L Wilkins / Bio

I am a grandson of the delta blues. My grandfather , Robert Wilkins Jr. passed it down to his sons and daughters. My father passed it down to my brothers and I. We took it to different places. The Wilkins
family have a proud musical legacy. We love music. Fathers, mothers , aunts , uncles & cousins are vastly talented and creative in many art forms. I love making music . The LCX tapes are many textures of many genres and "ideas" as a one man show. I can only blame myself. It's all good. I just play the stuff, don't ask me to explain my ideas or my techniques. Just whatever sounds cool at the moment and work with it. And move on. New ground. I'm a journeyman more than I am a virtuouso and a simpleton more than a prodigy. I love to perform live whenever possible.. The LCX project is a hybrid mosaic. Don't put a label on me. It's just original demo garage stuff. Influences? Dad, Hendrix, Moore, Zappa, Osbourne, Clapton, Marley, Schenker, Vai, Cray, Guy, Mayfield, Brown, Johnson and Son House. I love Jane's Addiction, Lightnin' Hopkins, Skip James, Goodie Mobb, Led Zeppelin, Hendrix, The Cure, Jay-Z, David Bowie, Boolou, The Police, Radiohead, Living Colour, Thin Lizzy, Deftones, Buddy Guy, Son House and still am in awe over anything done by John Coltrane. Johnny Cash lives and everything remotely heavy owes it to him. I was raised in Tacoma Wa and I love it here. I have played most of the major clubs in and around the sound for the past 20 yrs. I've recorded professionally with several groups from metal to gospel music and am always available as a hired gun. I play a customized yamaha pacifica112 through my dad's old peavey amp. My music is written and recorded with very basic equipment during on the fly low tech improvisation. My songs are all one take stuff recorded on a small digital 8 track recorder. My sound is basic, unique, sometimes heavy, organic and unrefined. I love God and my family. All music performed and written by yours truly. With the exception of Osibesa on "Untitled". Thanx for dialing in. Peace and Blessings always, L
