With nothing but his acoustic guitar and a few pairs of clothes stuffed in his backpack, Lucas survived by busking with his original music on American city streets. Hitch-hiking from town to town, he toured America with his thumb in the wind. New Orleans, Memphis, Nashville, Seattle, each new city provided another opportunity to hone his songwriting craft and engage directly with the audience.
It didn’t take long for Lucas to learn that audiences everywhere seemed to be craving the same thing. “I didn’t expect folks outside the South to enjoy my kind of country music. When I was hitch-hiking and busking, I realized that people simply crave ‘honest, music’. That’s when I knew that I could do this. I could carve out a niche for myself. So I journeyed back home to put together a plan to make music the focus of my life.”
These days, Lucas Ebert has more than a few miles under his belt, and a lot more to travel. The songs come naturally, and so does the performance. Sometimes it’s a line, sometimes it’s a melody, but each night he takes the stage, Lucas brings a story that is uniquely his own.
