Don’t let the name fool you - this San Diego punk-pop band has never relied on luck to get their music heard. Through hard work, internet savvy, dedicated fans, and word of mouth, Lucky 7 has generated buzz in their native California and abroad. The growth of a huge national and international fan base proves that Lucky 7 is a band with mass appeal that knows how to rock a crowd.
Known for their high-energy live shows, Lucky 7 combines the heavy guitar riffs of rock, the melodic vocals of pop, and the driving beats of punk. By meshing their musical influences - The Who, Face to Face, The Ramones, Jimmy Eat World, Green Day, Guns and Roses, and Elvis Costello - Lucky 7 has formed a type of California punk that takes the audiences not only into the mosh-pit but onto the dance floor as well.
This independent band has achieved astounding Internet success. When the popular download site, MP3.com, first launched on the Web, Lucky 7 saw an opportunity to get their music to their friends and fans. They hardly expected the amazing activity that followed. The first year on the site, Lucky 7's songs earned 3 million downloads on MP3.com, with 1 million downloads every year since. Several of Lucky 7's songs won recognition as "Best Alternative Song" on MP3.com, Yahoo Internet Life named Lucky 7 one of the "Top 5 Internet Bands" in 2001, and CNN World Beat featured Lucky 7 as a Top Internet Band in 1999.
With this momentum, Lucky 7 continued to do what they enjoy most, playing live. Their passion for performing provides the fuel for Lucky 7's non-stop touring schedule – they've played sold-out shows on the West Coast, and in Australia - where they co-headlined the Warped Tour Down-Under. After captivating the audience at the renowned Livid Festival, they were signed on the spot by Aussie label, Shock Records. Most recently, Lucky 7 toured the U.S. this summer on the Vans Warped Tour.
The band's new self-titled album was recorded at The Village Recording Studios in Hollywood with a top-notch production team that included Producer: Daniel Mendez (Lit, Eve 6) and Mastering Engineer: Bob Ludwig (Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones, Incubus). GRAMMY winning Mixing Engineer: Tom Lord-Alge (The Rolling Stones, Weezer, Dave Matthews, Sum 41) was initially scheduled to mix two of the album’s tracks, but became such a fan of the band’s sound that he opted to work on the entire album. With a new home on U.S. indie label, Omega Records (RED Distribution), Lucky 7 is preparing to take their new sound to an even larger world-wide audience.
