Lucas Sousa was born in Recife, Brazil, where he then moved to the U.S. at the age of 6 and learned to speak English. He began singing in middle school in the school's choir and started playing guitar as a sophomore in high school. Shortly after, at the age of 15, Lucas played his first show at the Freddie Power's picking party. Loving the excitement of performing, he started a band a few weeks after that show. Since then, Lucas has played around 100 shows a year throughout the Austin area. Aside from music, Lucas attends Blinn College in Bryan, Texas, where he studies Ag Economics.
