If you'd like to commission a song, (especially a 'high ticket' one like Hold The Hope) please reach out at Lucas@LightningLucas.com or FivForZeero-746-ZeeroThreeeNine8 Leaving a review on Apple Music or Spotify is super helpful. Because I'm transitioning my catalog of music to the streaming services, I highly recommend that you click the link below and then click 'follow' to follow my music (not just my podcast) on Spotify https://open.spotify.com/artist/3pdwehvEdBUkRQgpqYOh8Y If you use a different streaming service app, you can open that app and search for 'Lightning Lucas' (no 'e' in Lightning, Lucas with a 'c') and 'follow' me there. Find the video version of the comedy episode at https://youtu.be/ujBEtc6iZDE The new albums are available on all the streaming services, just search 'Lightning Lucas Happy Early Birthday Jesus' for the lighthearted album, or 'Lightning Lucas Nothing Is Lacking' for the more serious album. (Or 'Lightning Lucas Before I Find Her' for the love song album.) 'Skyfinding' is not on the streaming services, but it is available on Bandcamp... here: https://lightninglucas.bandcamp.com/album/skyfinding Toward the end of a recent episode I mention the acronym (which I made up, but have yet to popularize) MAGIC... artists make MAGIC by Manufacturing Acceptable Gifts and Iterating Continually. A couple of notes from this episode. 1) The old song is called 'Consider the Lilies' not 'Lilies and Sparrows'... but you get the gist. 2) 'Consider the Lilies' says nothing about the hill which I mentioned in the episode... however, the man I greeted in the song lives on the hill, and the neighborhood I reference in the song is the hill neighborhood. 3) I want to be clear that I also believe that I have ostentatious wealth... so I try not to be judgmental, but the lyric from the chorus probably is literal. And of course... I'd love to have the financial backing of people on the hill... they're good people... life is complex.

These 6 mini songs (2 of which are featured today) were commissioned by a friend who wished to remain anonymous. The songs are for a supplement to her homeschool curriculum, which mostly focused on positive things about the United States. Opportunities to see me live include: Thursday, July 13, 2023 6:00 PMX2 Comedy Al Fresca Register Island Wing Company Grill & Bar - Harrisonburg More Importantly: Cave Fest: July 15 and 16 at Melrose Caverns. https://www.melrosecaverns.com/comedy Click that link, then click "Get tickets" ("Buy tickets is something else)... Then be sure to select 'Basement Comics' in order to see me. Most importantly; Save the evening of July 21st for a potluck followed by a concert by me, possibly with a comedy friend opening for me, and likely at the Hershberger Event Barn. 25% of the proceeds will go to NAMI for mental health research. Stay tuned for details.

Here are two weddings songs, one new and one old. My brother-in-law Yugo produced the first song and played all the instruments, although I wrote the lyrics and mixed and mastered it. Also, notably, the center section of the first song is a parody of the epic anti-war classic "The General" by Dispatch. Listen to it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdAlCXNPlCk The second song was a major group effort. The Nathan and Kaitlin Wedding Song is by: The Apostle Paul, Lightning Lucas, Jessica Sarriot, Rose Byler, Emma Stahl-Wert, Carmen Schrock-Hurst, and Caleb Schrock-Hurst. At the wedding, it was performed by Lightning Lucas, Jessica Sarriot, Rose Byler, Emma Stahl-Wert, Larisa Zehr, David Jost, Stewart Nafziger, and Caleb Schrock-Hurst. 10 years later we got almost everyone to submit a recording including Nathan and Kaitlin themselves, (THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR PARTICIPATING!)  I mixed it together and this is the result.  Hope you enjoyed it, and know that YOU TOO COULD COMMISSION ME TO WRITE A SONG FOR  YOU, simply email lucas@lightninglucas.com if you are interested...

Here's an episode I made purely for myself. If you like it too, that's just gravy, (as the saying goes). Here's the link I promised: https://lightninglucas.bandcamp.com/album/it-aint-me-babe-rough-cut Other than that, please be sure to check out the new website: HoldThatNote.net and also make sure you're subscribed to the show on your favorite podcast app. Blessings, Lucas --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/holdthatnote/message
Hold That Note is quite possibly going on a hiatus, however, I may start season 7 sooner rather than later. Also, I may repost some remastered episodes during the hiatus. Please make sure to go to Spotify or Apple Podcasts and 'follow' Hold That Note so that you find out when season 7 starts. Thanks especially to all you early listeners and patrons. When the show resumes hopefully we'll be able to create a petri dish effect. Best, Lucas 4/23/2023 --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/holdthatnote/message
Today features two songs about being down, but a lot of the talking is about the concept of 'staying conscious'... and also gratitude. Check out the new and improved LightningLucas.com or HoldThatNote.net Contact me to discuss your idea for a commissioned song: email: lucas@lightninglucas.com or call (fivforzeero)-746-0398 The passage I read today was from Eckhart Tolle's book "A New Earth"...

Here's another weird episode. It's my room cleaning ditty looped 6 times (which adds up to 10m49s)... if you want to skip this episode I won't be offended, but if your room needs more than 11 minutes of cleaning perhaps you'll play it more than once... haha. Hopefully I'll be back with something more usual next week! Today's call to action is to please subscribe on Spotify or Apple Podcasts so that you get notifications when the episodes drop. Have a great week! --Lucas-- --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/holdthatnote/message
A bit of a walk down memory lane. A different format (4 songs instead of 2). The new thing is a remastered version of a song you've never heard, which is about the desert Wadi Rum in Jordan. (Which was recently featured in Time Magazine) (the desert, not my song). I don't think I exactly put in a call to action this week, so the CTA is the same as last week: if you could/would, please rate or review this podcast on Apple or Spotify!

Today's episode features a new love song and an old love song. It also features some thoughts on more qoutes from Eckhart Tolle. It also features the better birthday song, sung for Jeremi's 9th birthday. (Ep 1 features the birthday song for Jeremi's 7th birthday)! See LightningLucas.com for most of the music, including the love song album which I mention in this episode, which is called "It ain't me babe, rough cut" The book I read from today is called 'A New Earth' Have a wonderful listening week and I'll see you next Friday for episode 100! --Lucas-- P.S.

Please subscribe on your favorite podcast app. Today I dabbled in the Bible.  I touched on Psalm 62, Luke 3:11, and the book of James.  I also featured a song that claims it doesn't matter if God exists because we are all just big stupid monkeys... so it's a weird episode =) Find these two songs at LightningLucas.com ...
