Born and raised in Milton, New York with an upbringing in musical theater and the performing arts, Lucas Neil was endowed with the beauty and responsibility of what it means to be an entertainer at a very young age.
Neil’s musical style, an acoustic blend of Americana and indie-folk, has a palpable sense of spiritual symbolism, storytelling, atmosphere, and gratitude for life.
Neil combines tastes of the great singer/songwriters of years past like James Taylor and Bob Dylan with the new-age musicality of acts like Gregory Alan Isakov and Blind Pilot.
Most important to the creation and experience of his music, Neil says, is an intimate relationship with our natural world, meaning the elements and creatures in our environment as well as our own psyche, bodies, and souls.
Neil has appeared on bills with Ryan Montbleau, Josh Rouse, and Elly Kace and has been featured in such events as the Rhode Island Folk Fest, Hartbeat Music Festival, Blackbear Music Festival, Mystic Folkways, River Glow Arts Festival, and Block Island, Rhode Island’s Conserfest, an arts festival that raises proceeds for the National Nature Conservancy.
He invites you to join him in person at one of his shows, that often range from laid back bar gigs based in song requests and laughter, to intimate listening room performances best for crying, healing, and loving.
