Acclaimed rock/alt-country quintet Lucero is gearing up to release When You Found Me on January 29. Lucero reunites with GRAMMY Award-winner Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price, Drive-by Truckers) who produced their 2018 acclaimed album Among The Ghosts. When You Found Me was recorded in the band’s home town of Memphis, TN at the historic Sam Phillips Recording Studio. Listen to intense first track Outrun The Moon.
When You Found Me finds Lucero founder Ben Nichols lyrically ruminating on family, while the band continues to evolve musically after 20 plus years. When You Found Me finds the group tapping into a more atmospheric widescreen vision, while expanding on their sound with heavier rock sonics. The use of keyboard player Rick Steff’s extensive collection of vintage synthesizers conjures an aural world of classic tracks with a firm foot in the present. Nichols, Steff and bandmates Brian Venable (guitar), Roy Berry (drums) and John C. Stubblefield (bass) uphold the urgency of past Lucero releases, while moving forward in both sound, writing and texture.
