Moscow Noir was created by frontman/guitarist Lesther Gutierrez. After he taught himself about production and recording, he began experimenting with electronic sounds. Lesther is the writer, composer, producer, singer and lead guitarist of Moscow Noir and he created all of the material for the EP before he put the band together. The EP was recorded in Lester’s home studio. Lesther is also the visual creator behind Moscow Noir artwork, branding design and animation. He used to work as a broadcast designer for Canada’s CTV where he designed show intro/animations and special effects for television shows and brands. Rounding out the lineup is his brother Sylvain Gutierrez (bass guitar/backing vocals) and friend of eleven years Steve Rice (drums). Richard Gillespie (keyboards) and Mike Formusa (guitars) are recent additions that will round out the live touring lineup.
