The four-piece formed in Frakenmuth, Michigan, just outside of Detroit, where 20 year-old twin brothers Josh and Jake Kiszka began playing shows with their 17 year-old younger brother, Sam, and 17 year-old family friend Danny Wagner. Holding their practices in the Kiszka family garage and road-testing their songs onstage throughout Michigan, the four became a band of brothers whose songs mix classic chops with the thrill of teenage angst.
From sing-along choruses to fiery guitar solos, Greta Van Fleet rounds up a highlight reel of rock & roll heroics. These guys aren't revivalists; they're looking ahead, breathing new life into a sound that's blasted out of car dashboards and living room stereos for decades.
Originally from Hartford, WI, his musical journey began at the age of five. However, the story really begins when he packed up everything he owned in his mini van, gave up music school in Madison, WI and headed south to Nashville. He had never stepped foot in TN and was pumped to start fresh. He went to work making cronies and "faking" Belmont.
After playing Americana for five or six years, writing with and for various artists in the city, he's decided to pursue his long-time vision of a funk crew. "I felt like I was writing what I was writing because everyone was doing it," he says. "I've always just wanted to create something that people can boogie to — something that's timeless."
Now, rolling with a big band including various horns and a variety of saucy vibes, he's beginning the next part of the saga. The band is a true melting pot, no one is from the same place. LUTHI has a bit of something for everybody. It's time for people to get down. That's really it. So put on something weird, take off your shoes, and come on.
