Lucas Gillan

Growing up in Tucson, AZ with an evangelical pastor father and amateur drummer mother, Lucas Gillan latched on to music at an early age. His formative years were spent performing in settings as varied as possible in a city the size of Tucson. Getting his start by drumming in church, Gillan eventually became deeply involved in the city’s underground rock scene, playing both drums and guitar in punk, hardcore and indie rock groups for audiences of his peers. All the while, he remained devoted to the craft of jazz drumming, studying privately with local authority Fred Hayes, playing in city- wide youth jazz ensembles, frequenting the city’s weekly jam sessions, and eventually gigging professionally around town.
