Tony was born in Pontiac, Michigan on January 23, 1976. Raised among a large music making family, he began singing and playing at the age of three. By age eight he began playing and writing with his cousin and life-long musical companion, Cole Garlak. Together they spent the better part of their school years learning classic rock cover tunes performing in garages and school cafeterias throughout Oakland county. At age 15, he moved to Orlando, Florida to enjoy four years of working as a Mouseketeer on the Disney Channel’s “All New Mickey Mouse Club.” After high school and the end of the show, he moved to Los Angeles to continue his career as a professional entertainer. He worked in commercials and television, but soon returned to music.
In 1997, Lucca took to the internet with his independent debut, So Satisfied. Having sold 2000 copies within a year, he then followed that up with the 1999 release, Strong Words, Softly Spoken. With only the internet and constant touring, Lucca went on to sell a total of 10,000 records in just a few short years. After garnering the 2001 LA Music Award for best male singer/songwriter, Tony Lucca had created quite a buzz with industry insiders and managed to take to the road opening for recording mega stars like *NSync and Marc Anthony, sharing the stage with a diverse array of artists such as Macy Gray, Johnny Lang, and the late great Chris Whitley.
After several years of indy perseverance, Lucca released his first commercially distributed album in 2004. Shotgun, the consummate road trip record, takes the listener for a ride.
In 2005, Lucca released Anatomy of a Blackbird, a live concert dvd with a close-up, behind the scenes look at life on the road during his 2004 California tour. The documentary and 12 song set give an honest glimpse into the world of an artist hard at work and enjoying every minute of it.
August of 2006 ushered in the release of Lucca’s 4th full length studio effort, Canyon Songs. This collection of songs was written and recorded entirely up in the canyons of Los Angeles. Canyon Songs is an homage to the thriving singer/songwriter spirit of the late 60’s and early 70’s that took Laurel Cayon out of it’s mystical obscurity and placed it right dead smack in the middle of mainstream poular music. From the Joni Mitchell-laced “Songbird” to the Eagles-like “Darlin’ I” Lucca reveals his earliest influences with the kind of maturity and respect that only comes with time. It’s here that Lucca expresses his appreciation for song in a way that seems to be absent in so much of today’s contemporary music.
The consummate live performer, Lucca has etched out an extensive national following. From the folk-friendly venues of the lower East side, to the hype-crazed clubs on the Sunset Strip, and with the help of a national street team of close to 1000 devoted listeners, Tony Lucca has made a rather impressive name for himself as an artist not to be missed|
