Whether they move minds or bodies, Uncle Lucius is out to make music that can lift our spirits. And rock our souls. Though Austin roots band Uncle Lucius has worn a Southern rock tag for most of it's 10-year existence, the band's fourth studio album, The Light, charts a course designed to convey just how vast that musical territory really is. The Light dips into regions where blues, R&B, jazz, soul, country and gospel took form, mapping a sound that captures the true meaning of Americana. Containing songwriting contributions from all four band members, The Light also seeks to illuminate a different landscape: the sometimes-rocky terrain of our hearts and minds. Tracked at Austin's Treefort Studios with producer George Reiff, these 12 songs deliver what guitarist Mike Carpenter, a Houston native, likes to call 'Southern rock for the thinking man. Rock 'n' roll for the soul.' Lead singer, Kevin Galloway, admits his ultimate goal is to turn musical energy into a catalyst for humanity's evolution. This is music with depth, made by men given to truth seeking on levels both existential and literal.
