As does his fellow artist, Sierra Ferrell, and he recently put his own spin on her song “West Virginia Waltz.”
From her 2021 debut album Long Time Coming, he noted in a video on Instagram that Nikki Lane recommended the song to him, and it’s one of his favorites at the moment:
“This is a song by Sierra Ferrell that I really like, it’s called the ‘West Virginia Waltz.’ It was brought to my attention by Nikki Lane, another good friends of ours.
And Sierra’s just a fantastic artist, and this is just a rudimentary version, this is a first verse and a chorus. But it’s called ‘West Virginia Waltz,’ y’all check her out.”
Lukas is a very talented artist, and definitely has touches of all sorts of genres in his music, from country to rock to blues, and I definitely think you can hear that come through even in this short, acoustic rendition.
I’d love to hear him cover the whole track, because it’s on of my favorites too:
“‘West Virginia Waltz’ by the talented @sierraelizabethferrell. Thank you for introducing me to this one, @nikkilane77.”
Sierra is a truly fantastic up-and-coming artist from Appalachia, so if you haven’t checked out her music yet, do yourself a favor and give it a listen.
I think we’re gonna need these two to hit the road on a tour together in 2023…
