Lucid Fly founders Nikki Layne and Doug Mecca joined forces in Orlando, Florida in 2001. On the hunt for the perfect name, a friend stumbled over an old newspaper with a headline that read “Lucid Flies Into The Record Book”, featuring an article on astronaut Shannon Lucid, who had broken the record for the longest duration in space by an American, as well as by a female. From that headline, Lucid Fly was born. The band exploded onto the Orlando music scene and quickly gained a large and devoted following. 2005 saw the release of their debut EP, Adapting To Gravity.After playing venues all over Florida and the southeast 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 bassist Go Nakabayashi, who quit a successful, signed band in Japan to pursue his dream of making it in the US. In 2007, the band released a second EP titled “The Escape Stage” which has received stellar feedback and has also continued to grab audiences attention and widen their fan base.Most recently, they have been working on new material for their upcoming full length album.
The word is spreading, and their mission has only begun...stay tuned!!
