Award-winning singer-songwriter Tyson Lucas creates true Country music, with storytelling at its heart.
Described by The Queensland Country Life newspaper as having “a voice that will one-day rival that of Adam Harvey”, Tyson has already shared the stage with one of his idols, Troy Cassar Daley, twice.
At the Golden Guitar Awards, Tyson was selected to perform alongside (as a younger) Troy Cassar -Daley and described the experience as “The most exciting time of my life… I felt very honoured that Troy felt confident in my abilities.”
Tyson began playing classical guitar in his school ensemble at the age of 11 and started singing two years later. Now Sixteen, he’s already won four major awards, the 2015 Junior Talent Search of Gympie Muster, Junior Overall Charters Towers CMF, 2014 Junior Male Champions of Champions and most recently the 2016 Charters Towers Youth Section and accepted into the 2016 CMAA Academy Instrumental Course; and numerous Overall Junior Awards at Country music festivals in Queensland.
Growing up in the small mining town Dysart and then Townsville, Queensland, Tyson is inspired by his personal story and the stories of others, as well as artists such as Troy Cassar-Daley, Josh turner, Slim Dusty, Merle Haggard and Vince Gill. He likes to include songs with a hint of comedy within his repertoire.
When he’s not writing, rehearsing or performing, Tyson enjoys spending time with family and on this friend’s farm and is a member of the Australian Airforce Cadets. Described as “an old soul” and “a true gentleman”, country values and family are very important to him.
Tyson has performed at festivals and events across the country, including the Shine showcase presented by David & Meryln Carter, CMAA Graduation Showcase and the Chasing Dreams Showcase of Young Talent. He’s been the opening act for Sara Storer and played with Jared Porter and Amber Lawrence.
With his sights set on Tamworth, then Nashville, Tyson is currently working on his first EP.
“Don’t give up. Stay true to the artist you want to be.” - Tyson Lucas
"I met Tyson last year at the Gympie Muster after my manager sent me a clip of him singing one of my songs and I was very impressed with his take on the tune. So after our meeting I asked if he was headed to Tamworth for the 2016 festival and he said yes, so I invited him to perform the song on my show during the festival.
Tyson was right on the money with his warm vocals and solid guitar playing. I then asked him for another performance opportunity with me and that was the Tamworth Country Music Golden Guitar awards night. He arrived right on time for each rehearsal and really made myself, and his family very proud with his efforts on the night.
"I wish Tyson every luck in this industry of ours, not that he will need it. He knows how to work hard, and that will put him in good stead for a future in Country Music."- Troy Cassar-Daley
