Mike Johnson says:
You know I thank God for your music and our friendship. Thanks for all you do at the Taste and See Christian Coffeehouse and for helping me so much in our worship. We all love you. Still praying for your success for the kingdom...can we order the Silver Eagle tour bus now?? Love you bro,
I've just been listening to some sophisticated and superior pickin'! I really dig your instrumentals and I love that your tunes are not predictable--must be that MM in comp kickin' in! Keep pickin' and grinnin' for Him!
Chris, I've just been letting your page play this afternoon. LOVE all the acoustic guitar. Lots of variety. Cool chord progressions. VERY NICE and easy to listen to. No wonder you have more Plays than Views on your page!! I want to just let it run!! Keep it up!
Hey, Chris! I could listen to you play that guitar all day! I could get a lot of dusting and vacuuming done along with "David Danced"-- but the neighbors might complain over the volume, lol! GREAT STUFF, bro!! Blessings, Becky Wright (your sister down south in Oklahoma) www.beckywrightsongs.com (and here on IH)
Michael Rose says:
I see from a concert schedule at Columbia Lakefront Festival, Columbia, MD, that Chris Lucas is one of four musicians perfrorming at the IndieHeaven Artist SpotLIGHT on July 21, 2007, 6-10 PM (Chris' set is scheduled for 7 PM.) Chris said he might again perform on MY side of the river--I enjoyed his previous appearance in Columbia.
You made me work for this coment bro! Laeve your picture nextime so I get a nice link. LOL Brad and I playing Hendrix in a church. That's a neat thought! Chris, when I grow up I want to pick like you too. Have a nice day!
I really love your guitar playing man! We WILL get you back to Maryland.
When I grow up, I'm gonna pick it like Chris! (Sounds like a T-Shirt)
Drew Davidsen says:
Het bro, sorry I missed the show at the Lake Side Cafe' I was playing at Harrys Church. The vidoe that Rick sent around from youtube is awesome. You got skills bro! I feel blessed to be on the IH main page with you. Hope all is well. smooth jazz artist Drew Davidsen.
Michael Rose says:
I loved these samples. I looked forward to seeing and hearing you at the Lakeside Cafe in Columbia, MD, this Saturday, April 14. I first heard about you and your performance through Rick LaRocca. I hope to be able to be in the audience of your next performance of your Three Penny Cantata on April 29 at Christ Presbyterian Church in Richmond (I hope it's still on--their website does not list it; they have only their youth group meeting listed for the time--6 PM--you gave on your website!)
Michael Chacon says:
Dancing with David truely dances...
Flight Theory says:

Bizzy Bender says:
love your guitar work! Just plain ole smokin`!
Ardith Springer says:
The first time I was blessed to hear one of your songs was when a friend of mine, Meade, gave me a copy of the Floating Folk Festival Cd with "Waterline". I played it over and over. I'm hoping more and more people will get the chance to hear your music and be as blessed as I was.Doubly blessed when I learned that you are a Christian too.
sam bowen says:
The whole world should
hear Chris's music!!!!
His music is "kicking the darkness till it bleeds daylight"
Denise Dovel says:
Hey Chris! Wonderful voice and songs. We need to try to meet sometime! I think I played at the same coffeehouse as you, (Taste and See) and go to church in Chesterfield. Keep ministering to Jesus!
In His Grip,
Connie Scott says:
Wow- great guitar work - love it! Keep praising the Lord!
Drew Davidsen says:
You sound like Tommy Emanual. Great finger style. Rock on!
Laura Principato says:
I closed my eyes and pictured David dancing when I listened to track 9. Did anyone tell you that you sound like another great singer/songwriter/
guitarist - Paul Simon? Keep up the great music and the ministry. I enjoy chatting with you on the message boards. God bless!!
RICK SAWYER says:
this is great!.. so melodic, -loved "cool beans"
Jeff Jaquith - (White Stone) says:
"David Danced" - Awesome!
Danny from mile7 says:
Chris- I love your stuff, man. Your unique views on life, love, and Christianity shine through. Keep up the good work, man!
hank m. says:
Really unique songs!
I can really dig on the guitar chops!
Marti Collier says:
Saw you at the conference, you music is awsome!!!!
Lyle Thomas says:
I don't even know these guys that Chris is compared to, because I don't even listen to anything like this. But I listen to Chris!
Bryan Bailey says:
Bro. you definitely got some chops. May God continue to bless you as you pour it out for Him. I'm from Richmond, so the next time i am in town i will have to check your schedule and hopeuflly come and see you live.
G Maida says:
Like those famous amps in spinal tap Mr. Lucas is an eleven, with Taylor made sounds this side of Heaven. 4's a Croude with this guy around, new G chords abounding in his merry sound.
Tony Miles says:
Woah! Nice -real nice. Some of it reminds be a bit of Leo Kottke-but you sing way better!
Robbie Hunt / oneoften says:
Great Great guitar!!
Great songs and vocals also!!!
John Boyles says:
Whoa, this guys rocks! Well, not exactly rocks, but rolls with excellent, inventive fingerpicking and songwriting. You must record more, your fans demand it!!
Mark Steven Brocke says:
Hey Chris, excellent music, I'm loving listening to "At the speed of life" - Excellent musicianship, arrangments, everything! Your lyrics delve deep below the surface and really make me think. Keep up the good work and God bless your ministry!
Rick Phillips says:
Great guitar work!
Tom Abernethy says:
If you want to muse on some lyrics that take you to a new level of deeper thinking, enjoy yourself. Especially check out "On The Sea" on "At The Speed Of Life." If you've gone through trouble, God will talk to you through that song.
Lance Ayers says:
Wow, really amazing music! I love your style and technique
Lowell Adams says:
Track number three's refrain ask,what is the soul of man. That's easy. It is what is coming out of your hands and voice and resonates with my spirit. Sorry for being so dramatic, but this is real art that truely brings glory to God. Keep Serving,
Zac Collins says:
Watching Chris burn up the frets is an experience in itself only to be rivaled by his great lyrics. Best of all, Chris turns all the praise upward!
Jim Lowery says:
I'm Minister of Music at Chris' church and (without payment of ANY kind!) am very glad to commend him to anyone. He is a Christian of great faith, a musician of amazing skill and talent, a song writer of vision, and a human being of deep integrity. Several musicians at Immanuel Baptist Church have "open mic" privileges- and Chris, being a man under authority, is one of those at the head of the list! If you ever get to hear him perform "Three Penny Cantata" live, RUN to the venue. You'll not be disappointed, and you won't leave unchallenged spiritually or musically.
Willie Cee says:
Amazing acoustic stuff, man - Hanging on the Wind: a most ethereal prayer picture. Whole lotta chops here, we praise God for it!!
MyKey K says:
Chris Lucas has six strings of COOL BEANS for all to enjoy as his fingers dance throughout this land and ON THE SEA!
Keith@ Indieheaven says:
Chris, great having you with us! We wish you all the very bst!
