Luke Atlas is a Seattle, Washington native and Coleman Trapp is from Denver, Colorado. Trapp played the drums and piano growing up and sang for the first time at age 23, and Atlas played the guitar. The two met in Los Angeles shortly after Atlas moved there, and they began writing songs together. After two years of little success between the two, Trapp decided to return to his hometown of Denver. He then began recording some notes on a borrowed acoustic guitar, mailing the recordings to Atlas to listen to. Atlas then recorded a demo around one and mailed it back to Trapp, encouraging him to return to Los Angeles. One of the first songs written and released by Coast Modern is “Hollow Life”, released in 2015.
