Ryan Lucas is a DC, USA based Hip-Hop performer and producer who recently moved to Los Angeles and is influenced by A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots, N.E.R.D., Common, Yasiin Bey and WuTang. Growing up in the DMV, Ryan developed a deep passion for Hip-Hop which spiraled into a lifelong ambition. He began working on his craft and in 2011 he recorded his first official record.
With strong determination and dedication, Ryan recorded the ep “Boy Meets Girl” under the name “Kevin Live!” The feedback was tremendous and Ryan's fan base grew rapidly. Despite the hype, and publicity, Ryan remained focused. In June 2013 Ryan went in search of a backing band. Several musicians responded to the post and “The DC Gentlemen Band” was launched. They later evolved into a group of three members: Ryan Lucas, D2 and Trevor.
As a follow up to "Boy Meets Girl", Ryan recorded and released another ep called "Next Chapter." "Next Chapter" was considered a powerful addition to his catalog. He is currently touring around the country with "Next Chapter" and is planning to tour in Africa, Europe, Asia and South America. January 15, 2016 Ryan released a full length album called "I Want Her Back."
Ryan Lucas has proven himself to be the next big artist out of the DMV. His passion for Hip-Hop, and love for his fans has brought him a long way. “You have the POWER within yourself to change the world. BE HAPPY, BE HEALTHY, BE FLY, BE L!VE”, says Ryan Lucas.
