Tony Lucca, Jay Nash and Matt Duke (TFDI) will groove upstairs at the World Cafe Live in Philadelphia on Saturday.
It all started in the early fall of 2009, Tony Lucca and Jay Nash co-headlined a tour featuring Matt Duke as support.
The bromance was set into motion. Early in the tour, the three recognized they had great musical chemistry with their three-part harmony and different, yet complementary, approaches to guitar.
On Sept. 9, 2009, The trio recorded four songs in an impromptu session at SPACE in Evanston, Ill.
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 No. 1 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart and stayed there for weeks.
That EP has sold nearly 30,000 digital copies to date.
TFDI 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 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.
“Beggars and Ballers” is due out April 7th. Pre-order the album on iTunes.
