Lucky Sonne


Lucky Sonne can fill and kill any bill. Lucky Luke can steal show solo or w/ any and all members of band in tow. Café, cabaret, rock show, rodeo, stadium, arcade, circus or parade, it would be in your very best interest to allow us the opportunity to grace your stage. “High energy, wire tight open spaced roots rock with a boozy punk edge…” Mike Bell, Calgary Herald. Expect the best in original song and the thrilling delivery thereof, as well as spontaneity, humility, magnetism, humour, personality and charm in abundance. Noteworthy shows past include Old Macdonald’s Farm Festival (2017), Studio Bell Evening w/the Entrepreneurs (2017), National Music Centre/King Eddy Calgary Stampede (2016) Lilacfest (2013, 2017) Transcanada Music Series/Alberta Sessions (2010, 2015), Calgary Exhibition and Stampede Weadickville Sound Stage-3 sets per day/10 days (2013).
Lucky Sonne is a genuine underground Calgary band, the prophet pioneers of the northwestern alternative indie folk style: indelible, underrated, enduring, and undeniably influential. Of their four stand-out, ground-breaking and highly acclaimed albums spanning a decade, latest effort is perhaps their most well received and accessible, peaking at #3 on the Earshot National Folk/Roots/Blues charts in January, 2015, and earning a nod in Mike Bell’s Top 5 Calgary releases of 2016.

…Frontman and songwriter Luke Colborne blends exquisite, intelligent, sardonic wordplay and meandering melody to perfection. He simultaneously pays great tribute to alt country, folk rock and Americana greats past and present, while showcasing an effortless adeptness to handle the ragged reigns of a cocksure stallion with a punk rock and roll soul. “…you can’t bloody well take your bloody eyes off the guy…” Anonymous Brit. Four albums; hundreds of shows; an adoring and loyal international fan base, Lucky Sonne remains a fierce and mysterious force in the national underground indie folk-rock and alt-country cosmos; the embodiment of distant stars.
