Today we’d like to introduce you to Lune Rose.
So, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I grew up making music in and around the LA area and moonlighting on keyboards in my brother’s band, Night Talks. This last year I started going to Occidental College. Right around that same time, a producer friend of mine, Max Allyn, had just relocated to Highland Park. We started writing a bunch of music together and through the process, a sound started to emerge. At that point, he had just formed a recording label, AllsWell Records, with some friends of his (Jason Wade of Lifehouse & Steve Stout of Blondfire/Lost Beach) and he shared it with them. They really believed in it and decided they wanted to help me release it. At this point we’ve released one track – “Trophy” – which is kind of a weird, reversed remix of a song we wrote but weren’t sure what to do with. Next, we’re going to release “Can’t Be Sure”. For this one, I was able to collaborate with my roommate, DJ Dveris, at Occidental and shoot a music video entirely on Super 8 film.
Has it been a smooth road?
Some of the obstacles I’ve had to deal with over the years come from being a young woman pursuing music. It has been difficult getting people to take my opinions seriously and sometimes it’s been difficult for me to feel comfortable expressing my opinions as a result of this. Through the LA music community, I have found a great tight-knit group of aspiring female musicians that have helped me in growing my confidence and have inspired me to find strength in what I love creating.
We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I’ve always had a deep love for sad and moody songwriters, like Fiona Apple and Elliott Smith. They’ve inspired me to want to write songs that others can connect to and feel vulnerable with. I’ve seen my songwriting process as a cathartic experience and an exploration of my mind. I’ve come to find that my interest in the human mind has always been rooted in my songwriting and I’m now studying psychology at Occidental. I can’t say that I have a specific moment I am most proud of. Instead, I’m most proud of my growth as a songwriter and as a person. I’m proud of where I stand today.
How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
The music business is definitely a hard place to gain any traction but at the same time, I feel like there’s more opportunity than ever. I’ll continue to create music that connects with people and hopefully, I’ll be able to share it with wider audiences. Currently, my goals are to eventually work up to releasing an EP in the future. I also hope to be able to get on the road and play my music around the states.
