Jane of Arc, comprised of Chelsea Carter and Elida Quesada, started making sweet music together in late 2007. It began in a cozy basement apartment in Detroit with 2 acoustic guitars and a modest drum kit. They have since uploaded themselves into Southeast Michigan and beyond, hoping to one day become a major minority to change Michigan music. This unique female indie-pop duo creates music that will get you stomping your feet in one moment and have you wandering down memory lane the next. Their first full-length album entitled Freedom in Falling layers beautiful arrangements of carefully blanketed instrumentation and vocals. The concept for the LP began as a small noise, and with some time and tender care, developed into a music catalog of sensory explosions. Each song takes indie-acoustic-pop enthusiasts on a journey through the uncertainty, fear and liberation of experiencing love and enduring loss.
It is nearly impossible to find a current singer/songwriter between the ages of 20 and 40 who doesn’t have a seemingly identical list of influences as their peers. Whether its the soul-bearing lyrics of Stevie Wonder, or the gritty folk music of Bob Dylan, the unbridled creativity of Dave Matthews, or the overwhelming truth of Ray LaMontange, somehow these artists all seem to inform the landscape of the modern singer/songwriter. What tends to separate an artist from that pack is experience, confidence and self-exploration. 8 full-length albums into his career, Tony Lucca has become a standard-bearer to some, a torch-bearer to others, and all the while Lucca’s confidence is matched only by his humble appreciation for his path in the wild world of entertainment.
There have been quite a few milestones along the way for Lucca, and it all began for him as a Mousketeer on the Mickey Mouse Club. Lucca’s rise to fame also included a brief stint on an Aaron Spelling prime time drama coupled with a rather public relationship with actress Keri Russell. Fast forward a few years and find Lucca working with fellow former Mouse Club co-star Justin Timberlake, starring in a commercial directed by Timberlake for his own 901 Tequila. Lucca then played himself in an episode of NBC’s hit show “Parenthood”. In 2012, Lucca returned to Hollywood, this time as a finalist on Team Adam (Levine) of the hit show The Voice on NBC. All the while honing a craft that somehow managed to remain the primary focus of his heart, soul and passion –songwriting.
