“"Sharon's not a normal girl. She doesn't fit a perfect world. Who's to say what's wrong or right? In the dark, we all need light."” - Kenneth R Martin
— 'Sharon' by LUXTHEREAL
LUXTHEREAL is a Phoenix Arizona based alternative rock outfit with eclectic interests and musical expression in an increasingly genre and sample driven musical universe. The original music of LUXTHEREAL derives from its own synthesis of classic rock, new wave, power pop, techno/synth, blues, jazz, art rock, progressive rock and beyond.
LUXTHEREAL tracks feature powerful vocals, signature melodies, and emotive guitar hooks and solos.
The focus is on the storyline as expressed in the mood, melody, lyrics, and arrangement of each song; each it's own world for the listener to inhabit. We strive to create music for its own sake, to make our own particular connection with the listeners who relate to our music.
Atmospheric, lyrical, emotive, melodic, hypnotic, and cinematic are just a few of the words to describe the music of LUXTHEREAL; but the best way to experience it is to listen.
