Lucas James

I keep finding more and more great music from Australia. This week’s track comes from Melbourne artist Lucas James and his new album, Long Way Back Down. It’s a bit of blues, a bit of rock, and a bit of soul that’s catchy enough to get you out of the chair and grooving through the office. Check out the title track:

As the story is told, Lucas was struggling to get his musical vision to life with other artists, so he ended up on his own, playing every instrument to create the album he envisioned.

I’m also a big fan of the album’s opening track, The Young:
