TFDI$12 - $18
It all started early fall 2009, Tony Lucca & Jay Nash co-headlined a tour which featured Matt Duke as support. The bromance was set into motion. Early in the tour, the three recognized that they had great musical chemistry with their three part harmony and different, yet complementary approaches to guitar.
On a day off, 09/09/09, to be exact Lucca, Nash and Duke recorded four songs in an impromptu session at SPACE in Evanston, IL. Upon hearing those recordings, management and Rykodisc almost immediately put a plan together to release them as a four song EP. Two months later, the TFDI EP was released and quickly rose to number 1 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart and stayed there for weeks. That EP has sold nearly 30,000 digital copies to date. Tony Lucca, Jay Nash and Matt Duke joined forces again in 2010 for a national tour that was largely sold out, and wrote and recorded the TFDI full length When I Stop Running.
That tour schedule was cut short by Tony Lucca’s success on The Voice. In 2016, TFDI played together again for the first time in five years and decided that they needed to record more music together. Beggars & Ballers is TFDI’s first release in nearly six years.
