How would you describe yourselves?
We are a group of like-minded musicians who have formed Lucks Lane to collaborate on the work of songwriter Pete Moore. We all have a variety of different influences, which works really well within the band. We are just a bunch of guys who love making new music.
Who are your main influences musically?
We have so many influences, ranging from Ed Sheeran, Foo Fighters, Bon Jovi to Avenged Sevenfold, Metallica and everything in between. Each member brings their own influences to the band, which allows us to jump between genres. We are a rock band but we love to surprise people with a ballad or acoustic track every so often.
What do you hope to achieve in music?
We just want to reach as many people as we can and have as much fun as possible along the way. We have no delusions of grandeur and are just enjoying ourselves. If our music has an impact on someone then we have achieved our goals, success is not all about making money, making good music is the main aim.
What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
It’s probably the release of our debut album ‘A New Someone’ in Oct 2012. We had the idea to release an album just for fun and to have a body of work that we could be proud of. Lucks Lane was originally only supposed to be a one-off album project. Once we released it, the feedback and the amount of radio play that every track on the album received worldwide blew us away. We were not expecting that at all. An amazing feeling and definitely a highlight.
And what’s the moment you want to forget?
To be honest, we have been incredibly lucky and have received awesome support from everyone so far. Every band goes through tough times, but we are friends first and I think that has been the key to avoiding major issues. There are no egos in the band and everyone brings fresh ideas into every session. If it’s not working we change it. I guess the moment we want to forget is still in the future, I’m sure it will happen soon enough though lol!
If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
The song that probably represents us best is ‘Take Me To The Edge’ which was on our debut album. It was chosen to be on a compilation album of indie artists, which was a huge compliment for us. It was one of the first songs we recorded and we still love playing it.

Anything else you’d like to say about your band/music that I forgot to ask?
We are nearly finished recording our second album ‘The Story Of Our Lives’ which we hope to release in May 2014. After which we will start a UK tour, (dates to be confirmed). Also, a massive thanks for giving us the opportunity to be part of your Q&A. We really appreciate it!
