Originally from the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina but currently living between LA, NYC and Washington, DC; Lucaa (she/they) is the brainchild of singer/producer Stepha, who is a 2 spirit Afro-Indigenous artist from A Ni Sa Ho Ni (Cherokee - Blue/Medicine) clan and Arapaho ancestry. Formerly half of the duo ‘Uruguay’, Lucaa’s genre-bending indie/alt-pop brand of music features raw and deceptively deep songwriting that pulls from their experiences as a young model in NYC, and being a queer BIPOC artist.  

At a young age, Lucaa remembers listening to their father (who was a backup singer for Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind and Fire, and Michael Jackson) and mother (a trained opera singer) singing around the house. Now, Lucaa takes a grungier approach to alt-pop, with influences harnessed from Radiohead, Billie Eilish, Willow, girl in red, and Phoebe Bridgers. With organic production led by Stepha’s natural intuition and vocals reminiscent of a lullaby, Lucaa’s brand of raw and emotive music is an expression of both their innerworkings and their culture.

Lucaa has always infused fashion and music into their art, shining a light on the two-spirit indigenous experience within the queer community and beyond. Working closely with their community to bring indigenous representation and visibility to the music industry, they have partnered with some of the largest indigenous brands and change-makers (Notorious CreeThunder VoiceGinewNDN Girl Book ClubEMME Studio). They are also an ambassador for sustainable art wear brand 4KINSHIP’s Indigenous Futures Fund, which supports and amplifies the voices and art of young, up-and-coming indigenous creatives.

Lucaa's career is growing quickly. In just a few months they have been confirmed as an official SXSW showcasing artist, shot an international branding campaign for Leica, collaborated with Grammy-nominated producer Rob Kleiner (Labrinth, Billie Eilish, Euphoria soundtrack), and their music has been featured on national Cable Television (CBS’s 'FBI’) and One's To Watch. Lucaa also played the We Found New Music showcase in LA which helped launch Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa and Sigrid's careers.

“...about to become a household name that you will not soon forget.” -Paste

“Stepha's vocals are deceitfully soulful, brimming with emotion but only ones that appear to have been hardened over time. She carries the tune effortlessly, without affectation, almost like a specter.” -The Deli Magazine 

"Showcasing soulful vocals gliding atop eclectic instrumentation, you can feel the magnetic spark of excitement as they finally discover the underlying charm on the city of angels." -Earmilk

"An escape from the haze." -Ladygunn
