Local Musician Hits the Red Carpet


A graduate of Southern Illinois University, Kevin Lucas holds three music degrees, and has built his career over the years, from poverty to the People’s Choice Awards in London. Now, after six years of attempting to join the Grammy’s, Lucas is finally getting his chance to perform. “You have to go out and work and create a circumstance, and create an environment to give success a chance.” Lucas will be playing his instrumental piece ‘Oceans Rising’ at the Official Red Carpet Grammy event in Los Angeles, demonstrating his multi-talented skills on drums and marimba. Lucas will be performing in front of celebrates and fellow artists. Being a musician isn’t easy, but Lucas says he’s glad he never gave up. The event takes place February 6 at the House of Blues.
