THE STORY CONTINUES...
Lucas Ohio and the band create an energetic, Americana-based rock infused with
elements of folk, country, blues, jazz, and pop.
Opening for current and legendary artists such as Jackie Green, Black Francis
(of the Pixies), Charlie Musselwhite, Poco, Primitive Radio Gods and Moonshiner
Collective, Lucas Ohio and his band continue to be featured at venues large and
small. He’s played at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall, Freight and
Salvage, The Fillmore’s Poster Room, Slim’s, Make-Out Room, The Chapel, and
Armando’s, as well as large scale festivals such as Kerrville Folk Festival
andthe Gilroy Garlic Festival.
The 2006 release of their self-titled debut album was well-received. It was
followed up by their 2008 record, “Steps Toward Home,” which cemented their
reputation and legacy as being among the best of the emerging new bands.
Lucas Ohio’s song,“All Good People,” was selected by San Francisco’s KFOG Radio
to be included in their “Local Scene 6” CD.
Repeating that success, KFOG featured Lucas Ohio’s hit single from the third
record,“Always See You (Wide Awake),” for their “Local Scene 10” CD. Jim Greer,
who was awarded a platinum record for his work on the hit CD "Torches" by Foster
the People, took the lead on producing and mixing “Slingshot Kid.” Soon after
releasing “Slingshot Kid,” Lucas Ohio received an outstanding review from
Fred Dellar in the widely renowned Mojo Music Magazine from the UK.
Recorded in the Owl House on the family farm, tucked away in the Santa Cruz
Mountains, Lucas Ohio’s fourth record is lovingly titled, “The Owl House Sessions,”
and it may be his best to date.
