Lucid Fly

Lucid Fly

 Los Angeles, California, USA

"Lucid Fly’s sound is unerringly progressive...rock solid...with a powerfully feminine punch."


Loyal fans describe their music as "epic", "dark", alternative progressive, heavy rock with strong and at the same time vulnerable vocals; some say their sound is like Evanescence meets A Perfect Circle.

Lucid Fly founders Nikki Layne and Doug Mecca joined forces in Orlando, Florida in 2001. On the hunt for the perfect name, a friend stumbled over an old newspaper with a headline that read Lucid Flies Into The Record Book, featuring an article on astronaut Shannon Lucid, who had broken the record for the longest duration in space by an American, as well as by a female. From that headline, Lucid Fly was born. The band exploded onto the Orlando music scene and quickly gained a large and devoted following. 2005 saw the release of their debut EP, Adapting To Gravity.

After playing venues all over Florida for a couple of years, singer Nikki and guitarist Doug saw it was time to head out to California to win over the West Coast. In L.A., they teamed up with drummer Aaron Ficca, who has toured with acts like Macy Gray. In October 2014, the band released a collection of 3 singles called "Stasis" to follow up their second EP titled "The Escape Stage" which has received stellar feedback and has also continued to grab audiences attention and widen their fan base.

Lucid Fly has spent the last year working on new material. Their songwriting is stronger than ever, and the band is excited to report that they returned to the studio August 2014 and are working on their next release...Building Castles In Air, due out in 2016.

The word is spreading, and their mission has only begun...stay tuned!!


Center Of Your Space

Written By: Nikki Layne

In this circle
Am I so safe
Conflict, confusion
That we must face

Together to know
This circle is safe
And this is my place

I am the center of your space
You sense my distance
Even when I'm not away
Some day these legs won't stand so tall
From this pedestal you've put me on

In this circle
I am so safe
It’s static it’s never ending
And no time can erase

Together we know
This circle is our fate
It’s our fate

And this crown it will fall
From its time of reign
