Who Is Fancy
Who Is Fancy
You might just feel like you can do anything after you hear Who Is Fancy’s major label debut single, "Goodbye," and that's the whole point. It's woven into the very fabric of his music. Everything comes back to his message of personal freedom and empowerment.

Growing up in the tiny town of Bentonville, AK, Fancy always felt different. Saying that he didn't fit in at high school would be an understatement. As a result, the bullying became so bad that his parents allowed him to quit at 17-years-old and pursue his dream of music in Nashville, TN.

It was in "Music City" that Fancy was born. "They started calling me Fancy," he recalls. "It was the first time I could identify with something that was unique and individual for me." Three sold out shows based off word-of-mouth alone led to a Big Machine publishing deal that sent him to Los Angeles where he linked up with super producer Dr. Luke's Prescription Music. His trip to Los Angeles also landed him in the office of acclaimed talent manager Scooter Braun who signed him to management and his SchoolBoy Records.

At the start of 2015, Big Machine C.E.O. and founder Scott Borchetta tweeted the link to "Goodbye." There would be no pictures or information revealed. The world knew nothing about the voice behind the song. "Goodbye" went viral with praise from the likes of Meghan Trainor and Kacey Musgraves. Nobody knew his identity, but Fancy's message through "Goodbye" was clear and strong.

Even following his dramatic reveal on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, Fancy remains true to his message. “Fancy means freedom," he leaves off. "Everyone is Fancy. I want this to be a moment for people to see it’s okay to be you. This isn't about me or who's singing: it's about how the music makes you feel."

Born in PA then raised on a Christmas tree farm in Maryland, self-taught artist Lukr began playing music as a kid beginning on an $80 piano. After forming and fronting his first band Farewell Flight at 17, he led them on dozens of successful DIY coast-to-coast tours in the US, playing hundreds of shows before relocating to Nashville, TN.

Working behind-the-scenes with artists from LA, NY, and abroad, he co-wrote songs that have appeared in TV shows like Scream, Hart of Dixie, Longmire, as well as in worldwide television ads. In 2016, he independently made his solo debut with the cinematic Fucked Up Summer. Finding its way to fans from around the globe, the song became a Spotify viral hit and passed a million streams in just 12 weeks. In August, he followed up with Scarecrow, a sophomore single that has since broken 3 million spins.

Self-styled as "neon grunge pop", Lukr's uniquely textured vocal and instantly nostalgic lyrics weave among organic instruments and shimmering sample-based pop tracks. The visually compelling live presentation features Lukr leading multiple co-creators, playing a what looks like creative musical chairs as they trade on and off with synths, guitars, trap sets and drum machines. Having released both a video for Scarecrow and a remix for Fucked Up Summer in the fall, he rounded out the year with a cover of a favorite song, Counting Crows’ A Long December. 2017 finds Lukr preparing to release a deluge of music with a series of mixtapes.
