Les Lucky - Frets & Hammers Available 07-02

Les Lucky made his way from his home in the Midwest to the New York City area, New Jersey actually where he became an unusually prolific, in-demand session cat and band leader while honing his unique original material. His solo debut Frets & Hammers is the glorious result of an exceptional talent brought to bear on extraordinary material. Lucky sings all vocal parts, plays guitar, piano, bass, percussion and programs drum tracks on 12 lyrical originals.Release date is set for July 2nd on iTunes, CD Baby or Amazon
Les Lucky was born and raised in the Midwest but has spent most of his adult life in the NYC area. Early on, he cut his teeth on the song-oriented vocal music of rock, folk/rock and R&B, but as his skills on guitar and piano developed, the blues, and later jazz, also became influences.

Within months of moving to the NYC area, Les was producing music for TV and radio as well as doing local band gigs. Within two years, he was the featured performer on over 300 dates a year while writing and recording during the day. Along with stints in Las Vegas, Montreal and New England, he spent 5-8 months a year as a solo performer in Europe for several years. He has had the honor and privilege of performing with and for many legends including Les Paul, Elton John, Harry Belafonte, Levon Helm, and Phyllis Hyman.

This is American music by a man who is ready to see where this new music will take him. His world-worn observations provide insightful, and often personal, glimpses into life's struggles as well as its celebrations. He distills the lessons learned from life's trials and tribulations into songs about modern-day relationships, love lost and life's wonders as well as stories of hard luck, questionable choices and human frailties. Les' vocal style ranges from breathy to hard-edged and beyond, while his instrumental prowess is evident in his flights of fancy on both guitar and piano. His transition from one instrument to another is as natural as it is entertaining.
