Bio

It is somewhat known that Lucas Jackman describes his own music as jalepeno soup for the soul. This is strangely true. It will light you up, clear out the cob webs, and bring into focus things that ring distantly true in all of our souls. It is masculine but not overbearing, strong but not proud, sensitive but not weak. Growing up in rural Texas laid the foundation for this sensitive strength. Jackman was heavily influenced by gospel, folk, country and local church music. Disturbed by the lack of depth in modern commercialized church music and rapidly changing pop culture, he sought to work out this conflict in his own mind. There seemed to be a contradiction between the old and the new. Jackman thought this somehow resulted in a consumer society obsessed with wealth and fame that miraculously transforms depressed narcissists into cult idols to the benefit of no one. There was, however, music that touched his soul and seemed to be special. It dealt with reality and also provided escape. Somehow you could listen to a song and feel better. But wait, this is where he gets confused. If it is only a temporary detachment from the pending depression caused by brutal reality of a fallen world then really, what is the point? Here is what happens though. Its more than that. If you hear a great song whether it be sad or whether it be angry or whether it be any number of other things, you feel better and then you tell somebody. It connects us to each other and gives us things to talk about. These conversations aren’t always deep and spiritual but its not always surface crap either. Bottom line: Music and song-writing give us a tools to push on the things in this life that don’t make sense. Lucas Jackman does not have it all figured out but he has figured out that he doesn’t have it all figured out and also he writes some really cool songs. Enjoy, discuss with friends, and eat some spicy soup.
