Luis Resto

Pianist-keyboardist Luis Resto spent years as one of Detroit’s best-kept secrets, lending his supple fingers to albums from artists as diverse as Anita Baker, Patti Smith and Iggy Pop to Jay Z, B.o.B., 50 Cent, and of course, Eminem.

One of the Motor City’s most creative and accomplished musicians and songwriters, Resto composed music for the hit film 8 Mile and was co-writer of “Lose Yourself,” which spent twelve weeks atop Billboard’s Top 100 and garnered Resto both a Grammy® and an Oscar®. He continues to work with Eminem as a songwriter and keyboardist on both recording projects and in live concert. Resto’s most recent recognizable work has been the musical arrangement and choir production for the use of “Lose Yourself” in the popular 2011 Chrysler 200 commercial featuring Eminem.

Resto has simultaneously embarked on a solo career, releasing his debut Combo De Momento album and performing his own compositions.
