    Biography

    Lucky Holloway is a Canadian country music singer/songwriter whose decidedly raw and honest style hearkens back to the rural roots of country and folk music. Taking inspiration from the likes of musical legends Hank Williams and Lefty Frizzell, he has been described as "as down-home country as ol' Hank with lyrics drenched in sobbing guitars" by the Vancouver Province. Lucky is the real deal, moving on from a troubled, criminal past to an inspired life filled with heartfelt lyrics and music. His passionate live shows and "true grit" ethic have built him a strong following of devoted fans.

    Lucky has been fronting successful bands in Calgary, Austin and Vancouver for the better part of 25 years, including Lucky Holloway's Hillbilly Revue, The Walking Dead, The Deltans, Big Sky & Hopetown (with Robin Pollak). He has opened for the likes of the Beat Farmers, the Headstones and the Cowboy Junkies. Lucky Holloway's Hillbilly Revue, based in Calgary, finds Lucky accompanied by some of the best musicians in Western Canada (Thom Moon/Drums, Randy Fournier/Bass, Brent Wright/Guitar, Charlie Hase/Steel).

    Born in Lethbridge, Alberta and raised in Pincher Creek, Lucky's roots in country run deep – there wasn't anything else on the radio when he was growing up there. At a young age, Lucky found himself constantly at odds with the law. Being sent to reform school didn't help, and Lucky ended up in jail until age 23, when he was released in Vancouver to a thriving music scene that embraced him. He instantly got involved with the local punk and country scenes, forming bands with members of DOA, Animal Slaves, Roots Roundup, Bughouse 5 and Surfdusters. After touring relentlessly, Lucky moved on, spending 5 years in Austin, Texas. Playing in Austin (as well as Tulsa and Baton Rouge) raised the bar for Lucky, and he came home with a deeper understanding of the range of country music, adding more swing, bluegrass, county-blues and gulf coast styles to his show.

    Lucky's new CD, Up the Highway, released by his own record label, Boot Cut Records, is really the fruition of 20 years' hard work, and is already bringing in new fans for Lucky as well as for country music itself. Find out more about Lucky Holloway at www.luckyholloway.com.
