Jamaica influenced pop singer Lucas DiPasquale unveils his newest single “Pager”

Jamaican influenced pop singer Lucas DiPasquale unveils his newest single, “Pager,” the first offering from his debut full-length album. “A

non-conventional pop artist,” (Artist Direct) on his newest track, “Pager,” Lucas reminds fans why they fell

in love with him in the first place. Complete with his unique patois sound and his acoustic guitar in hand,

Lucas reflects on the importance of staying connected. Half written while he was in college and then

completed during a visit to Jamaica, Lucas explained, “I’m really paging everyone to remind them of their

responsibilities.”

One of Spotify’s Spotlight Artists for 2016, as well as a Tidal Discovery Artist, Lucas’ stock has continued

to rise since his debut over a year ago. His energy-pumping dancehall single, “Do It Like,” racked up over

400K views on YouTube and it reached #1 on the Urban Music Charts in the UK. His nostalgic

coming-of-age video for single, “Speech,” has quickly surpassed 100K views since its April release. With

over 1 million streams on Spotify and 1.5 million views across his Youtube channel, Lucas has gained a

tremendous following as he proves that he “has more to offer listeners than just a convincing Jamaican

accent” (Noisey)

In 2014, Lucas became an overnight success when his acoustic mashup of songs by the Jamaican artist

Popcaan went viral. Popcaan and him went on to share the hit track, “No Talking,” and Lucas has gone on

to collaborate with various dancehall heavyweights, including Stylo G, Kardinal Offishall, Konshens and

Assassin. For his debut EP, Post Secondary, which was released on Oct. 9, 2015, Lucas teamed up with

Universal Music Canada. Produced by Stephen McGregor (Sean Paul, Bounty Killer) and Mojam (Sam

Smith, Emeli Sande), the album was recorded at the infamous Tuff Gong Studios in Jamaica, as well as in

Toronto and London.

Lucas has been featured by notable press, including Buzzfeed, The Guardian and The FADER, and he has

made appearances worldwide, with performances at Dream Weekend (Negril, JA), Reggae Fest (Toronto,

CA), Nothing Goes (New York, NY) and Notting Hill Carnival (London, UK). In March, Lucas performed at

SXSW Official Showcase in Austin, which garnered him significant visibility with Complex and

ATypicalSounds, among others.

Setting the tone for his upcoming music with the radio-friendly track, “Pager,” Lucas is ready to showcase

his growing ability as a songwriter. Stay tuned for more exclusives.
