Loyal fans describe their music as "epic", "dark", or "post-industrial”, “heavy rock with strong and at the same time vulnerable vocals”; some say their sound is “like Evanescence meets A Perfect Circle” …
Lucid Fly founders Nikki Layne and Doug Mecca joined forces in Orlando, Florida in 2001. On the hunt for the perfect name, a friend stumbled over an old newspaper with a headline that read “Lucid Flies Into The Record Book”, featuring an article on astronaut Shannon Lucid, who had broken the record for the longest duration in space by an American, as well as by a female. From that headline, Lucid Fly was born. The band exploded onto the Orlando music scene and quickly gained a large and devoted following. 2005 saw the release of their debut EP, Adapting To Gravity.
After playing venues all over Florida and the southeast for a couple of years, singer Nikki and guitarist Doug saw it was time to head out to California to win over the West Coast. In L.A., they teamed up with bassist Go Nakabayashi, who quit a successful, signed band in Japan to pursue his dream of making it in the US. In 2007, the band released a second EP titled “The Escape Stage” which has received stellar feedback and has also continued to grab audiences attention and widen their fanbase.
Most recently, they began working with Chilean drummer Fernando Jaramillo, who has toured with acts like Beto Cuevas. Lucid Fly’s sound has always been about constant evolution. They have spent the last few months working on new material for their upcoming full length album. Their songwriting is more powerful than ever! The band will be hitting the studio to record in the fall of 2011.
The word is spreading, and their mission has only begun...stay tuned!!
