It may be nearly impossible to find Lukus Well's tiny home town of Barton, NY on a road map of the US, but that hasn't stopped fans all over the country from finding his unique talent.
"My parents used to tell me about the day I sang my first words. I was only two years old, we were on a cross country car trip, and the B52's were on the radio. 'And designer jeans with appliques on it.' That was the line. I had no idea what it meant. But at least it got me started, and I haven't stopped singing since."
Lukus Well's unapologetic view of modern-day production technique has led to a debut album that captures all the beauty and imperfection of a simple acoustic guitar and the human voice. Produced with the help of Joe Kollar & Dan Forsyth of popular bluegrass band "Driftwood", Lukus's debut combines a traditional folk sound with the lyrical sensibility of a modern-day love ballad.
