Lucas Davies - you

March 28, 2022

“you”, written, performed and produced by Vancouver, Canada-based Lucas Davies is one of those love songs that makes you wish you wrote it. With a simple rhythm guitar, a softly distorted lead guitar, gentle percussion re-enforcing the 3/4 time, and smooth buttery vocals, it doesn’t seek to crowd the space, rather simply and understatedly captures what it feels to fall in love; to “fall in to you”. The songwriting is solid and universal - and would be a great add to your favorite playlist.

I was able to catch up with Davies this past week and got some great insight into the artist. About his new release, Davis says “you” is “about how falling for someone can draw you into them in a way that’s hard to resist. The song started when I wrote this line that would later become the chorus: ‘It’s not that I want it, it’s more of a need.’ Which I thought was a very simple but impactful way of describing love. Everything else was built around that.

With several singles to his credit since he began releasing music in 2018, and album “Hold on - Summer” (2020), Lucas Davies is becoming a seasoned songwriter at a young age. Davies started writing music when he was only 11 or 12 years old. “My dad is also a musician so I grew up in a household full of instruments which is what inspired me to start at a young age. As a teenager, I practiced nearly every day and learned how to perform and sing in front of crowds at my high school.” Davies learned how to record and produce music at his local college and began recording and self-producing his own music. “Since then I’ve been releasing original music and trying to improve myself and grow my audience.

Of course, like most artists in the indie music space, he’s had time to learn lessons along the way. And among those, we spoke about how we tend to compare ourselves to others. Davies advice is to give ourselves a break. “I think one of the most important things I had to learn is to not compare [my]self too harshly to other musicians and songwriters. When I started writing songs as a teenager I would listen to some of my favorite songs, then listen back to my own originals and get discouraged because I could never imagine myself capable of writing something of that quality. It’s important to remember that some of the best songs that you hear on the radio are written and performed by songwriters and musicians who have been honing their skills for many years. Also when you’re looking at an artist’s catalog you are only seeing their best ideas - for every song that gets released, there are a hundred song ideas that never see the light of day.

I personally found “you” to be to the heart of what we look for at Indie Music Center. I was moved by the heart of it, the production quality and the songwriting. As for the future, Davies continues to create new songs and content. “I’m currently working on my next single and I plan to release as much music as I can in 2022 to grow my fanbase.” Davies is thankful to his friends and family for their endless support for him and his music.
