Starting with the exploration of piano, drums, and percussion, Loren moved forward to the lead guitar and found his love in the bass guitar.

Kurt Wagner:


Kurt Wagner was born in upstate NY way back in the day. He’s been playing music ever since he can remember but became serious about the guitar at age 12 when he discovered his dad’s cheap Silvertone and Laura Weber folk guitar instructional books. He became even more serious when he discovered that girls seemed to like guitar playing and guitarists. Many years of practice and gigging around his home state led him eventually to Nashville Tennessee, his current home. Kurt is an accomplished writer and producer and has produced music for television and radio and produced two albums in which he is the primary artist, playing guitar bass, keys, vocals and production.

Kurt has performed and recorded with many artists including David Lee Murphy, Sue Medley, Tommy Crain and Johnny Lee and many original, touring, show and club bands. Not really specializing in a certain genre, Kurt just likes music that grooves no matter what the style and he always gives his best to a recording or performance. He brings a positive spirit to any occasion and enjoys music that is uplifting and positive.

Kurt plays Taylor acoustic guitars and uses Fender amplification primarily.
