EPL (Erinn Peet Lukes) is a singer/songwriter originally from Redondo Beach, California, Her passion for creating music grew as she played open mics and small shows as a young solo act in big music cities like Seattle and New York City. In 2013, she formed a bluegrass band called Thunder and Rain out of Denver, Colorado. The band toured the US, Ireland, and the UK in it’s seven year run. Bluegrass’s influence over EPL helped shape her flatpick-style guitar playing that compliments her lilting voice and catchy choruses. After the pandemic hit in 2020, Thunder and Rain disbanded and EPL moved to Nashville, Tennessee, to teach at the Musical Heritage Center of Middle Tennessee and to expand her potential sonically and professionally.
