Lucca, Nash and Duke set off on a 25-city U.S. tour on August 21, 2009 that culminated in the two-day singer-songwriter event of the year, Hotel Carolina. Lucca shares, “It was such a blast sharing the ride (and the stage) with Jay and Matt. It's one thing getting to know your tour mates' tunes, it's another thing to actually look forward to hearing them every night and getting the opportunity to record alongside each other in such a stellar environment. I was all too happy and proud to be a part of it.” Through a series of video blogs, fans had the chance to watch the “bromance” blossom and get a sneak peak into their nightly shows and road trip across the United States. An inspired Nash was filmed on the blog singing “Totally F*ckin’ Doin’ It”, a high-energy jingle turned motto, and the rest was history. Just months after the tour ended, the trio released the TFDI EP, a 4 song project recorded during a day of spent at SPACE in Evanston.

    TFDI: Tony Lucca, Jay Nash, Matt Duke

    Music

    TFDI is a three man, acoustic band, consisting of Tony Lucca, Jay Nash, and Matt Duke.   The three songwriters  joined forces in 2009 for a co-headlining tour of the United States.  Early on in the tour, it became evident to the three that, together, they possessed a powerful musical chemistry as their three individual sets began to blur into one cohesive concert.

    On a day off in Chicago, Jake Samuels, the talent buyer at SPACE in Evanston, invited the three to their backstage studios to record a few live performances.  It didn’t take long to put down takes of the four songs that would become the TFDI EP.  On November 24, 2009, just a few days after it’s release, the TFDI EP reached #1 on the iTunes singer-songwriter top albums chart and remained there for weeks.

    While enthusiasm for the trio grew far and wide, the success of the tour and the EP led Lucca, Duke, and Nash, to mobilize for a second compressive tour of the US in 2010, along with plans to write and record a full length record back at SPACE in Evanston, IL.  When I Stop Running was in the Spring of 2011 to much acclaim, but would be the last release by the group for the next few years.  Now, after a lengthy hiatus, TFDI returns to the stage with their inimitable harmonies, penchant for storytelling, and eclectic, genre-melding songwriting, and a brand new recording set for release in early 2017.
