Lunaris is a singer, guitarist, and producer based in Greenville, South Carolina. A graduate from USC Upstate University, Lunaris brings a combination of theatrics and fusion into a futurist fairy tale world where dreams as well as nightmares come to life. Lunaris has been releasing his music onto digital streaming platforms for years, but as of March 2021, he released his long-awaited independently produced debut EP "The Fall".
L: Back when I was in middle school, my father bought me my first guitar for Christmas. Although some of my friends at the time said I’d “never be good enough” to actually play an instrument well, I started teaching myself well-known riffs from classic songs, such as “Eye Of The Tiger” by Survivor. After a while, my drive to play music started to change from just wanting to prove my friends wrong, to an actual passion. I began to absolutely love playing music, and a desire to inspire others through it began to develop.
L: My latest EP “The Fall” follows after a very Alice In Wonderland type of story, which inspired the cover art. Throughout Alice In Wonderland, she continuously faces obstacles that appear in her way, but the story eventually takes a twist where she starts taking control of her situation and you see a more rebellious side of Alice - I feel that the songs in my EP speak of the same kind of journey, except it is my own personal story.
L: It would be a tie between “Who Are You” and “Recovery”. The first is more industrialized, and the other is more theatrical. The climax in the bridge section of “Who Are You”.. I’m so proud of that! “Recovery” though, is the climax of the entire album. Everything I’ve learned over these many years about musicianship, theory, and production went into that song.
L: My music has preserved my personal testimony. By that I mean that through the music that I have made over the years, I can see the steps that I have taken over time. The many different phases of life I have been through. While creating my music, I began to learn selflessness - to care more about others and how I can help them in the future.
L: Generally, if I am writing an electronic-based song, I like to start with composing the instrumentals first. Oppositely, if I am writing an acoustic song, I’ll start with the lyrics first. Either way though, I like to let my songs sit for a while sometimes, as they tend to go through different phases as I produce them.
