Johnny Lucas writes and performs fresh, anthemic songs which keep you singing through the dark times as well as the bright. With influences ranging from 60s McCartney to his own stamp on Modern Brit Pop, Johnny's easy-to-relate-to, feel-good music will always leave you in a sunnier mood. Using multiple loop pedals and several different guitars, he entertains audiences completely solo while sounding like a full band.
The Pedal to the Floor.
Using multiple loop pedals and several different guitars, he entertains audiences completely solo while sounding like a full band. So much so that even Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin) said -
"I loved what Johnny did with the loop pedal, there was so much going on it was like 5D experience."
The Best Days.
Recognition was also enjoyed on radio with his single, The Best Days making airplay on both BBC Radio 1 and 2 in the same week. Consequently, this had a big impact on his live shows and led to him playing over 250 shows in the last year alongside acts such as Clean Bandit, Rizzle Kicks, The Feeling, The Kaiser Chiefs, Jools Holland and many more. Johnny has now become a regular fixture at festivals such as Glastonbury, Isle Of Wight, and Jamie Olivers Big Feastival playing to audiences of thousands each year. During his UK touring he was also selected by CAFFÈ NERO as their Artist of the Month, where they play listed 2 of his songs (Over My Head and Ticking) around 600 stores worldwide.
Despite all the time he has spent on the road throughout the year, he has been continually writing and recording new material and the New Ep titled "If You Want To" produced by Fred Cox (James Morrison, Wretch 32) is packed full of catchy choruses and fully sums up his unique take on sophisticated pop. Johnny has also spent many months in the studio writing and demoing over 20 new songs which range from up beat, British sounding melody's right through to more raw and acoustic material. Johnny is recording tracks in March with Lincoln Parish of Cage The Elephant .
