Loyal fans describe their music as "epic", "dark", or "post-industrial”, “heavy rock with strong and at the same time vulnerable vocals”; some say they sound “like Evanescence meets A Perfect Circle” … Lucid Fly founders Nikki Layne and Doug Mecca joined forces in Florida in 2001. On the hunt for the perfect name, they stumbled over an old newspaper featuring an article on American astronaut Shannon Lucid, who had set a new world record for a woman spending 188 days in space. The headline “Lucid Flies Into The Record Book” stuck, and Lucid Fly was born. The band exploded into the Orlando music scene and quickly gained a large and devoted following. 2005 saw the release of their debut EP, Adapting To Gravity, and the fan community kept growing. After playing venues all over Florida for a couple of years, singer Nikki and guitarist Doug saw it was time to head out to California to win over the West Coast. In L.A., they teamed up with drummer Aaron Ficca, who has toured with acts like Macy Gray, and bassist Go Nakabayashi, who quit a successful, signed band in Japan to pursuit his dream of making it in the US. Lucid Fly’s song writing is more powerful than ever … resulting in the recent release of their second EP, The Escape Stage.
