Singer, Songwriters Nicole Sutton & Mark McGee (lead guitarist w rock n roll hall of fame's Gregg Allman from 1995-2004, 2007) bring their musical vision and crossover sound to new heights! Their songwriting chemistry, lush vocal harmonies and McGee's lead guitars are the heart of Luvplanets' original sound.
The band is currently putting the final touches on their highly anticipated, 6th/dbl studio album 'Something Good'. Set to be released in the Fall of 2019, the band continues to expand on their unique brand of authentic, feel good RocknRoll!
From powerful anthems to emotional ballads to extended psychedelic jams, Luvplanet's memorable songs are timeless with universal appeal. Their songs showcase meaningful lyrics and supercharged melodies. Nicole Sutton's seductive vocals and strummy acoustics, McGee's masterful slide, shred and thematic guitar soundscapes, weaving grooves from bassist Tommy Sisco and drummer Michael Amos and beautiful textures from new member and keyboardist Steven Anderson, deliver a full rich sound! Blending rock, pop, jam, country, blues and psychedelic styles they create the template for the new era of world class music.
Roger Fisher (Heart) says...
Nicole Sutton, where have you been? You deserve a high chart position, top radio rotation and chauffeur-driven rides to receive your Grammys! Non-pretentious lyrics on a bed of guitar greatness express songs that aren't cliché-cluttered. I think all the greatest guitarists in the world would agree that Mark McGee stands among them as impressive and inspiring!
