Lukas Rossi is on a rhythmical roll.
Friday, February 18th, 2022, marked the 85th Lukas Rossi live Stageit performance, joined by Jondie Davis at Lukas Rossi’s Nashville-based studio.
Lukas Rossi is a one-of-a-kind artist and his sound never gets old. I have honorably witnessed 3 back to back weekly performances this year, and let me tell ya, he reminds me of another artist I adore, Dave Matthews. What I mean is, Lukas, like Dave, truly shocks me as he includes a setlist, but, each show is rare and unique from the last. Even with 27-years of hits under his belt, Lukas’s songs are never played the same twice, always different every single time. where he gets to stretch his 7+ vocal octave talents beautifully. He hasn’t lost his touch regarding his piercing falsetto and he definitely hit some stratospheric proportions.
I love that he constantly recreates and evolves, never a dull moment in his performances. Adding in nonstop humor in his passionate sets, definitely making this a stellar crowd-pleasing evening laced with notable favorites from his colorful repertoire.
The worldwide pandemic has not slowed Lukas down one bit, never truly idle, he has always got his hands deep inside a music project of his own, or a collaboration, say with Peterborough’s own Three Days Grace. TDG just debuted their newest release, Neurotic, from their new album EXPLOSIONS, which comes out May 6th, 2022, pre-save/pre-order it now: https://smarturl.it/3DGExplosions Visit https://threedaysgrace.com
FYI, Neurotic, is an infectious oldie but a goodie, as it was created and released back in 2016 for King City, a side project that featured the iconic introspective delights of Three Days Grace drummer and Peterborough native, Neil Sanderson, with Lukas Rossi (Rockstar Supernova fame). You can check out both versions of Neurotic on youtube:

Truly amazing things have occurred as a resourceful outcome for many during this worldwide pandemic, seeing artists grow and project their art in one facet or form, as they seek unique ways of staying in touch with their fans base by performing virtually which has many advantages, like no travel or hotel costs, no major overhead or weather to be concerned with ect. Platforms like http://Stageit.com allow the artist and fans to congregate via the comfort of their studio and/or home where they enjoy music together inside a beautiful up close and personal experience, where they reach an audience from all around the globe in 1 location. This week’s Rossi Posse gathered from as far away as New Zealand.
Passion oozed from every pore as Lukas blended in fan-favorite cover renditions while expressively merging his own classic originals right into surprising fans with a 1st-time glance at another brand new tune that he closed the night with entitled Perfect World, thus continually adding to his impressively deep collection of arrows from within his quiver.
At his shows, the skies the limit, where he shares a talent like no other with his in-depth and sometimes improvisational style giving us enthusiastic songs that encompass most of his flavored career, as he gets to dive back and forth inside acoustic pop sounds straight into alternative rock blends melding in a sense of the blues flare on another new piece entitled 8-track, then he delves back into rock-infused tunes, priceless. This show engulfed my senses and titillated my heart while tripping my mind to melt as his surprises were never-ending. His exquisite display of strength convincingly and accurately breaks down all emotional boundaries giving us dynamically rich marbling that ensures inclusive tenderness as he sports his heart upon his sleeve, totally allowing my adrenaline to get pumped, Lukas, you never disappoint!!
You are one of the planet’s most energetic, unique, and creatively gifted songwriters, so natural, raw, and real, and your song catalog is a hearty treasured institution that will forever be celebrated for its moving and relatable material. Your poetic art is a mediation on the feelings of the human spirit that reveals and evokes an emotional response with each mysterious narrative and brilliant song conception.
Keep creating masterfully fascinating and charismatic songs that are generously decadent, freshly vibrant, and impressively deep to the core, showing us your electric persona that’s fueled with unending life, as you guide us by example and love without reservation, all powered by your hard work and enormous heart.
I am truly overwhelmed with gratitude and appreciation. Thanks so much for enriching my life and for including me once again as a small part of your dedicated Rossi Posse family.

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!
“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.
