Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

TONY LUCCA

Canyon Songs

2008-09-25

Michigan-born, Tony Lucca moved to Los Angeles after high school (by way of Orlando, FL) to work in movies and television. After some success, he decided to focus on his music. That focus must have worked because he won the LA Music Award for best male singer/songwriter in 2001. This, his fourth full-length album, is an album of songs about love or life on the road (and sometimes about the choice between the two). Tony plays guitar and sings with occasional forays into other instruments such as Wurlitzer and bass. He has the help of other musicians as well on such instruments as mandolin ad pedal steel. One of the best songs on this album is the first one, "Death of Me". It manages to combine melancholy lyrics with upbeat music and it actually works. Another good one is the happy-go-lucky "Sarah Jane". Reviewed by Rebecca Ruth
