The Lunde story
Three Wisconsin boys thrive on their differences. Cousins Nate Uhrich (lead vocals) and Jeremiah Lunde (drums) had long been passerby in each other's lives, with an 8 year age gap and living far away from each other. In 2018, the pair re-discovered their musical connection through a family trip. Soon after, Josh Janiak (bass) joined through a mutual friend and they decided to name the band “Lunde” (a family name).
Presenting a developed & pronounced musical imprint, the group quickly made themselves a fixture of the Indie scene between Milwaukee and Chicago, turning heads and garnering attention from indie staples including The Walters and BabyJake. Luke Olson (The Walters) states, “Lunde simply rips. Rock ‘n’ roll at its finest”.
Lunde’s first record ‘Living Strange’ highlights concise, engaging songwriting with sweet, familiar guitar tones and Beach Boys-esque harmonies. This debut project is well paired with the unexpected follow-up ‘Stickin Around’, which is comprised of mostly live studio takes, capturing the sound of their vigorous and unpredictable live performances.
On Lunde’s newest album, the band confronts some of the feelings that make us most human: happiness, heartbreak, numbness, and everything in between. This project is completed, awaiting release, and set to feature contributions from many popular indie contemporaries. The band considers this their new essential record.
Founding member and frontman Nate Uhrich has played an important role in crafting the group’s sound. His musical journey began taking shape in middle school when a friend turned him on to The Beatles. In high school, he started diving into artists like Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson, Mac Demarco, and Cage The Elephant.
