    Tony Lucca

    Pop

    He was cast by Justin Timberlake to play “the cool guy” in Timberlake’s directorial debut.

    He finished third on The Voice in 2012, won a record deal in the process, and received more press coverage than any contestant on the show that season… or any season, for that matter.

    He made a record with Adam Levine, then toured with Maroon 5 and Kelly Clarkson.

    He was cast on the hit show “Parenthood” playing himself as a rock singer, and performed an original song.

    He even starred in an Aaron Spelling prime-time drama and dated Keri Russell for years, winding up in countless gossip mags.

    His name is Tony Lucca.

    So why isn’t he a household name? Maybe he simply hadn’t made the right record before.

    This time, Lucca believes he has. It’s his 8th full-length studio album, his first self-titled release, and first entirely self-produced effort.

    “We went in with the intention of making a record that was as live-sounding as possible. I wanted to close my eyes and be able to visualize the players in the room or up on the stage, actually playing the songs together. One guitar over here, the other guy over there, bass, drums, some keys? I mean, that’s the rock-n-roll I fell in love with when I was a kid.” Lucca pulls inspiration from the heroes he heard on the radio growing up, from Tom Petty, Billy Squier to AC/DC’s Angus Young, tapping into a sense of timelessness he places somewhere between The Black Crowes and the Black Keys.

    Each of the 12 songs on “Tony Lucca” are deeply personal. The record kicks off with “Old Girl”, Lucca’s rebuff to the music business treadmill. On the upbeat “Imagination”, Lucca recalls the evening where he met his wife… to the best of his ability. Lucca’s fans will enjoy the diverse sonic quality of four of his trademark ballads – the epic and sweeping piano-driven “North Star”, the optimistic “Smoke ‘Em”, the push and pull of love lost and found in “Right On Time”, and the sweet album closer that bares his daughter’s name, “Sparrow”.

    Funded by a very successful Kickstarter campaign (one that hit its $25K funding goal just inside of 30 hours), Lucca feels strongly that his fans stepped up so that he could make the best record he possibly could – one he could finally feel comfortable releasing with his own name as the title. To that point, Lucca says “this record is pure. And honest. And hopefully completely refreshing to its listeners.”

    Tony Lucca was born on the outskirts of Detroit on the heels of Motown’s heyday, raised within the loving confines of an enormous family of musicians; his mom was the 10th of 12 kids who all sang and played. At the ripe old age of 12, Tony had his first paying gig as a musician at a Jr. High School dance and by the age of 15, he parlayed his childhood rock-n-roll fantasy into a legitimate career, getting cast among an extraordinary group of newcomers on The All New Mickey Mouse Club, along with Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling and Britney Spears.

    Shortly after graduating high school, Lucca wound up in LA and embarked upon an independent recording career that would span over 20 years. Along the way he’s toured with artists as colossal as Maroon 5, Kelly Clarkson, *NSYNC and Marc Anthony, as well as several of his fellow Hotel Cafe kin including Josh Kelley, Sara Bareilles, Joey Ryan (Milk Carton Kids), Gabe Dixon and Andrew Belle. Lucca won the LA Music Award for best male singer/songwriter in 2001 and appeared numerous times on Last Call with Carson Daly, as well as The Wayne Brady Show and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Also in 2013, Lucca was the sole entertainment for FOX’s NFL Thanksgiving Day telecast for the Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers game.

    Emily Earle

    Singer-Songwriter

    Emily Earle’s arrival in Nashville was inevitable. From the first time she picked up a guitar and stepped on stage, it was clear that she was a country artist.

    Emily grew up in small-town Texas, but moved with her family to Colorado in her first year of high school. Her earliest performances were in local musical theatre productions. The Director of the community theater told Earle that there was an honesty in her singing that was special, and encouraged her to peruse her own music. When given a chance to play guitar and sing at a local music venue, she knew what she had to do. The next couple of years she played whenever she could get on stage, singing the songs of artists such as Emmylou Harris, Johnny Cash, Dixie Chicks, Sheryl Crow—and she started to write.

    After graduation from high school, Emily moved to Boston where she graduated from Berklee College of Music—then on to New York City where she earned her keep playing her music in the subway stations. This gave her the flexibility to put a band together and play bars and open mics where she caught the attention of an NBC producer and was invited to compete in Season 3 of The Voice. Her performance of “Ring of Fire” earned her a slot on Ceelo Green’s team. After one of her performances on the show, Blake Shelton commented, “Emily Earle has a truly authentic country voice.”

    Emily relocated to Nashville in 2011. As she puts it, “If you want to be a songwriter, this is the place you need to be”. She has been writing and performing around town, and has toured extensively in the US and Canada. She has played a number of notable venues, including McGonigel’s Mucky Duck in Houston, the Soiled Dove in Denver, and the City Winery in Nashville where she opened for her uncle, Steve Earle.

    In 2014, Emily was invited to play at the CMA music festival, and was featured in Songwriter Magazine. She is currently in Nashville writing and touring.
