This recording illustrates Lucas’ unique sound and features the versatility of his tasteful guitar stylings filled with texture and dynamics.

“This nomination means a great deal to me. I put a lot into this record, and it is an incredible feeling to be recognized by my peers. This nomination validates all the efforts that both I and my team have been putting in, especially over this past year,” said Lucas.
