"We are married to each other," says La Luz' drummer Marian Li Pino to Portia Sabin of The Future of What at last year's edition of Pickathon. Aside from four-part harmonies that melodically intermingle on stage, each band member has also had to figure out for themselves how to survive in a touring band.
Mostly it is: "Who is able to withstand this lifestyle?" Li Pino asks. Between living together, touring together and having a business together, the four Seattleites remain an independent musical force as they manage themselves and find success amongst the difficulties of being a burgeoning band.
