Biography

For the French Singer please See: Luce Brunet

LUCE broke onto the national scene in 2002, and its second album, Never Ending, is well worth the wait. And so it is that Bay Area sensation LUCE is back with an independent album that solidifies its trademark penchant for melodic flair, warm vocal tones and big grooves. Never Ending is a thematic album about love that can best be described as open-heart surgery.

“Love can be a brutal thing, sometimes,” says Tom Luce, a gifted singer/songwriter and the heartbeat of LUCE, who is influenced by Lennon and McCartney, “and a beautiful thing at other times.”

Never Ending kicks off with “World of the Lonely,” a song about infatuation that sets the tone. Lead radio track “Buy a Dog” and “ Amsterdam” set the pace and are followed by the equally enduring “The Sweetest Smile” and “Fortunately, I”. Love hits a high point with the breezy tracks “Worth The Wait” and “Wanna Be” that slides gently into “Interlude One (Open Up Your Heart).” But the upbeat title track shows the relationship hitting an unsuspecting quandary that is magnified in the plaintive “Outside Of It All”. “With A Kiss” and the melancholy “Diamond Lights” signify a break-up. The sultry “Maria” basically renews the never-ending quest for love.

For Never Ending, Tom once again enlisted the help of his good friend, co-producer and band mate, Adam Rossi, who plays keyboards and other various instruments while providing background vocals. Also back from the first album is drummer Steve Bowman, formerly of Counting Crows. While the band has undergone changes, Larry Riggs remains on bass. Together, they’re as tight in their relationships with each other as they are in playing LUCE music live.
