8th sold-out back-to-back Stageit show Jan. 28, 2022, for the infectious sounds of Lukas Rossi.
Tonight, was another magical Friday night spent indulging in the infectious sounds inside the 8th sold-out back to back virtual www.stageit.com concert with no other than internationally acclaimed, multi-award winning, Gold and Platinum-selling frontman, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, mixer/master, vocal coach, producer, and former star of CBS Television reality series turned frontman of Rock Star Supernova, Toronto born, Lukas Rossi. Rockin loud and proud from his Nashville studio as he was joined this week by 19-year-old singer/songwriter Sunnie Days and guitarist accompaniment of Jondie Davis.
Lukas acoustically hypnotized the all-aged sold-out StageIt room mashing together an in-depth catalog of his originals with the creme de la creme selection of covers that truly engaged our senses, and encompassed his versatility. Kicking the night off in high gear with a song he co-wrote with Sunnie Days called Paper Heart, off the newest album, Autonomic, setting the tone for this night of Evolution.
It has been way too long since I truly was captured and taken deep inside an artist’s realm and tonight was one of those rare nights. I closed my eyes, felt Lukas’s words as they entranced my soul, what a feeling being covered head to toe in goosebumps, nothing like it.
His display this evening was nothing short of evocatively haunting, and remarkably emotional, as he began to tear up at one point. His creative songs are extraordinary and like a fine wine, his depth and warmth are getting more gob-smacking with every taste, leaving me awestruck by such a stellar talent beyond his years. He captivatingly painted pictures with every strum, a true storytelling genius who shared his sensitive and attractive heart in every intricate piece he perfected. His expressive hunger revealed images and symbolic intent as he reflected his life back through us with simplicity and truth, all inside his impressively executed and rich infused flavor.
Well into the 3rd millennium, Lukas still exudes addictive adrenaline and I was thrilled to be a part of the impressive audience’s responsive energy once again.
I appreciate Lukas’s hard work, creatively unique dedication and musical drive, why, take his spontaneous and outstanding video creation in support of his fellow Canadians and their beloved Truckers in it’s Freedom Convoy yesterday, expressing his love through a thrilling cover rendition of Neil Young’s hit Rockin In The Free World, https://m.facebook.com/watch/?v=523231898889620&extid=CL-UNK-UNK-UNK-AN_GK0T-GK1C&ref=sharing and for these reasons alone, represents why this global phenomenon is still an iconic staple upon today’s music scene. He is constantly creating in one facet or musical form, and I truly look forward to seeing where this explosive talent’s adventures take him next.

FYI DID YOU KNOW? –
Lukas Rossi’s new album “Autonomic” is available now! Download it directly or on any of your favorite Digital Stores / Streaming Platforms — or BOTH visit http://www.lukasrossimusic.com
Throughout the years of touring, meeting fans, collaborating, and self-reflection, the urge to do more with his music is higher than ever. “Autonomic” is a record influenced by an “Invisible Illness” called Dysautonomia. This is a condition that compromises a person’s nervous system, impacting almost all areas of their body — all the while looking like healthy people. Lukas recently joined Seventy7 Records. The owner, Amanda Nail’s daughter, Lexi Nail (Seen on Autonomic’s album cover) was diagnosed with Dysautonomia as a teenager. Featured artist ‘Matty Shreds’ also suffers from this condition. After learning how crippling this illness is, Lukas took immediate action to help join those raising awareness. In addition, a portion of the album sales will go to Dysautonomia International, a charity that funds research on Dysautonomia and provides resources for people living with the condition.
The record features many great artists: Dave Buckner (Papa Roach), Marcos Curiel (P.O.D.), Matty Shreds, Sunnie Days, (Solo Artists), and Stereo Satellite! This is just the start of many big things to come!
In 2022, huge collaborations are in the works. Lukas Co-Wrote & is being featured on “Three Days Grace” upcoming record “Explosions”. “Autonomic is special. I’ve stayed active throughout the lockdowns and wrote from places inside of me that I haven’t visited in a very long time. This record includes the most personal songs I’ve ever written, some that I’ve been hanging onto for the right moment. That time is now.” – Lukas Rossi .
