Lucero

Adding a Southern flavor to their love of the indie folk-pop of Ida, Memphis alt-country rockers Lucero have suffered the turbulence that comes with the indie scene, but their story of perseverance and survival is triumphant, so much so that director Aaron Goldman made a film about it. Formed by leader Ben Nichols in the late '90s, Lucero took their name from the Spanish word meaning "bright star." After releasing a single on the Landmark label, Lucero -- rounded out by drummer Roy Berry, bassist John C. Stubblefield and guitarist Brian Venable -- signed with the alternative country label Madjack for their 2001 self-titled debut. Momentum started to build with their 2002 release, Tennessee. With critics picking up on their rock and Replacements edge, a decision was made to sign with the more diverse label Tiger Style. The 2003 release That Much Further West earned them positive reviews and a spot on Rolling Stone's Hot List. Things seemed to be going well, but as the album was catching indie fire, Tiger Style announced they were closing shop.

The band formed its own label, Liberty & Lament, through a deal with East West and worked on its next album with famed musician/producer Jim Dickinson. Released in spring of 2005, Nobody's Darlings featured the most Southern-fried sounds from the band yet. Mixing archival footage along with footage shot during the recording of the album, Goldman premiered his Lucero documentary Dreaming in America in September of 2005. A month later the film was released on DVD and CD/DVD featuring 13 rare live bonus tracks. The out of print effort The Attic Tapes (originally released prior to their 2001 Madjack debut) was reissued in April 2006 with bonus early demo and rare 7" tracks, which preceded the release of Lucero's next studio effort, September's Rebels, Rogues & Sworn Brothers. Supporting tour dates through the fall followed with openers Rocky Votolato and William Elliott Whitmore. The year 2009 saw the release of Nichols' solo EP The Last Pale Light in the West along with the band's album 1372 Overton Park. Lucero spent the remainder of the year on tour in support of the album.

Lucero remained busy touring in 2010 and 2011. Although they didn't record, they played festivals ranging from the SXSW to Coachella to the Van's Warped Tour (Nichols played some solo shows as well). Toward year's end, they re-entered the studio to begin Women & Work, their debut offering for ATO Records. Produced by Ted Hutt, and featuring a full horn section -- as well as guest vocals from Amy LaVere -- the album was released in March of 2012 and followed by an American tour. In November 2013, Lucero played a three-night stand in Atlanta; the show was recorded with an eye toward officially documenting the group's powerful live show. The two-hour-plus Live from Atlanta followed in August 2014, issued by Liberty & Lament in partnership with Ingrooves. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi

They are touring right now with Drive By Truckers. I am pretty stoked because they are coming to Omaha in a few months. I saw them two years ago and did shots with Ben. Super cool guy.

I have seen them in Fort Collins, Denver, Little Rock, and Hot Springs. What an act! Ben really just does kick it sometimes in the crowd and will sing or shots. These guys are the real deal, and should be MUCH MUCH bigger.
all time favorite. absolutely great guys, unbelivably talented musicians and songwriters. . . h a p p y to call them friends
All time favorite band, seen them live and met them after the show. They TRULY appreciate the fans and I believe would have stood there till the sun came up to take every picture and sign every autograph. Musical genius
lucero is amazing live seen them a few weeks ago keep it up lucero
lucero is freggin great
I think of The Meat Puppets/Nirv a n a . . . P l a y great and sing real bad lol. It is great music!
Memphis has so much hidden talent that's it's unbelievable . . With producers like the late Big Jim D, Sam Phillips, and about 20 more less known, musicians have a great jumping off point... it's just getting the rest of the world to take them seriously that counts, and usually all that takes is a few minutes of listening to some Memphis Musician's Music... Elvis strolled through town, these type bands are the true nuts and bolts of Memphis Music !!! Beale Street, Cooper & Young, East Memphis, an

Good lord, the singer is horrible.Yea h , I get it, he's supposed to sound like whiskey and cigarettes. Mission acomplished but still just really, really awful.
wenberep
When the honey badger wakes up in the morning. He puts on Lucero and then gets ready for his day.
This is the best damn American band on any scene today. they should be in every serious music lovers top ten. Plus, they are some of the most appreciative , humble, and lovers of their fans as you will evr find. Stay strong Lucero- you will be given your due.
I love them and listen to them EVERYDAY!!!! ! !
Reminds me of why I like Chris Knight -Dar from Roundstone, Ky
