Challenge: Write a song in five minutes!

So, I challenged myself to write a song in five minutes as I was having horrible writers block! A different approach to my songwriting process and it actually really helped… and it was fun! Hope you enjoy the video and the song I wrote ๐Ÿ™‚


Single Announcement and Song Snippet

Have spent most of last week and all of the weekend working on the new single! I can now finally announce that it is called FRIENDS and it will be released on November 20th (thatโ€™s ten days before my birthday, incase you were wonderingโ€ฆ)

This is the first song Iโ€™ve released since Where I Belong which, was released last November. So, I couldnโ€™t let it be a whole year since I released a song! Modern Honesty has put out some music this year so I wonโ€™t go completely crazy for not releasing anything for so long.

Iโ€™m going to be doing this in the best way possible so I can make sure as many of you can hear it and are able to access it! This means Iโ€™ll be putting it on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer, Bandcamp and YouTube (Iโ€™ll be doing a music video for YouTube!), so hopefully you can get a listen! I havenโ€™t decided if Iโ€™ll be doing pre-orders for the new single yet but I will be sure to let you know on my Vlogs and other social media spots.

As with my other vlogs, I descend into some random topics, like letting blink know if they need a new guitarist / singer for the band, if Matt Skiba gets tied up with Alkaline Trio for a bit, that I am totally and 100 percent available. Talents include, running on 2 hours sleep, drinking 30 cups of coffee and playing through the Enema of the State album without a pause. You know, itโ€™s up there in my list of skills. Do you like my blink-182 shirt?

So! If you have my other EPs or have heard my other songs, I hope you like the new single! If you are new to my music, then: HELLO, I am Lucas, a Singer-Songwriter from the South of the UK and Iโ€™m about to release my new single FRIENDS on November 20th. See you all at the release party (most likely a whetherspoons or burger joint somewhere).

Make sure to catch me playing The Black Sheep Bar (Ryde), Isle of Wight on October 30th with Signals. , Waves & Triami – Going to be an awesome show! All details here:

Runaway (Acoustic) #throwbackthursday

Runaway is a song off my 2nd EP, The ‘Needle & Thread’ EP. I’m bunged up and coughing from a lovely cold so couldn’t sing great today. Although, I found this video I recorded around the summer of last year as I didn’t want to miss an upload day so let’s call it a #throwbackthursday

When I’m back to singing I’ll post a brand new video!

Coffee (Acoustic)

So last year I released a record, called The ‘Needle & Thread’ EP. It contained within it, a song called ‘Coffee’. Coffee is a wonderful thing. I don’t care if it’s Tesco Value or served in a train station drinks booth priced at ยฃ15, I will consider the first coffee of the day a big ol’ cup of awesome. Anyway… here is me playing that song. You can hear the recorded version here:ย
