Tony Lucca review…March 29, 2019….

TONY LUCCA

AIN’T NO STORM

EVERYTHING’S CHANGING–COME AROUND–ONE LESS YOU–FRAME BY FRAME–RESTLESS HEART–EMPTY HANDED BLUES–ROOM WITH A VIEW–OTHER SIDE OF THE CLOUDS–FRAME BY FRAME (RADIO EDIT)

New to Nashville,  singer/songwriter Tony Lucca makes a powerful statement within the roots/Americana genre’ with his latest set, “Ain’t No Storm,” tracked over in East Nashville at Cartoon Moon Studio, with Ken Coomer producing, while veteran players Michael Webb, Ted Pecchio, Joe Garcia, and even Patrick Sweany (on “Room With A View”) lent their support.

On the eight cuts herein, Tony writes for the Everyman in all of us looking for that special relationship, and the cuts deal with growing up, making mistakes, and learning from it all.  Give a listen to the leadoff “Everything’s Changing,” as our hero discovers the intricacies in not only his emotions but those of others during the process of growing up.  A one-time lover who now never seems to “Come Around” even tho Tony offers to start anew is another fine cut, while realizing that a relationship just isn’t gonna work makes it much easier to deal with “One Less You.”

We had two favorites, too.  A jangly, Byrds-ish tale of fickle lovers on both sides of the fence are each blessed/cursed with “a reckless mind and a Restless Heart!”  And, a film-noir-ish look at youthful, unrequited love with its seeds planted at the now-defunct neighborhood drive-in has Tony reliving the whole bittersweet affair “flashing before me, Frame By Frame.”  The song is reprised as a radio edit to close the set.

Tony Lucca found his move to our fair city to be a win-win situation, as he was met by the songwriting community here with open arms.  His “daily and diligently” writing regimen has certainly paid off, with the strong material in “Ain’t No Storm.”  Until next time…Sheryl and Don Crow, The Nashville Blues And Roots Alliance.
