Album Notes
Hard on the heels of his recent solo outing “Little Town Blues”, local troubadour Mark Lucas is back with a new offering from his stalwart band, The Dead Setters.

Originally from the UK Mark spins tales of the ordinary and beyond armed with a dry wit & a sharp telecaster; add Jake Lardot (Belgium) album producer & one of Australia’s most respected guitar players (check 14 years on the road with Lee Kernaghan), John Lee (Georgia, USA) fiddle & mandolin, Steve Gunning (all over the place via Woodford) drums (former sideman to Vicky O’Keefe, Grace Knight amongst others), & Chris Mearns (the not-so-token Australian) bass, who’s been plying his trade longer than most have a right to, and you’ve got a multicultural take on country roots music, embracing folk, country and blues with a foot in the past and ear to the future.

Praise for current album ”Putting on the Dog”:

“perfectly exemplifies Lucas's love of the Heartworn Highways singer-songwriter school and his determination to tell Australian stories. Backed by the Dead Setters Lucas sounds right at home - like he's where he's destined to be.” - Martin Jones, Rhythms Magazine
“A literate songwriter, in the tradition of Texas troubadours Joe Ely, James McMurtry & Robert Earl Keen, whose vignettes come alive with recognisable characters & familiar backdrops, Mark has pulled out all stops here to produce his strongest and most accessible album yet".
- Kim Cheshire, Country Update Magazine
“An album that puts Lucas up there with the best of singer songwriters, Americana with Australian stories.” -
