ABOUT

My name is Luke Messimer. I have been making music for a long time in many bands from many towns. Recently, I went solo and moved to Boise from Portland with my fiance. I've already played a few shows at The Olympic and have some coming up at The High Note and The District. Been doing them all solo, which has been going great, but my music is made for a full band.

I just put out an EP (streaming everywhere) called "from here to there". I recorded it myself and played all the instruments on it. When you record yourself, you tend to go a bit crazy and put like every freaking instrument possible on each song. That being said, I'm looking for people that can possibly play multiple things. Some songs only need 1 guitar but maybe need piano. Some need two guitars and piano and organ. It's kind of all over the place.

My preffered line up would be:
2 Guitars
Bass
Drums
Keys
(and if you can sing harmonies, oh mama gimme)

If you play any of those things and dig my music (or maybe you hate my music but still feel like playing live), hit me up. I'd love to meet up for coffee and talk music to see if we click.

-Luke
