Wake Up Lucid In The Press
“If their demos are any indication of what’s in store, we’re expecting raunchy rock at it’s best.” – Rolling Stone
“Forging a fresh take on funk, while bronzing the best in blues, this heavy trio’s stripped-down sound earns their renown.” – Performer Magazine
“...it’s exactly the kinda thing your folks might’ve been listening to at the moment of your conception.” – My Old Kentucky Blog
“‘Look Alive People’ affirms the muscle of a good old-fashioned power trio. …Wake Up Lucid is pretty ripped.” – Kevin Bronson, Buzzbands LA
“...the bleary-eyed intensity of a late 60’s biker-band combo, recalling both the blues rock of the early Stones and the proto-punk of the Stooges.” – iTunes
About Wake Up Lucid
L.A.’s Wake Up Lucid started as a vision of singer/guitarist Ryan Baca’s father, who had passed years earlier. In the dream, they wrote a song together, and the name of the song was “Wake Up Lucid.”
Since that fateful night in 2008, Ryan and his two cousins Ian Baca (Bass) and Jamie Baca (Drums) have quickly burned their names into the rock and roll conscience of Southern California with an old school brew of savage blues, heavy rhythm, and the kind of down home sincerity long lost to corporate Nu-Metal, how-to-play-guitar videos, and ten thousand dollar “vintage” guitar amps.
In the two years since Wake Up Lucid’s inception, the band has already gained recognition from Rolling Stone, Performer, My Old Kentucky Blog and many others. Following up their 2009, all-analog EP “Look Alive People,” Wake Up Lucid is back with a new EP entitled “Sugar,” once again tracked live at the famed Village Recorder Studios.
“They called us up the night before and said we could record one song,” says Ryan, “We were so hungry to get in there, we ended up recording five songs, recording right over our last master because we couldn’t get any more tape!”
Yes, it’s true. Crank “Sugar” up, and in between songs you’ll hear the drum tracks from Wake Up Lucid’s previous EP, “Look Alive People.” In case you were questioning Wake Up Lucid’s rock n’ roll authenticity -- it doesn’t get any more raw than this.
Currently, Wake Up Lucid is already back in the studio tracking for an upcoming debut full-length. The future is definitely bright for this rock and roll family, as Ryan Baca states, “Our dads were brothers. We grew up watching them play together, and doing this just keeps up that family tradition.”
