Singer / Songwriter
Lunar Rogue was formed in early 2011 by singer/songwriter, Julia Dettwiler in Los Angeles. The current lineup features her lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Jim Briggs and Alex Methot playing lead and rhythm guitar, Rozz Osborn’s drumming, and Sam Orellana’s low end.
Each member’s unique background plays a role in defining the band’s sound. Influences come from all spheres of music but energetic classic rock, hard rock, and alternative styles serve as a home base for everyone involved. Lunar Rogue brings an old school songwriter’s approach to its music, giving audiences a dynamic experience. There is no hesitation in following huge rock jams with acoustic guitars and lighters.
The band has found a quick start in the scene, having already played headlining shows at the Whisky and Viper Room, as well as the House of Blues in Hollywood and Anaheim, Cat Club, Key Club, Roxy, and Hard Rock Cafe. Growing success includes being awarded “Female Band of the Year” in 2017 by Indie Artists Magazine, “International Independent Band of the Year” in 2013 – 2016 as well as the all time highest rated band in 2015 by Spiderwebradio, the #1 highest ranked rock radio station on the internet, where numerous tracks have remained in the Top 15 Artists chart every week since first spinning on the station in May 2013. The song “Another Night, Another Day” from the unreleased album was awarded “Song of the Year” in 2017 by KB Radio. In 2014 they were also nominated for “Band of the Year” by Woodbangers, and their music videos for “Lonely” and “Pretty Little Mess” have been selected to be screened at KSCR Radio’s Music Video Festivals in Hollywood, CA. “Lonely” was nominated for a Radio KSCR award in 2016. Being featured in magazines (such as Rock n Roll Industries Magazine, Indie Artists Magazine, ION Indie Music Magazine, and InterMixx) and interviewed on several TV and radio shows, has given them a platform to raise awareness for Infinite Hero Foundation. It is a cause the entire band sees as “important and worth working hard to get the word out”. Lunar Rogue’s first full length debut album was released on October 26, 2013. It can be found here. They are currently working on a new album to release in 2018.
