“Somewhere between Otis Redding’s soul shout and Cat Power’s swampy poeticism… one of the greatest, most thoughtful lyricists the state has to offer. Certainly one of the most respected songsmiths around. Adam Faucett manages to get under your ribs effortlessly.” Faucett was originally a member of Russellville, Arkansas-based band Taught the Rabbits, and has been performing solo since 2006. After Taught the Rabbits broke up, Faucett relocated to Chicago where he focused on folk music, writing his first album ‘The Great Basking Shark, which was then recorded in Little Rock. He toured behind that effort, raising enough money to record a second album in 2008, ‘Show Me Magic, Show Me Out,’ followed by ‘More Like a Temple’ in 2011. During this time he toured the United States and Europe with acts such as Lucero, Calexico, The Legendary Shack Shakers, Vetiver, Chuck Ragan of Hot Water Music and Damien Jurado. He released ‘Blind Water Finds Blind Water’ in 2014, touring with his band, The Tall Grass.
Raised in the backwoods of Monroe County, Indiana, Austin Lucas was born into a folk and bluegrass lineage. Learning to harmonize before learning to read, Lucas honed his vocal control early as a member of the nationally-acclaimed Indiana University Children’s Choir. In a narrative as well-worn as it is true, Lucas rebelled against his upbringing, leaving his Americana roots for the catharsis of punk rock. After the better part of a decade spent criss-crossing the globe with a series of bands in broken-down vans, living in the Czech Republic from 2003 and returning back to the USA in 2008. Lucas hit a musical glass-ceiling, eventually finding respite for his ringing ears in the delicacy of traditional song craft. Taking his music in the direction the Americana Roots and traditional country genre. Singing with the conviction of a preacher bereft of his faith, Lucas tackles recurrent themes of the soul, sin as personal purgatory, and the possibility of finding redemption in this life. The fallacies of man take center stage as the righteous false prophet is denounced as a “hollow vessel with unsteady hands.” Turning the harsh light of hindsight on himself, Lucas addresses the hard lessons learned in the passing of youth, ruminating on the failures and missed opportunities, pledging, “If there’s a light shining/ Point the way there/ A straight way of walking/ I’ll be like an arrow.”Having raised his profile on the road touring with Willie Nelson and Jamey Johnson on the Country Throwdown tour, SXSW and MNFW. He has also extensively toured with Dawes, Langhorne Slim, William Elliot Whitmore, Joe Pug, Scott H. Biram, Cory Branan, John Moreland and Drag The River. Lucas has also bolstered his loyal grassroots following with appearances at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, Canada’s Sled Island Festival, Florida’s Harvest of Hope.
