‘The Lost Surf’ biography
The Maui based band “The Lost Surf”, have become one of the most notable up-and-coming bands in rock music. Their popularity has mainly grown from their unique mixture of rock instrumentals, psychedelic instrumentals, and dark lyrics.
“The Lost Surf” was founded after an inspiring 2-hour jam session in the deserts of Joshua Tree, CA; the artist, Dave Stein, arrived back in Hawaii with a focus to create an album that he wanted to listen to. He then setup a studio on Maui where he solely wrote, produced and played all instrumentation on his debut record. Without a label that he was beholden to, Dave had the artistic freedom to create whatever he wanted to. In a drug and alcohol fueled whirlwind of inspiration; The Lost Surf’s debut album was written, recorded and finalized in two weeks time. The album’s dark and beautiful period of creation are best exemplified by its title ‘Dead From the Neck Up’.
In ‘Dead From the Neck Up’, you experience a constant state of wonderment due to the variety of genres. You can be rocking out to ‘Grind and Roll’ at one moment and then chilling out to ‘Highway Rollin’ the next. The eclectic group of songs shows off Dave Stein’s amazing versatility and creativity.
Dave Stein was born and raised in Palm Desert, CA where he played in and recorded with many bands early in his life. At age 25 he left his hometown and moved to Maui in pursuit of a lifestyle more befitting to himself and his family. On the island he learned to build his own instruments and began producing music that he had always imagined in his head. After The Lost Surf’s debut album was recorded and mastered; Dave set out to create an overarching visual representation of the entire album, again encumbered without being beholden to any label.
The Lost Surf is currently writing and recording their second album for a target release in 2019.
