Santa Fe, NM (Active)
Lightning Cult is a project created by Mike Marchant, a self-taught songwriter and multi-instrumentalist whose work received consistent critical acclaim during a productive period that began in 2007 and ended after a cancer diagnosis in 2012 while based in Denver, CO. During his musical hiatus, Marchant recovered from cancer treatments and relocated to Santa Fe, NM. By 2018 he was ready to jump back into music and he enlisted a like-minded collaborator, Luke Bern Carr. Carr began as a hired producer and performer but quickly became a full project member. His role in arranging and performing Marchant’s compositions has increased significantly over the last year and a half. They are working on their first proper album together, due out later in 2021.
