A drummer at heart, LRKR focuses on rhythm to craft his sound. On top of that he layers live sounds, from trumpet, didgeridoo, piano and guitar; plus MIDI strings and flutes.
To LRKR, literally everything can be used to produce an interesting song –chains, lighters, water-filled cups, photocopiers, toothbrushes and singing bowls - all make their way into his unique music.
In 2015, LRKR self-released his first EP Wait Too Long, which is a combination of songs he wrote and produced in college from '09-'13, but never fully polished until later. The blog thrdcoast refers to the Wait Too Long EP as “… the kind of music that draws you into a hazy, lose-track-of-time kind of flow, while still keeping you on your toes.” Soundfix endorses it saying, “make sure to listen to the darkly ambient beats.” In 2016, LRKR released Getting Along, an EP that combines acoustic piano and guitar with electronic synthesizers and 808 drums.
LRKR's early success in 2015 helped launch Novice Records in 2016 with fellow producer and friend, UberVice. Together they are crafting a new sound and seeking out passionate artists with a drive to create something totally new in the world of electronic music.
LRKR, one of 8 children, was born in Kansas City, MO and grew up in St. Louis. Currently he resides in a beach town in New Hampshire where he is writing his next album.<br>
