Lucas Ward of Silver Snails talks with Inessa / Audio

By INESSA // Lucas Ward: The Tales of The Silver Snails...Opening the human heart

Self described “economic migrant” Lucas Ward, has been planting his West Coast feet in Portland during these late spring weeks of 2019. There’s a new album to pull together, some shows to play, and introductions to be made as we get to know the global and local heroics of The Silver Snails.

The first album The 7 Melodies, has just been re-released to introduce it to a new global audience. Now comes a new album in the works, here in Portland. Hopeful for a 2020 release. The net that Lucas and his wife and partner in musical and artistic travel  have chosen to throw, is very wide, indeed.

The story of how Elisa and Lucas met. How he ended up a nationalized Italian citizen. How The Silver Snails came to be. How Portland is still a destination point.

These and other bits of a life so well and deeply lived? Some of the mysteries are revealed in my conversation with Lucas. Others will come by listening to the music. Beginning with the debut album and to be supplemented by going to live shows. Check for the June shows HERE.

And my conversation with Lucas is here for you to enjoy. A couple of live songs, unplugged, and one from the rerelease so you can hear what it’s ALL about. Lucas is in the middle of sharing a bit of the new baby, the work of art, and taking out time to celebrate.
