Dune Local's original trio, Tristeen Caravella and John Loetscher of Hampton Bays, and Austin Quinn of East Quogue are long time friends who grew up together on Long Island. In the last few years, they began writing music together. Chris Hamilton, who is also from their home town area, linked up with DL and is currently playing bass for the band.
Dune Local has been described as a harmonic blend of the best of rock, reggae, blues, & hip hop funneled into a powerful and unique sonic experience. Their eclectic style brings a little something for everyone to the table. Tristeen – or "T.Kissy" : vocals, Austin : guitar, "Johnny Lo" : percussion, and Chris : bass.
