Lucid Fly founders Nikki Layne and Doug Mecca joined forces in Florida in 2001. On the hunt for the perfect name, they stumbled over an old newspaper featuring an article on American astronaut Shannon Lucid, who had set a new world record for a woman spending 188 days in space. The headline "Lucid Flies Into The Record Book" stuck, and Lucid Fly was born. The band quickly gained a devoted following in Orlando's music scene. 2005 saw the release of their debut EP, Adapting To Gravity, and the fan community kept growing.
After playing venues throughout the southeast, singer Nikki and guitarist Doug decided it was time to head out to California to win over the West Coast. In L.A., they teamed up with bassist Go Nakabayashi, who quit a successful, signed band in Japan to pursue his dream of making it in the US.
Lucid Fly's songwriting is more powerful than ever ... resulting in the recent release of their second EP, The Escape Stage.
