Feeling Lucky 

When did Canada become so damn American?

If musical talent can be inherited, Zachary Lucky is the Canadian equivalent of Hank Williams Jr. He's a Bobby Bare Jr., a Jeff Buckley, a Jacob Dylan, but in his case, the musical bug skipped a generation.

Grandson of Canadian country music legend Smiling Johnny Lucky, who the younger Lucky claims was the first musician to play gigs in the Arctic Circle and tour the northern Aboriginal reserves of Canada,. Zachary has the same rambling spirit and affinity for folk melody of his grandfather.

Lucky is known for his extensive touring of North America and at all of twenty-five years old, has released three EPs and three full-length albums, all of which radiate a folky, Americana melancholy.

His most recent release, 2013's The Ballad of Loosing You, is a heavy, meandering album that questions the fate of past lovers and delves into roughneck life on the road. Lucky's warm honey vocals spread across his rooted guitar picking ballads with the same ease of the meandering grasses on the Northern plains he sings about.

The album is littered with secrets whispered in bed, Townes Van Zandt references, half-empty bottles of Jim Beam, and sounds like it should be echoing from ancient vinyl under a stiff layer of dust.
