JACOB TYLER LUCAS
Jacob Tyler Lucas is an original singer-songwriter, recording artist, and music producer from Phoenix, AZ. His stylistic influences include pop, rock, and electronic music. JTL is available to perform live, either as an acoustic solo act or backed by his rock band.
JTL has just released his 3rd album entitled "Is This Real" on Anteater Records®. It is available on iTunes and Amazon as well as jacobtylerlucas.com. (The demo CD is provided in this press kit). JTL is now preparing to kick-off his "Get Real Tour 2011" on the west coast. He will unleash his act at over 20 concerts this summer.
JTL is inspired by artists such as Jason Mraz, John Mayer, and Jack Johnson. His songs have a catchy, upbeat feel that make audiences move. Jacob has shared the stage with several national acts and celebrities including: Incubus, 30 Seconds to Mars, Rise Against, Everclear, Blues Traveler, Citizen Cope, Burning Spear, RBD, War, Wu-tang Clan, Public Enemy, George Clinton and many more. Jacob's albums have been getting a great response from listeners.
JTL is ranked in the Top 25 acoustic artists on MySpace Music with over 500,000 plays. He has played great shows including Hard Rock Cafe, Marquis Theatre, Santa Fe Music Festival, 103.9 Edgefest, Arizona State U, The University of Arizona, and Phoenix Film Festival.
Chartrand, a Massachusetts native, has called Phoenix his home for over eleven years. Since his arrival in 2003, Brian has spearheaded many musical endeavors including the critically-acclaimed, international touring band The Sweet Remains, his production show “Live from Laurel Canyon: Songs and Stories of American Folk Rock” which has sold out its last 5 performances at the Musical Instrument Museum Theater, and The Voce Project, his all-star Arizona band. The Voce Project focuses on Brian’s solo material which lies somewhere between James Taylor and John Mayer; a smooth acoustic guitar style matched by an equally smooth vocal style blending elements of folk, alt country, and jazz. The band features Brian (acoustic guitar/vocals), Adam Armijo (electric guitar), Lamar Gaines (keys), Mario Mendivil (bass), Mike Florio (drums), and Todd Chuba (percussion)
