An Evening with Jason Luckett @ Live Arts Los Angeles
We'll have two sets this evening in a cabaret setting. Jason is excited to be joined by Ossie Mair on percussion and the dancing of Haize Hawkins.
Jason Luckett is a singer, songwriter, guitarist and essayist based in Los Angeles. He's released six full-length independent albums on his Lucky Masala Head label, toured the United States and Europe at such venues as Austin's South by Southwest and the Glastonbury Festival in the UK, and shared the stage with such artists as Tracy Chapman, the Indigo Girls, Melissa Etheridge, jazz guitarist Kenny Burrell and members of Bauhaus and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. His essays have been published in the anthologiesThe Black BodyandVoices from Leimert Park. His latest release,The Second Half of the Bet (Hope Again), moves organically through folk, jazz, rock and world rhythm influences, retaining the strong personality of what Jason irreverently calls "groovy acoustic soul."
"He uses his guitar as an accompaniment to his stellar, expressive voice as well as his intriguing love songs and mesmerizing essays . . . . He's a little Sam Cooke, a little Lenny Kravitz, and a little Neil Young." (Music Connection)
"Luckett is a charismatic, romantic poet who wields lyrical dexterity in his heartbreaking yet inspirational narratives." (HITS Magazine)
