Owner and Audio Engineer
“Since High School I’ve known that I wanted to be involved in making music for a living but I didn’t know until my sophomore year of college at Ex’pression that my part of making music would be creating and running a label.
For me, Rest Easy Records was a way to be involved in helping talented and driven musicians get the recognition they deserved. Its also a way to have a lot of fun at “work.” We’re constantly goofing around in the studio, I don’t think there’s been a time when we’re working on something that we haven’t been laughing or smiling like crazy and when that’s what you have to look forward to everyday it makes getting up in the morning pretty easy. I think that vibe translates into the music and adds to the character of the songs we produce. I’ve been involved with recording, mixing and all that for a few years now, playing music for even longer and I’m loving every minute of it.”
Talent Scout and Artist
“I grew up in San Diego with much appreciation for good music and simple living. I always found that music was more of a lifestyle than just a hobby, and being involved with Rest Easy records allows me to pursue that dream. Iv’e been playing music for over ten years and love all genres but mostly enjoy those songs/artist that lift up your soul and question you to feel.
I met Erik while recording with my reggae band at Ex’pression College and new right away that Rest Easy Records would be a awesome label to get involved with. We are currently working with local artist who embody the Rest Easy vision of family, good music, and good times. It is awesome to see such a homegrown project begin to grow and flourish and Im excited for what the future has to bring for Rest Easy Records. If you are interested in having Rest Easy listen to your music and feel it would be a good fit for the label please feel free to send me an email (Luke@resteasyrecords.com) .”
Promoter and Talent Scout
“I am from Santa Cruz, CA and have been playing music since the age of 12. Since then I have explored and enjoyed other mediums of self-expression such as pottery, photography, videography, serigraphy, graphic design, sacred geometry and spray painting (not tagging). Creativity is one of the unique gifts we possess as human beings. The idea of creating a piece of art that can outlive you and provide enjoyment to others past your own lifetime is amazing to me. It’s a way for one to give the coming generations a chance to interact with and peer into the mind of their elder, whom they otherwise might know little or nothing about. Some people listen to music as a tool to transcend sadness, fear, and even the everyday, tedious, mundane situations that life brings. Being able to provide that kind of escape for someone is a sacred gift and should be fostered accordingly.
I enjoy connecting the dots and helping compatible artists and producers meet in order to reach each others’ goals. To support is to be supported! It all comes back around…Like The Beatles sang, “And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make”! Rest Easy Records is an outlet for me to be able to provide that power of manifestation to my community of like-minded musicians and, to Erik, I am extremely grateful for having me on the crew!”
