It all began when Luke Bellet joined an Austin band, The Odbodys, as a keyboard player in 2017. This is where he met their imminent drummer Nick Tozzo. Shortly after Luke's arrival, The Odbodys dissolved amicably, giving Nick and Luke the idea to establish a new band together. In September 2017 they asked Sara Louise to join as a singer, and Luke and The Lonely was born. L&TL added the bass player, Hudson Berger of upstate New York in July 2018. They are now performing in Austin venues and have released their debut EP!
