The best kept secret in music


"Wildwood Agency- Chicago, IL"

"lushwell's commitment to melodic rock is evident. Their commitment to playing great live shows is evident as well. Definitely a band to keep and eye-and ear-on". - Tim White

"Music Awareness Pittsburgh"

“Lauren DeMichiei’s potent
vocals and Joe Serkoch’s crafty guitar stylings-ranging from grungy to bouncy, yet always purposeful – combine to shape lushwell’s hook-infused, radio-length, pop-rock tunes…In addition to unabashed chutzpa and verve, the band has proven to be extremely resourceful and committed to self-promotion.” - Dean Brandt

Feeling a bit camera shy



A band daring to break away from the pollution of modern-rock radio, Lushwell has a sound unlike any rock band. Combining the talents of four musicians unique in their own rite but embedded in the belief that music is about “feel” rather than complexity or just marketability. This belief allows emotion to reign free throughout songs, in return, giving each one it’s own identity; this is most apparent through the insightful and sensual vocal stylings of front-woman, Lauren DeMichiei. Paired with the warm melodic rock riffs of guitarist, Joe Serkoch, vocal and guitar compliment one another in a dynamic likeness. Pete Natishan, on bass, provides the Lushwell sound with a deep underbelly of low-end grooves. While on drums, the percussive mastery of Dennis Snyder brings rhythm to chaos. Mere words do them no justice; it’s the music that speaks for them.


Lushwell has performed extensively through out the Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, and New York areas; where they have graced the stage of such well-known venues as The Legendary Peabody’s Down Under in Cleveland and Nick’s Fat City in Pittsburgh. Lushwell has opened for national artist, Danny Wood of NKOTB fame. They have shared the stage with indie powerhouses Freekbass, Cider, New Invisible Joy, Tangerine, Mercury, and Connor O’Brien. Lushwell can be heard in rotation on 105.9 WXDX (Pittsburgh), 99.3 WLLW (Geneva, NY), 100.1 WCLG (Morgantown, WV), and 91.1 WRUW (Cleveland).


Lushwell has been a main staple in the non-profit organization, Music Awareness Pittsburgh. They organized and set in motion the “Save Rock n’ Roll” event held at the famed Rosebud Café to raise money and awareness for Pittsburgh’s fertile music community. The event sponsors included PULP Magazine, 91.3 WYEP FM, Waddell’s Drum Center, and Brighton Music Center.
Lushwell has also participated in The Flight 93 Benefit Concert, Find a Cure for Nicholas Balog Benefit Concert, and the Lupus Awareness Benefit Concert all held at Pittsburgh Brewing Company’s, Ober Brau Haus.
