Born and raised in New Orleans, he spent his formative years in a religious cult"of which his mother was a member. Barred from any and all "secular music," he taught himself melodies by singing Bible verses and Dr. Seuss rhymes. Once mum fled the cult, life quieted until Hurricane Katrina hit and literally washed life as he knew it away. The family fled to Tyler, TX, but Lucky aimed to launch a career in music. He made his way to Atlanta, where he spent some time recording before seeking a brighter future in music and road tripping to LA. Once there, he met D'Mile and crafted Painted, which takes you through a journey of Lucky's life experiences.
Released under Keep Cool, RCA Records and Sony Music Entertainment Australia, Lucky's story unfolds by way of the smoky full-spectrum R&B on the record. With the release of PAINTED, Lucky enters the music world with a powerful debut, leaving his footprint and fortifying the groundwork to become the next rising star in R&B.
