Luc and the Lovingtons is an original Pop-World-Reggae band with some spices of hip-hop and Soul. An emerging Seattle band with contagious energy and warmth, the Lovingtons bring back the spirit of the days of Motown when singing about love, joy and happiness rang true. The Lovingtons are a classy and youthful group who bring a powerhouse of vocal harmonies over a rich soul groove. A charismatic and energetic performer, Luc leads the group through a set of songs created with lyrics that channel the introspection and empowerment of artists like Stevie Wonder and India Arie. Luc brings a natural light and joy that is infectious, leaving everyone smiling.
With a tour to Chile-South America in 2009-2010 under their belt and a Music-video, made in Chile, coming up on March 2010, this band has wasted no time when spreading their powerful message and good music is the goal.
Luc & the Lovingtons’ music has inspired many people around the world. Among them the great artist Jason Mraz which is already covering one of their songs- The Freedom Song.
“ Reynaud and crew are dedicatedly telling stories of those lands far away. Reynaud sings the joy of life in Africa- a sharp contrast to what many of us hear on the news. Perhaps the disc’s best tune, “Freedom Song” was recorded two years earlier at a refuge for Hurricane Katrina victims in Baton Rouge, LA. As Reynaud’s playful guitar strumming matched with the harmonizing of children from the shelter, the healing power of music practically jump through the speakers.”
