Bio of the artist:
Indie songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist, Rotterdam based Lucas Thijs debuted in 2018 with his self-produced indie “Backspace”. In 2020, Lucas released his single “Never Had It Anyway”, a collaboration with Igor Wouters (Amsterdam Recording Company) that resulted in a sound that leaned more towards alternative-rock.
After spending his early twenties working as a session musician in multiple projects, Thijs began shifting his focus away from projects that wouldn’t fulfil creatively. While being a guitar player in Rotterdam based post-punkband Paterson, he simultaneously kept working on his solo music. Inspired by the earlier work of John Frusciante and Ellioth Smith he recorded his latest release Escapology using an 8 track Tascam cassette-recorder, a vintage Neumann U67 and some of his first ever Casio keyboards. With upfront doubled vocals, in your face lyrics in a landscape of dreamy synthesisers and softly strummed acoustic guitar, Escapology is Thijs’ most intimate release to date.
