LABEL: INDEPENDENT GENRE: JAZZ, BOSSA NOVA ORIGIN: FRANCE/VENEZUELA THINK: BAD BAD NOT GOOD MEETS PACO DE LUCIA
At age 24, Lucas Mariani has already astounded a small group of music fans with his prolific and wildly varied output. Each incarnation of his musical universe a detailed and rich world with its own codes.
It all started at age 19, where he met the band Babe Rainbow through french indie darlings La Femme. Striking an immediate connection, Mariani was invited to join the band on tour, and from there went on to co-compose and co-produce Babe Rainbow's last three albums.
In 2019, after three years on tour based out of mythical Byron Bay, Mariani moved back to Paris. He has since focused on creating a steady stream of solo work, releasing six EP's in 18 months. His immense talent exercised through three alias's; Domingo Mariani, Maria Benz (both solo acts) and his band Madone, with which he shall release a first LP in 2021.
Depending on which version of Mariani you may encounter, one may Think Bad Bad Not Good meets Rodrigo Amarante, Frank Ocean meets Francis & the Lights, or Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin's kid grew up to be in 2020.
