Brendan Luetkenhaus was born March 31, 1997 in Saint Louis, MO. From an early age, he enjoyed bands such as Motley Crue, Poison, Def Leppard, and more. Through his teenage years, he developed an interest for heavy metal, specifically bands like Children of Bodom. At age 16, he was given his first guitar as a birthday present and formed a band called Dare To Dream. From there, the band name was shortly changed in 2014 to Silence the Witness, the band he and other Solar artist Justin Rose still actively play for. In February, 2018, Silence the Witness unleashed “Shallow Grave” to the world, available on all platforms. The band is currently working on a new album with their Solar guitars!
“Solar is the epitome of what a guitar brand should be. From the staff, to the instruments itself, Solar hands down is the top of the food chain in terms of quality.”
