Howdy Folks,

Then the rest of the week is a quiet one for Bonanza & Son until Sunday when it’s time for our monthly VJ/DJ set at The Defectors Weld where we provide a backdrop of classic and cult films and play the best film soundtracks and other laid-back Sunday tunes whilst you down a few pints, nosh on the best Sunday roasts around or maybe take advantage of two-for-one cocktails.

Bonanza & Son on ResonanceFM

Live session:
Austin Lucas:
Interview and live session from New West’s latest hot signing not to mention one of Bonanza & Son's Top 25 LPs of 2013 Mix.

Austin Lucas’ Stay Reckless LP was hardly off the Bonanza & Son turntable last year with it’s capable hybrid of traditional Western aesthetics and Alternative-Rock posture topped off with the voice of an angel.

Raised in the backwoods country of Monroe County, Indiana, Austin Lucas was born into a Folk and Bluegrass lineage. His father, Bob Lucas, is an accomplished musician and performer in his own right, having earned songwriting credits on two of Allison Krauss’ albums. Learning to harmonize before learning to read, Lucas honed his vocal control as a member of the nationally-acclaimed Indiana University Children’s Choir. In a narrative as well-worn as it is true, Lucas rebelled against his upbringing, leaving his Americana roots for the catharsis of punk rock. After the better part of a decade spent criss-crossing the globe with a series of bands in broken-down vans, Lucas hit a musical glass-ceiling, eventually finding respite for his ringing ears in the delicacy of traditional songcraft.
Singing with the conviction of a preacher bereft of his faith, Lucas tackles recurrent themes of the soul, sin as personal purgatory, and the possibility of finding redemption in this life. The fallacies of man take center stage as the righteous false prophet is denounced as a “hollow vessel with unsteady hands.” Turning the harsh light of hindsight on himself, Lucas addresses the hard lessons learned in the passing of youth, ruminating on the failures and missed opportunities, pledging, “If there’s a light shining/ Point the way there/ A straight way of walking/ I’ll be like an arrow.”

+ We also have Tristan and Danny Tippin from Clubhouse Records coming in to talk about their London based Americana label with its fine roster of musicians. They will also be donating a huge goody bag of CDs, T-shirts, badges and suchlike to the on-going ResonanceFM fundraiser. Tune in for a chance to bag the goodies!

As always we will be playing the best of all the upcoming Country & Americana releases including forthcoming albums by Ray Wylie Hubbard, Jeff Finlin, The Delines, Marah plus plenty of vintage, vinyl nuggets from the ever-growing Bonanza & Son archive.
