Gary Lucas

Gary Lucas is an American guitarist, songwriter, soundtrack composer for film and television, and a recording artist with more than twenty solo albums to date. He has been described as a “guitarist with a global guitar” (Larry Rohter, 9 May 2011, New York Times) “one of the best and most original guitarists in America” (David Fricke, 16 November 2006, Rolling Stone); a “legendary leftfield guitarist” (The Guardian, 24 December 2005); “the thinking man’s guitar hero” (The New Yorker, 8 January 2007), “perhaps the greatest living electric guitar player” (Daniel Levitin) and one of “the most innovative and challenging guitarists playing today” (fRoots, March 2002). Lucas’ style melds easily into rock and blues, has “avant-garde affinities,” but is “not easily typecast.”[2] He is also associated with vocalist Jeff Buckley, who performed for a year in Lucas’ band, Gods and Monsters, early in his career.

Lucas tours the world solo, as well as with several different ensembles including his longtime band NYC-based group, Gods and Monsters, a psychedelic rock band based around Lucas’s guitar playing and songwriting.
