He has been featured on stations such as 99.1FM CJAM Radio, 102.7FM Radio T, 103.5FM Sunny G Radio, 105.5FM Lumpen Radio, The Warp Factor, and ACRE TV. His unconventional art rock music combines eclectic instrumentation with a maximalist, wall-of-sound production style.
Lui’s parents consider music an important educational tool. When Lui was 4, his parents signed him up for violin lessons. However, he became passionate about 90s and 2000s rock bands after borrowing his eldest sister’s MP3 player. A few weeks later, he picked up his first acoustic guitar. He started guitar lessons and began learning Beatles songs by ear. Lui's love for The Beatles and all things psychedelic rock and power-pop never diminished, but instead contributed to his style. He does everything, from song conception and production to mixing and mastering, at his home studio in Grayslake, Illinois.
