Our guest this week on the Art of the Song Mid-Week Coffee Break is Jason Luckett.
Jason Luckett is a singer, songwriter, guitarist and essayist based in Los Angeles. Supporting six albums and three independently released EPs, Jason regularly tours the United States and Europe. He’s performed at South by Southwest in Austin, TX and Glastonbury Festival (UK), and has shared the stage or recorded with Tracy Chapman, the Indigo Girls, Melissa Etheridge, Jeff Buckley, jazz guitarist Kenny Burrell and members of Bauhaus and Red Hot Chili Peppers. His latest disc, The Second Half of the Bet (Hope Again), moves organically through folk, jazz, rock and world influences, while retaining the strong personality of what Jason calls “groovy acoustic soul.” His essays and poetry have been published in the anthologies The Black Body and Voices from Leimert Park.
“He uses his guitar as an accompaniment to his stellar, expressive voice as well as his intriguing love songs and mesmerizing essays…. He’s a little Sam Cooke, a little Lenny Kravitz, and a little Neil Young.” – Music Connection
“Luckett is a charismatic, romantic poet who wields lyrical dexterity in his heartbreaking yet inspirational narratives.” – HITS Magazine
