Luke Reynolds (born April 20, 1979) is an American musician, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, session musician, field recordist and producer.
As a session musician, he has worked on wide-ranging projects from Sharon Van Etten (Remind Me Tomorrow) and Neko Case (Hell-On), to Sarah Jarosz (3x Grammy Award winning album Undercurrent) and Miranda Lambert (ACM Album of the Year The Weight of These Wings).
Reynolds has released five solo albums. His most recent work, Vanishing Places Vol. 1 Bears Ears, was written and recorded based on a series of field recordings he made in Bears Ears National Monument. The idea behind the project was to travel into wild places currently at risk, record the soundscape, then turn those field recordings into fully realized compositions back in the studio. With James Gadson on drums and Lars Horntveth on horns and keyboards.
In 2019 Guster released their forthcoming album Look Alive, recorded with producers Leo Abrahams and John Congleton. This is the band's second album with Reynolds as a full member and co-writer, following their Richard Swift produced LP, Evermotion.
