About Al Lukas: At 15, Al Lukas picked up his father’s guitar and never looked back. Some people make music for a living, some people make music for life. Al first jumped onto the music scene in Northern Ontario while playing flat-top guitar for Nothing in the Crib, a Bluegrass/Newgrass band. Having been a member of the Canada South Blues Society, Mr. Lukas also has a strong following in Southern Ontario. Al is currently touring his second album, Fall & Flight… the album features Al’s original songs which reflect his beliefs:
“The world is living just as we are, and just as we are…it is ever changing….fall or flight, the choice is ours.” In the song Flying, he sings about the need for change; “I’m flying, flying across the land and I’m trying to see the bigger picture, the greater plan”. This song definitely tells a story, asking us not to change who we are, but to become who we are. www.lukasproductions.com
