Lucero, which means bright star in spanish, have been creating quality punk-inflected rock with since the late ‘90s. Hailing from Memphis, frontman Ben Nichols lends the act a gruff Southern twang both vocally and on the guitar.
We meet the blue collar heart of Memphis, the band Lucero, today on the World Cafe. Lucero has their own history with Ardent studio. Today we hear a stripped down session with the band recorded in Ardent Studio A where they worked on their breakthrough album 1372 Overton Park.
