Luce began in 2002 when a young house painter named Tom Luce decided he would pursue a life long dream of writing and recording his very first CD. What he never imagined what that this CD, featuring the song Good Day, would begin a career that would take his band and him on thirty-three national tours, earn a Bammy for best debut album, end up in two major motion pictures and several television shows, and receive airplay on almost every Triple A radio station and on countless Hot AC stations across the country. Tom Luce decided it was time to put down his paintbrush.
Since that beginning Luce has been touring constantly and has put out three full-length CD’s as well as an acoustic EP that rediscovered the fan favorite, “Good Day” as well as introduced new LUCE songs. “We wanted to push ourselves by recording live” says singer Tom Luce. “Recording a song acoustically opens the door to new ideas and crazy experiments”. Luce has also reworked their live show and is now back in the studio working on new material for the fourth album. “This business forces you to keep reinventing yourself,” says Tom, “there is always a feeling like something creatively great is just around the corner”. And as far as painting houses goes, “I miss that sometimes” he says. “But I guess I’ve really just switched from paint brushes to guitars”.
Jeff Campbell’s onstage experiences have taken him to coast to coast countless times and found him sharing stages with John Mayer, members of Counting Crows, The Grateful Dead, and opening for Train. After being crowned winner of Guitar Center's National Singer Songwriter Competition out of over 13,000 entrants, his 2013 EP Release, “In Spite of Everything”, produced by 6x Grammy Winner John Shanks, premiered at #1 on the iTunes rock EPs and singles charts, following a performance on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show.
Watch him strap an acoustic guitar on his back, board a public bus with 75 strangers, and traipse his way across the country. Here’s a singer-songwriter who loves nothing more than the sound of his voice reverberating off a music venue’s back walls. Yes, this is Jeff Campbell’s life, and as he’ll readily tell you, it isn’t so much a choice as it’s his calling. “This is just who I am” says the vocalist, impassioned songwriter and lifelong musician who with The Kitchen Sink, has at long last concocted the album that represents him at his core and is willing to do whatever it takes to feel the rush of human connection.
