Biography

Carl Morris – Lead Vocalist, Lyrics, Acoustic Guitar

Carl was born in Asbury Park, NJ, in 1966 and has been singing pretty much ever since. However, he didn’t really begin his musical career until a friend gave him his first acoustic guitar when he was 33 years old. While working the Virginia Beach boardwalk dressed as the Chick-Fil-A cow, he met Moose, who invited him to come try out for KNucKLe, and the rest is history. Carl is influenced by Motown, the Whispers, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, and his son Carl, who began playing at a young age. He enjoys music which tells a story, as is reflected in his own lyrics, which convey a wide spectrum of emotion to the listener.

Lucian “Moose” Ford – Drums

Moose was born in 1979 and hails from Hammonton, NJ. He spent his early musical career learning tuba, trumpet, trombone, baritone, French horn, and a couple of other instruments before realizing in 1999 that his true calling was percussion. Moose is influenced by BB King, Led Zeppelin, Billy Joel, Sublime, Bach, Beethoven, The Doors, Carter Beauford, and Neil Pert, and previously played with the Crossmen Drum and Bugle Corps and several other bands.

Taylor Lord – Lead Guitar, Back-up Vocals

Taylor was born in 1989, and has been playing guitar in his Norfolk, VA, hometown ever since he was five years old. Inspired by Lennon and Cobain, Jimi and Stevie, and Liam and Noel Gallagher, he strives to continue developing his own innovative guitar style and powerful solos. Taylor is happiest when performing and hopes to share that happiness with his audience.

Shaun Richardson – Rhythm Guitar, Lyrics

Shaun, born in Atlantic City in 1978, is self-taught. Preferring modern rock and metal, he is heavily influenced by bands such as the Mills Brothers, The Beatles, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, STP, Blind Melon, Pearl Jam, Wu Tang Clan and a host of others. His passion is to perform and he aspires to have an effect on KNucKLe’s listeners by sharing his raw and honest emotions. Shaun is also the father of three!

Luke Koloski – Bass Guitar

Luke was born in 1986 and calls Gillette, WY, home. Influenced by bands such as Tool, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Primus, he began his musical career at age thirteen, playing drums and guitar before discovering bass guitar. When not playing with KNucKLe or proudly serving the US Navy as a rescue swimmer, he enjoys camping, horseback riding, and working on cars, and is also a dedicated husband and father of one.

Scott Fenton – Manager

KNucKLe’s manager is a service-connected disabled veteran who has worked in the ship repair industry ever since his discharge from the Navy nearly 30 years ago. He grew up listening to the music of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, but his own musical career ended with clarinet lessons in high school. Carl and Moose were marine electricians and employees of Scott’s when he was first blown away by hearing KNucKLe play. Scott has managed the band ever since. All he asks is that you listen – he is sure you will be glad you did!
