With barely much more than his Martin D-28 in tow, Lucas re-located to Berlin from his native Port Lincoln in 2015 setting out to woo European music fans with his gentle and thoughtful brand of modern folk. The troubadour took a detour to Adelaide in May to launch Boulders, the delicate first single, from the upcoming EP before landing in Germany.
Laufen reports that his background in classical music influences his songs, yet, despite this, he manages to avoid too much flourish preferring to keep his music simple. His somber folk renditions are based on the ebb and flow of storytelling and invite listeners to engage with his lyrics.
The upcoming EP Goodbye speaks of his transition from a country town on the heaving shores of the Southern Ocean in rural South Australia to the Underground stations in Berlin and beyond.
