ABOUT THE ARTIST
LUTHI routinely brings the party, and it’s a big one. “Boogie Circus” is the most colorful description of their sound so far. “We like the term Cumberland Funk too,” says frontman Christian Luthi, an homage to the river that flows through their Nashville home and a sound that blends the city's often under-appreciated musical history. 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, LUTHI has 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.
LUTHI's debut album "Stranger" is out now.
"When most people think of Nashville's music scene, it's true that the first thing that comes to mind for them would not be funk. A nine-piece collective, the city's LUTHI reminds us that there's more to their city than just country. With their new single, "Stranger", they do it as loudly and unapologetically as possible too. They are proving their mettle as a new take on the big band craze that is every bit as ensnaring and dance-worthy as the music that has made them." - PopMatters
"LUTHI creates a glorious new form of modern dance music that leaves listeners rabid for more...LUTHI is powerful live shows, unreal vocals, hypnotizing stage presence, and contagious, fun energy." - Live For Live Music
