Made up of the young duo of Brandon Lighty (19) and Luke Mayer (18), Trivial Nonsense is a project meant to create new and exciting Alternative Rock music with roots in everything from classical music to modern pop. From political motivations, to songs deeply personal about their time in the music industry so far, their music truly covers all spectrums. Trivial Nonsense is joined in some recordings and live performances by many fantastic musicians including; Zach Lyon (electric guitar), Armando Gonzalez (electric guitar), Chuck Hawkins (bass guitar), and Evan Zacharaski (rhythm guitar).
"The energy that [these] guys possess is out of this world. The music is full of power..." -Bowen Ashenfelter
Brandon Lighty is an avid musician, quite literally pushed to the role of frontman and vocalist. Originally beginning his music career as a classical guitarist, Brandon has since branched out and taught himself how to play the bass, electric guitar, piano, banjo, mandolin, hulusi, drums, and more. He also acts as the main songwriter and secondary producer for Trivial Nonsense's music.
Luke Mayer is one of the most impressive drummers one will ever watch. That coupled with the fact that he is self-taught only makes his skill and precision that more impressive. Not only that, but Luke has also picked up the bass, piano, and guitar. He is the main producer for the band's music, their sound engineer, and a songwriter.
“The group has repeatedly wowed audiences with their driving rhythms, great vocals, and amazing songwriting skills" -George Schricker
