BIO

Since relocating from his native Spain in 2010 to live in London, Lucas has become a sought after guitar player and performer due to his relentless energy, feel and stage presence. He has performed alongside some of the biggest names in the circuit, including the legendary Phil Manzanera (Roxy Music, David Gilmour) as a part of his Sound of Blue band, and other heavyweights like Yaron Stavi (The Blockheads) , Paddy Milner ( Tom Jones) Javier Weyler (Stereophonics) or Joao Macedo (Razorlight) as well as jamming on stage with international figures like Chad Smith ( Red Hot Chili Peppers) Hotei and Luis Resto ( Patti Smith, Eminem). 

He has also recorded at some of the most well respected facilities in the U.K., including Metropolis Studios, Toe Rag or Gallery Studios, and 54 Sound in Detroit alongside producers like Rory Attwell ( Palma Violets, The Vaccines), Andrés Mesa ( Pink Floyd ), Mike Boddy ( The Fall, Billy Bragg), Tobin Jones ( Bo Ningen, Cold Specks), Danny Allin ( Laura Mvula, Band of Skulls) or Sean Genockey ( Roger Daltrey).

As a live performer Lucas is really in demand, having completed tours in Japan, the U.S. Argentina, Colombia, Italy and Spain . 

His journey started when he was 15 years old and watched a live video of Jimi Hendrix. Intoxicated by Jimi's energy and wild antics, Lucas decided that playing guitar was his true calling, something he had never considered due to a birth illness that only allowed him movement on the thumb and part of the index of his left hand. Realising then that one could, like Jimi, play the guitar left handed he didn't hesitate for a second to buy a stratocaster and started to emulate his heroes.

After a few years Lucas decided that the only way of building a network was to move away from Madrid and so he embarked of a journey to London after being accepted to study at The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance.

He graduated​ from the BMus degree programme, and left college having hugely enlarged his skillset, and becoming a promoter, stage manager, producer and sound engineer in his own right as well as a skilled guitarist. 

To this day he continues to combine these talents, having managed his former college's studio and set up two promotion companies, Lemongrass and Circus Extravaganza alongside associates, as well as being the conductor and arranger for the Clapham Grand Orchestra and the band leader for Late Night Special Feature, combining music, theatre and circus.

Lucas is also a music tutor, active mostly in the North West London area, and teaching both privately and for organisations like The Band Project and Your Guitar Academy. Lucas proudly endorses JAM Pedals, ACS Custom, Protection Racket and is the U.K. representative and product demonstrator for Gamechanger Audio, having been invited to NAMM in California as a brand ambassador.

As a producer, Lucas is based at The Park Studios in Wembley.
