"Ross Lucas is an Eau Claire, WI musician and composer.  Having failed music class in his freshman year of high school he promptly left school and started his first band Wussbudget.  The band quickly became a non-staple on radio but soon fizzled, a surprise victim of it's own lack of success.  With nothing to lose, Ross moved to the U.K.  During his two year sojourn he wrote many songs and managed to get kicked out of a couple different bands for failing to sound like either John Squire or Tom DeLonge.  On his return to Wisconsin he got involved in mythological sound experimenters Dietnam.   Dietnam morphed into rocknroll outfit the Giddy Aunts.  Ross played guitar and sang in the Aunts and also played bass in punk band Pronto.  The two bands shared shows with legends like the Disabled, Dios Mio, Arms Aloft, Tenement and Off With Their Heads at many regional venues such as the Warehouse in LaCrosse, Nate's Dungeon, and Thirsty Pagan in Superior.  Pronto and the Giddy Aunts ran their course and eventually Ross joined post brit-pop band the Marquees who released one single.  Ross subsequently went to work on realizing his dream of releasing a full album, a project he had tried and failed at several times over the years(the best of the worst of the botched results of these attempts will be released on a compilation called 'Deformities' sometime in 2023).  In March of 2020 he released his solo full length album 'Pastoral Paragraphs'.  He recently finished a follow up, 'Endless Winter' which will be released on vinyl and streaming October 31, 2022."
