Lucas Lou, a Pop-Rock artist, singer/songwriter and philanthropist with the ambition to make art which points towards the good things in life and inspires to take a good stand for charity and goodness has released his new single ‘Starlight’ from his debut EP ‘Cry it Out’. We heard it here first! And we can tell you that this song has the perfect development from sappiness to acceptance.
Lucas starts off by singing in a deep/raspy low tone, with a nostalgic melody and beautiful acoustic chord from a guitar. He sings “I know you feel it too, heartbroken for it is too soon, the time has finally come the end of what has just begun” which then transcends into him singing “ when the coming of the night, we are breaking loose” and the song climaxes from a low energetic, sad piece to a more empowering emotional piece. Lucas, being a character of moral and embracing that into his artistry, possesses those exact qualities in his Starlight single. Check his EP out and see if you can relate to his lyricism with a soothing tone from his beautiful tenor vocals!

Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Hi. My name is Lucas Lou. I’m a pop-rock artist, singer and songwriter from Dusseldorf, Germany.
Can you give us a brief history of your musical career?
My father is a guitar teacher and so I literally grew up with a guitar in my hand. I started singing and writing my own songs before I could even sing or write a single word in English correctly and after buying my first electric guitar and using kitchenware to piece together a “drum set” the musical career has officially been started. I released my first EP 'Cry It Out' in 2017, followed by a Single 'Starlight' in 2018. And now, with new songs in the pipeline and some
promising things happening it feels like the next career step is just around the corner.
Do you write your own music? Can you tell us a bit about your writing style?
I do write my own music. Songwriting is a huge passion for me and has always been part of my identity. Unlike in other areas in life, when I write I’m a radical perfectionist. My songwriting always starts with me and my guitar – just playing and singing whatever comes to my mind. The moment I hear or feel something special - that makes sense to me and sounds as if people could
connect easily and sing along - I continue to work on it and let one part lead to the next. I always try to break everything down to its most simple and on-point version – lyrically and musically – until there is nothing unnecessary and exchangeable left. Ultimately, my songs have to be mainstream but original and always serve my overall values and message in sound and words.
We’re really into your new song! Can you tell us a bit about it?
"Starlight" has been released in January 2017 and it is an acoustic pop song based on a true story about a friendship which turned out to be love. Since circumstances made that love impossible the song starts from a place of heartache and pain of loss. Though, during the pre-chorus and chorus it
develops into a hopeful hymn of love and romance illustrated by a starlit sky.
Where did the inspiration behind the song come from?
The song is based on a true story and grew out of true heartache which was very present during the time of writing. So, the inspiration behind the song was just an urge to process and express what I felt and believed in these days.
What are three things you’d love your fans to know about you?
There are three things I’d love my fans to know, cause these things define who I am: First, I love God. Second, I love people. And third, everything that I do results from that and is intended to contribute to a better world.
For someone who hasn’t seen you live yet, how would you describe your performance?
No show-off, just us – natural, honest and personal. We love music, we love
people and we love to bring it all together at our live shows and just have fun.
What’s next for you?
The best is yet to come and there’s so much ahead - new music, new videos, new shows, new ways to engage and a lot more insights. Get connected on social media and stay tuned, it’s all coming pretty soon.
