At the heart of Check With Lucy is the singer-songwriter duo of Jeff Libman and Brad Cole. Since meeting at Chicago's famed Old Town School of Folk Music a decade ago, these prolific songwriters have been performing together in various bands and incarnations, from neighborhood busking to large theatre venues. With roots in pop, folk, soul and Americana, Check With Lucy creates an infectious up-tempo new folk sound. The backbone of the project is the duo's catchy and poignant songwriting. With hints of James Taylor, Jeff Tweedy, Jackson Browne and John Hiatt, Check With Lucy performs as an acoustic twosome or with a full backing band. Fans at their live shows rave about Check With Lucy's engaging, high energy stage presence. Throw out your expectations of what it means to be the audience—there are no walls between these performers and the crowd, which makes their shows personal, and full of the signature Check With Lucy vibe.
