Alt-Country, Folk, and Dream Pop fusing together to create ethereal emotional tunes. Music at: http://loftystills.bandcamp.com
Luke Culbertson is a writer, artist and multi-instrumentalist.
Aching as blessing. Dreaming as living. Change as tenderness. Nature as solace.
These are the themes of Lofty Stills.
The musical project of Seattle-dwelling singer/songwriter Luke Culbertson and friends, Lofty Stills envelopes the listener in lush instrumentation and yearning tenor vocals, with comparisons to contemporaries like Bootstraps, Beach House, Sufjan Stevens, and Ryan Adams.
In October 2015, the single Every Fight was released, with cover art accompaniment by local experimental photographer May Xiong. This dreamy folk endeavor explores the complex relationship we have with ourselves and with each other.
In early 2016, Lofty Stills released the Lofty Stills EP, a 4-track that dives deep into beauty, pain, and loss. The EP provides an effortless fusion of swirling folk stylings, rich country undertones, and dream pop synths, with Culbertson's fragile, rousing voice gluing it all together.
Culbertson is currently hard at work on a debut full length album.
Happy new year everyone. Here's a cassette demo of a new song from the upcoming record; a free download for your dreary Sunday.
More soon, this now :)

With all that has been going on with the election, I've been a little quiet and hesitant to post any updates, but the Kickstarter campaign stealthily ended a couple days ago. We made it to our goal and got successfully funded! I'm heading to Nashville on December 2nd to make my debut record with Carson Cody Timothy Jude Andrews Jamison Sean Dewlen and Joshua D Niles and I could not be more grateful for your support in helping make this happen. Now more than ever, I'm excited to bring an album full to the brim of tenderness, aching, longing, and hope and I pray that it can be a blessing and a comfort to all of you when it gets released. If you didn't get to pledge but still want to pitch in, message me and we can figure something out :)
After this post, I'll be fairly quiet for a bit, and taking time off of shows to prepare for the trip, so this is a bit of a "goodbye for now, see you soon." THANK YOU so much.
All my love,
