He has performed in numerous clubs in the Huntsville, Athens, Madison area but has also been at many record pools in Birmingham, Alabama and is continuing to market himself and create much excitement for these projects. Lucchi says his surroundings and things he goes through on the day to day is what inspires his music. His style is very unique in that he puts no limits on what he will do pertaining to genres and even concepts. He wants to make his mark in the industry by being unique and always cutting edge.
