Lucas Laufen Short Info

New beginnings also mean saying goodbye to an old life – to create a new chapter, you leave behind another, and leave an old version of yourself behind.

In 2016, the Australian troubadour – a classically influenced singer and folk guitarist left everything behind in his coastal town Port Lincoln for a dream life on the European road.

A competent pianist at the age of 8, a trumpet player at 10, in his teens Laufen discovered the acoustic guitar and began writing own songs. After school, he began studying and working, however exhausting 60-hour weeks kept him from his goals, and the desire for self-realisation grew.

In 2016, he moved to Berlin in 2016 to fulfill his life dream: to give his music to the world.

Recorded in Port Lincoln the cusp of his European transformation, Laufen’s 2017 EP Goodbye is a master class in beauty and restraint – a nostalgic ride that captures his thoughts and feelings of a time of departure.

Laufen’s music is the sort that makes us stop and breathe: sombre falsetto melodies married to shimmering guitar; elemental orchestrations that yearn and plunge – the coastal poetry of the wild Australian imaginary.

With a strong touring schedule already under his belt since arriving in Berlin, Laufen continues to magnetise a loyal European fan base, and is currently working towards his first full-length studio album.

"A smart and often moving debut - Folk without the rousing campfire refrains of the genre’s banjo-toting megastars." - indie Berlin

“With his sensitive and at the same time confident voice, this sweet bearded man sings to us. He tackles the loss of landmarks as well as the search for memories, isolation, freedom, sadness and love with ambition, succeeding in embellishing melancholy with honest hope.” -indiemusic

".... the songs are of a contemporary, perfect folk type“. -Rootstime
