Lucid was born and raised in the diverse musical culture unique to the City of Plattsburgh, New York, nestled high in the Adirondack Mountains.
The area’s mix of local musicians, college students, out-of-towners and rural regulars brings together music fans from all walks of life. Nearly a decade of progress and development has established Lucid as one of the most dynamic, hard working, finely tuned bands in the North Country.
Lucid’s enlivening, powerful performances energize concert goers from open to encore. Their songs remain structurally tight and carefully woven, distinguishing them from their jam band counterparts. Still, they’re unpredictable in nature, with a knack for improv and a talent for delivery. Find yourself in the celebration that is a Lucid show, and you’ll quickly understand the infectious, unique experience that music fans are raving about. Come. Join the party.
Released on June 24, 2011, Blue Light City– the third full length studio recording from progressive rock band Turbine– debuted at #3 in the Relix / Jambands.com and Homegrown Music radio charts and has raised the bar for the band and—possibly, in terms of studio recordings, for the broader jam rock community as a whole. Produced by Grammy-winner John Davis (The Black Keys), Blue Light City evokes the smart groove-pop of ’80’s bands like INXS and XTC, the psychedelic rock of Flaming Lips and Pink Floyd, the soul-rock of Jimi Hendrix’s Band of Gypsies, aspects of prog-rock pioneers Yes and King Crimson and even elements of late 70’s era Grateful Dead, all in one strangely cohesive record. These diverse influences would typically clash and burn, but Turbine’s singular vision combines them in a way that makes it all simply sound like Turbine.
