“Aural manifestations of metaphysical struggles and a warped sense of reality. These are sounds and patterns created as an effort to maintain relationships with nature, truth, and organicism – while skeptically accepting technological modernity and the digital world.”
Lucas Brode, a native of New York’s Hudson Valley, is a guitarist & composer who draws from jazz harmony, experimental rock textures, and African rhythms. In addition to studying jazz guitar and composition, he spent several years learning percussive concepts from traditional Ghanian master drummer, Yacub Addy. Lucas often performs solo, leads his own trio, co-leads the Post-Rock / Math-Rock hybrid Hannibal Montana, and is an active performer and improviser in the NYC and Hudson Valley experimental music scenes. Past and present collaborators include G. Calvin Weston, Kevin Shea, Luke Stewart, Colin Fisher, Zach Cooper, Al Margolis, and many more.
Lucas tours regularly, performing at museums, galleries, cafes, DIY spaces, and traditional music venues such as the New Museum (NYC), Knitting Factory (NYC), the Mothlight (Asheville), Rhizome (DC), the Windup Space (Baltimore), Spread Art (Detroit), Cafe Mustache (Chicago), and Gallery 5 (Richmond) to name a few. He has shared bills with many well known rock bands and avant-garde musicians throughout his career, including The Antlers, Tatsuya Nakatani, Oneida, Joe McPhee, Ava Mendoza, Hank Roberts, Kayo Dot, Brandon Seabrook, and others.
