A five-piece jam and alternative rock outfit hailing from Nashville, Moon Taxi quickly built a local following, which soon led to a record deal with 12th South Records. Members Trevor Terndrup (vocals), Spencer Thomson (guitar), Tommy Putnam (bass), Wes Bailey (keyboards), and Tyler Ritter (drums) released their debut album, Melodica, in 2007. Their next step, logically, was to keep their audiences happy and promote their album the old-fashioned way: with many, many gigs. A concert album titled Live Ride followed in 2008, and their second proper album, Cabaret, appeared in 2012. Moon Taxi signed to BMG for distribution of their 2013 LP Mountains Beaches Cities. The album led to their songs being licensed for TV and commercials, their first appearances on U.S. late-night TV including Late Show with David Letterman, and performances at music festivals such as Bonnaroo, the Governor’s Ball, and Lollapalooza. Their fourth studio LP, Daybreaker, was released in October 2015, followed in 2016 by another live album, New Year's Eve 2015. A single in early 2017, "Two High," showcased a brighter, pop-oriented sound. Later that year, another single, "Let the Record Play," arrived along with the announcement of Moon Taxi's impending fifth LP -- also called Let the Record Play -- which was released in January 2018.
LUTHI routinely brings the party. “Boogie Circus” is the most colorful description of their sound so far. “We like the term Cumberland Funk too,” says front man Christian Luthi, with an easy chuckle. What’s very evident in talking with (what they call) “The LUTHI Crew” is the shared passion for helping others let loose. And let loose they will.
Traveling in a pack that can be likened to big bands of days gone by, the members of LUTHI have honed in on the one thing that all of them can agree on; “keeping it weird”. Drawing from influences that include soul and R&B acts from the 1960’s, psychedelic funk and groove from the 70’s, and New Wave rock and roll from the 80’s, LUTHI then turns the ingredients into their own stew of modern dance music, with lyrics and melodies that only continue to open themselves up to listeners with each new spin.
