Megan Laurence and Lucas Haneman have been performing together for almost 4 years, bringing their own blend of unique song writing, intricate vocal harmonies, and a little something new to the blues genre. Together they recently won the Ottawa Blues Society's 2019 Road to Memphis competition, and will be competing in the "International Blues Challenge" in January 2020. Formed out of their main band, The Lucas Haneman Express, this duo was created as a way for the band to continue gaining exposure, while fitting within the constraints of more intimate venues and festivals. As an acoustic duo, Laurence and Haneman have been captivating crowds all around Ontario and Quebec, down in the United States and also over in London, England. The Lucas Haneman Express has opened for Robert Cray, Dave Matthews Band, John Butler Trio, the Downchild Blues Band and many others. They play both traditional and modern blues, with an acoustic edge and tight vocal harmonies, that earned them a nomination for a Maple Blues Award in 2018 for Best New Artist.
Laurence and Haneman recently recorded an acoustic duo album with Grammy award winning producer Rob Fraboni (The Stones/Clapton) and are currently in the works to finish and release these recordings later in 2019. Between Megan Laurence's angelic vocal delivery, Lucas haneman's extraordinary guitar prowess, and the electrifying presence that both bring to the stage as well as their song writing, this is a live show not to be missed!
