The family roots of Lunde run deep, both literally and in spirit. Cousins Jeremiah Lunde and Nate Uhrich originally conceived the band in 2018, when they were re-introduced to each other’s musical inclinations. Soon after, they started collaborations with some of Kenosha’s best young talent, and the band’s debut album Living Strange began to take shape. Bringing in many influences, from Twin Peaks to Tame Impala, Bob Dylan, and Oasis, the album was a perfect storm. The album features the elements of their trademark sound, like the analog production, reminiscent of 60s and 70s rock records. Since the release of Living Strange in June of 2020, the band has expanded to a 5 piece superpower which consists of Nate Uhrich, Jeremiah Lunde, Joshua Janiak, Evan Steidtman, and Logan Haller.
Each member brings a unique and vital set of talents to the band, making their live show a highly energetic and exciting experience. You never know what’s going to happen at a Lunde show and it’s what keeps fans coming back time and time again. The band is always striving for those magic moments when the musicians can connect through the music and create deep emotion through sounds and songs that may not have existed before. But most of all, the group wants to have a good time and make every project a positive and special experience for everyone involved, all while still maintaining their high, professional standard of quality. The MILF podcast says that "Lunde is like a breath of fresh air”. Rock n roll is not dead, not for Lunde at least.
There since the beginning, singer-songwriter Nate Uhrich has played an important role in informing the band’s sound. His musical journey started taking shape in middle school when a friend turned him on to The Beatles. In highschool, he started diving into artists like Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson, Mac Demarco, and Cage The Elephant. These influences have deeply inspired his songwriting. You can hear many of these influences amplified on the band’s first record, Living Strange.
