Born in Buffalo, New York, parents from Puerto Rico. Luis A. Gonzalez also known as “Chunky” began playing percussion at the tender age of four.
By the age of seven he was playing the drums, an instrument he fell in love with and has not stopped since. At the age of ten he began traveling as a professional musician with his father’s group and got his first taste of life on the road; a path he’d look to continue on for the following years.
A decision in his teenage years to move out of Buffalo with his parents landed him in Atlanta, Georgia, where he is currently writing/producing music for different genres and playing full time with a number of bands and artists including his band Gauthier.
Comes from a bloodline of well achieved musicians.
Chunky, who is also the youngest out of five siblings, always thanks his God Almighty for blessing him with a pure soul and a conscious heart, qualities he believes to be instrumental in allowing him to develop as a world-class musician and a positive person eager to keep evolving. This mindset will continue to take him far in his quest to have the music he creates become part of the daily lives of people all over the world.
