Lukas Hein


I'm a world citizen trying to improve my art and bring a little bit more beauty into the world. I feel fortunate to have discovered this incredible music and encountered some of its finest practitioners, and am happy to have the chance to keep playin the horn. Some of the players I've been lucky enough to know, play with and learn from include Marvin "Doc" Holladay (currently residing in Ecuador!), Larry Miller from Nanaimo, British Columbia, and Robert Crowell, Warren Rand, Renato Caranto and Mel Brown from Portland, Oregon. Shao Way Wu, a wonderful bass player and from Arcata, California has also helped me immensely.Studying with Tom Bergeron at Western Oregon University was a real treat! And of course, the members of Dialeto Brasileiro have had a huge impact on my musical life; if you don't know these players, look them up: Cassio Vianna, Wagner Trindade and Claudio Felix. I studied music as an undergraduate at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, gigged around Humboldt County for a few years, and earned a master's degree from Western Oregon University in 2011
