Skyler Lutes

Jan. 9, The Shredder


San Diego native Skyler Lutes uses his experience growing up on the coast as fodder for his music, which leans heavily on a fusion of rock and reggae rhythms, putting out what he calls "a decidedly surf or beach vibe." A lifelong musician, Lutes formed his first band while still in middle school. Listening to his music, it seems Lutes never lost that childhood optimism; Even songs about relationships gone wrong, like "Oh No," from his most recent album, After the Rain (self-released, 2016) have a bright thread running through them, helped along by Lutes' pure tenor and spirited acoustic guitar riffs. On Tuesday, Jan. 9, Lutes will bring his ocean sound to The Shredder in Boise for an acoustic show guaranteed to create the feeling of summer, whatever the temperature outside.
