ABOUT LUKAS ROSSI

How He Got Here

Lukas Rossi has proven that his vocal talents reach well beyond the “Mercury meets Buckley” comparisons offered by the general media. His vocal gift spans seven octaves (“and one half note”) from a deep guttural baritone to soaring soprano riffs. His songwriting and stagecraft has gained recognition from the industry as well as the general public.
Lukas has written and performed a remarkable number of songs during his 17 year career. His catalog encompasses a full range of genre from acoustic ballads to heart-wrenching tirades of pain and powerful musical statements about the state of today’s world.
Before 2006, Lukas formed and fronted two bands in Canada. The first was Cleavage (1995-2005) with brothers, Jonathan and Bill Jamieson. In 2005 he partnered with Pulse Ultra’s guitarist, Dominic Cifarelli, and his friend, Jay Cianfrini, to form the band, Rise Electric in Montreal.
Lukas earned a publishing deal with EMI Music Canada in 2004 which covers many of the Cleavage tracks as well as all of the Rise Electric music and other songs recently submitted. Lukas Rossi has co-written and appeared with other well-known Canadian bands.
While Rise Electric was on hiatus in the spring of 2006, Lukas flew to LA to compete in the popular television show, Rock Star: Supernova, as an audition for a new band comprised of Tommy Lee (Motley Crue), Jason Newsted (Metallica), and Gilby Clark (Guns N’ Roses). His selection as lead singer of Rock Star Supernova earned Lukas a world tour of the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
After completing his tour, Lukas returned to LA to begin work on his own solo acoustic act. The Love and Lust EP was released in June 2007 and Lukas took to the road. After road testing dozens of new songs, Lukas decided it was time to form his latest band, Stars Down. Throughout the course of their musical union, the members of Lukas Rossi's bands have won over the hearts of music lovers from all walks of life. Performing at a variety of venues and making countless public appearances all the while recording new song versions, this talented Rock Band has earned the admiration and affection of critics and fans alike
No stranger to the stage and television, Lukas performed live at the 2006 Gemini awards, appeared on (and won) the CBS television series Rock Star: Supernova (9 million viewers in the US, another 9 million worldwide), as well as appearing on Ellen, Regis & Kelly, The Jimmy Kimmel Show, Entertainment Tonight, The Howard Stern Show, and ET Canada.
Lukas is a producer, songwriter, actor, vocal instructor and gives live performance stagecraft instruction. Get in touch to learn more about his musical expertise, repertoire, and performance rates.

Sutherland has record label
By KAREN BLISS -- For JAM! Music
Canadian actor Kiefer Sutherland, who was inducted into Canada's Walk Of Fame yesterday, is an avid music fan and guitar collector, who also co-owns Ironworks Music, in Silverlake, CA, which is more than just a recording studio.  "It's a label and a production company, and actually we do management, as well," says Sutherland, the star of the hit TV drama "24." "We take care of Lifehouse, which is on tour now and we just finished our tour here in Canada with another one of our artists named Rocco Deluca (Ironworks first signing)." Sutherland's partner is Illinois-born musician/producer Jude Cole, himself a recording artist with a handful of solo albums to his name. Sutherland, who has never recorded an album of his own, actually made a spoken-word appearance on "Joe" from Cole's 1995 album, "I Don't Know Why I Act This Way." The long-time friends built the studio from scratch in a historic ironworks foundry. It is decorated with more than two dozen of Sutherland's vintage and new Gibson guitars. They don't rent out the studio, rather bring in developing artists such as Australia's Ry Cumming. "We work in two facets," says Sutherland. "We either release a record on our own through independent distribution facility, like RED, otherwise we might shop a deal like we did with an artist like MoZella for Warner Brothers." While working in Toronto filming political thriller "The Sentinel" with Michael Douglas and Kim Basinger, the Los Angeles-based Sutherland -- who was born in the U.K. to Canadian acting parents Donald Sutherland and Shirley Douglas -- has been catching some local talent. Just two weeks ago, he took in a set at Clinton's by new EMI Music Publishing (Canada) signing Rise Electric, a rock band whose singer, Lukas Rossi, used to front Cleavage (which won best Canadian unsigned band honour at NXNE 2000). Was he scouting or there for pleasure? "Both," Sutherland says. "I love music. When I see a band that I think fits what we're trying to accomplish with the label, obviously I'll approach my partner. The Rise Electric show, he was fantastic. That's a fantastic band and I was just walking down the street and I heard them playing and I walked in."
Told that the band is unsigned and he chuckles. "I know. I have their information."
