-child—unless you count his dogs, Newman and Gunnar, since Tyler’s mother always says the three of them are brothers. As a child, Tyler’s parents always encouraged him to try new things: sports, music, art, baking, science experiments, it was all fair-game in the Gunzenhauser household, but it was at the age of five that Tyler fell in love with the piano. In fact, that same love for the piano, having been nurtured by seventeen years of lessons, practice, performances, and even a college degree has grown into a love for all things music and inspired Tyler to pursue a musical career.
