Lucas Jack began his songwriting and performance career crafting songs for any and all family occasions as a small boy, a passion he carried as a teenager to the bars, hotel lobbies, and social events of his hometown of Kalamazoo, Michigan – anywhere with an unguarded piano. This creative impulse was fostered throughout his twenties via collaboration with a series of bands while working as an attorney in Chicago. At last heeding music as a full-time calling, he left the corporate grind and released his first album, The Chicago EP, in 2012, followed by the full-length record Sun City in March 2013. Channeling and reinventing the tradition of great piano rock – Billy Joel, Elton John, Leon Russell, Bruce Hornsby, and Marc Cohn - Lucas Jack is a singer-songwriter-pianist telling finely-hewn stories of the modern American experience with his powerful tenor voice and inspired musicianship. He currently lives, writes, and performs in and around Texas.
