Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Tony Lucca will be releasing his covers album, Under The Influence, on September 27, 2011, via Rock Ridge Music.   A 10-song compilation of tunes (see full track listing below) by artists that influenced Lucca as a musician and songwriter, the album was produced by Mike Vizcarra (Brian Wright, Ladies Gun Club, Truth & Salvage Co.).   Under The Influence is the next entry in Lucca’s catalogue and follows on the heels of 2010’s Rendezvous With The Angels.
Says Lucca of his latest musical undertaking:   “Under The Influence was originally going to be called Wish List, consisting of songs I wish I had written. These, of course, would have been songs I’ve spent the last 20 or so years learning and playing for people. However, when it came time to make the record, I realized that what I could stand to benefit from more would be something a bit less conventional, maybe say, a little less predictable. After some great discussions with my producer Mike Vizcarra and our friend Brian Wright, we decided to dig a little deeper, come up with a set of songs that might pay a greater ‘homage,’ songs that could possibly reflect a deeper sense of well, influence.”
