Spotted: Lucas Laufen – Heaven on the Hill
Today I’m presenting you with the track Heaven on the Hill by the Australian composer and piano player Lucas Laufen, living in the small fishing town Port Lincoln. Lucas comes from a background playing classical piano and later went on to play jazz trumpet and eventually ended up in different kinds of rock bands. Now he’s back in the neo classical genre and is usually traveling through Europe doing live shows.
This track was released on the EP with the same name as the track on the 14th of January, 2022. It will also be on an upcoming album.
Tell us something about your track Heaven on the Hill!
The song started out as a folk song on acoustic guitar with lyrics about my hometown in South Australia. I was trying to add piano to the arrangement and ended up stripping the whole original song to just the piano part. I tried to tell the story of the song again without words and it ended up as a solo piano instrumental.
Thank you very much for sending this in Lucas!
