Sometimes you feel like you’re floating up in the air and looking down on yourself, out of body and out of sorts, self-critical, letting others take the lead, and not living up to your full potential. Instead you should be flying high and proud; soaring across time and space and feeling the sun. In this musical exploration of how we set our own rules, composer Lucas Brown wrestles with the demons we all face, and finds out how to go beyond the limitations and boundaries of self-doubt.

Who is Lucas?
Known to many throughout the Jazz world as an organist, Lucas Brown is a performing artist, composer and educator. He actively performs both Jazz and Classical music and has performed around the US at such venues as Carnegie Hall, the Kimmel Center, the Smithsonian Museum, the Jazz Standard, and the Blue Note.
