Hawai'i music legend John Cruz saw Michael Tanenbaum and Nick Gertsson performing at a Kailua coffee shop and described their sound as ‘the perfect wave’.
The name stuck and when the duo invited Lucie Lynch onstage to improvise some lyrical flow to their textured guitar soundscapes, a new sound was born.
Featuring slack-key guitarist Michael Tanenbaum and eclectic electric guitar player Nick Gertsson, the Honolulu-based band combines the talents of three unique musicians to create a truly original sound.
Lucie has opened for international cult band 'Marillion' and is a regular at many of Oahu's favorite venues. Nick has played with some of the world's greatest metal guitarists, and Michael's slack-key compositions have been featured in several documentary films.
With the recent additions of Domingo Laraino (Masters of Oz) on drums and Blake McMillen (Jai the Band, Roots Odyssey) on bass, Lucie & The Perfect Wave fuses delicious slack-key soundscapes, searing electric guitar riffs and intricately fretless basslines with Lucie’s powerful vocals to transport audiences to cosmic dimensions.
