ABOUT DAVID LUNING:
John Prine forced David Luning to drop out of college. Not at gunpoint or anything— the two had never even met—but the effect of hearing the songwriting legend's music for the first time had an equally compelling effect on Luning, who was studying film scoring at the Berklee College of Music in Boston at the time. Now an accomplished artist in his own right, Luning is preparing to release his most dynamic and gripping collection to date, 'Restless,' and he can trace it all back to one fateful night that changed everything.

«A couple of friends invited me over to share some songs at their apartment, and that was the first time I'd ever really listened to Americana music or folk or country or whatever you want to call it,» remembers Luning. «They showed me John Prine, and it just resonated with me so much. I was like, 'Oh my god, this is what I have to do with my life.' I just figured it out in that moment.»

Luning dropped out of school almost immediately, moved back to his native California, and devoted himself to songwriting and performing. He worked his way up through open mics to large festival performances, piecing together a band to flesh out his songs along the way and hitting the road to tour with a fierce determination. His self- released debut album, 'Just Drop On By,' garnered acclaim from both critics and fellow musicians alike, with country megastar Keith Urban hailing Luning's «staunch originality.» Songs from the album landed numerous film and TV placements, most recently on NBC's 'Grimm,' and Luning's reputation for exhilarating live performances earned him dates with luminaries like Jackie Greene, Dave and Phil Alvin, and Elvin Bishop, along with a slew of festival performances up and down the West Coast.

If 'Just Drop On by' announced the arrival of a promising new talent, 'Restless' delivers on that potential and then some. Recorded under the guidance of engineer/producer Karl Derfler (Tom Waits, Dave Matthews) and with Luning's longtime live bandmates— Ben Dubin (bass & harmonica), Linden Reed (drums), and Dave Sampson (guitar & mandolin)—the album marks a major step forward, both sonically and emotionally.

ABOUT LOVEANGELISTS:
Loveangelists is the Oakland, California based indie folk rock duo of Nathan Dennen (California) & Lisa Young (Delaware).

Nathan self-produced two solo albums. In addition to songwriting, he is also a talented visual artist. Lisa is a polyglot linguist, songwriter, and freestyle dancer known for her energy, enthusiasm and out-of-the-box thinking. Together, the up-and-coming pair combines eloquent harmonies and catchy rhymes for anyone to enjoy.

«The message is as important as the music. At a time when the world feels deeply divided, Loveangelists is for people who envision more for their lives. Anyone can be a loveangelist, live the message of empowerment through love (starting with yourself!), and be an example for others to do the same. Our music is a place for consistently positive messages that boldly leaves no difficult topic left behind. Add Loveangelists to your empowerment playlist.» -Lisa
