LUNDEN REIGN is the new name for the joining of two LA based original bands: The Lora G Band and The Nikki Lunden Band. Because the bands music is so varied, they call it: Big Beat Alternative Rock.
LORA G (Espinoza-Lunden) & NIKKI LUNDEN came together in just mid 2013 after their two bands performed together in an LA nightclub. They recognized and loved each others talents and songwriting abilities and decided to come together as a single band. Within only a couple of months they have wrote and recorded 4 new original songs at Capitol Records, Hollywood and at Stagg Street Studios, Van Nuys. Lora and Nikki, although independent artists, are now working under the direction of famed and platinum-selling producer-artist Luis Maldonado, mix engineer Geoff Pearlman (from Linda Perry, 4 Non Blondes) and Capitol Record's Grammy winning Evren Göknar at Mastering. They are currently recording in the legendary Studio A at Capitol Records, Hollywood and just finished recording in the legendary studio 2 (The Beatles studio) in Abbey Road,London, UK.
Lunden Reign just returned from a very successful club tour of the UK including 17 live performances in 16 days and performing at the world's biggest arts festival: The FRINGE ART FESTIVAL in Edinburgh, Scotland.
LORA G is a Composer/Guitarist/Keyboardist from Mission Viejo, CA and now living in Los Angeles, CA. She has a love of composing lyrics and combining them with the proper guitar and/or piano sounds that will best contribute to their message or story. Lora is also an activist for the rights and equal privileges of all those in the LGBT community.
