When Lucas was 20 years old, he dropped out of the Pentecostal Christian University he was attending in Texas and hitch-hiked around the country.
With only his acoustic guitar and a few pair of clothes stuffed in his backpack, Lucas made money for food by busking with his original songs on the streets of American cities. He traveled to New Orleans, Minneapolis, Seattle, and many more places taking in the beautiful scenery. He wrote songs and performed them on famous music streets like Beale St. in Memphis, Bourbon st. in New Orleans, and Broadway in Nashville, TN just to name a few.
The response he received made Lucas stop and consider making music his career for the first time in his life. He said,” I didn’t expect people outside of the south to enjoy my brand of southern music. When I was hitch-hiking and busking, I realized that good music and honesty is what people want. That’s when I saw that I could do this. I could carve out a niche for myself and my music. So, I journeyed back home and put together a plan to make music my focus”.
