Appetizer feature artist Matt Morris cut his teeth in music as a kid on the Mickey Mouse Club. His co-stars included Justin Timberlake and Tony Lucca. To this day, those three are still good friends. For Lucca, the Mickey Mouse Club would open up other doors beyond music, including roles in TV like Aaron Spelling’s Malibu Shores. His music career would take him to the hit TV show The Voice, where Adam Levine would pick him on his team, leading to a 2nd place finish in the 2012 season.
In music as in life, when one door opens and you pursue it with your focus and talents, usually other doors become available for entry as well. The Voice would take Tony to a record deal with Adam Levine’s label 222 Records, a worldwide tour with Maroon 5 and Kelly Clarkson, and new fans across the globe.
But not all of these portals are meant to be forever destinations.
The record deal ended in 2013 and since then Tony Lucca has ventured into the world of indie music, allowing his creative songwriting to shine without the direction or control of anyone but him. It’s the entrepreneurial dream for a musician, which is full of a combination of blessings and questions. Fortunately for us, Tony is a sharing individual. His insights into his successes and the road less traveled in this podcast shine a great light for both music fans and for unsigned, indie musicians looking for a clearer path forward in their music endeavors.
