Artist Profile Back to All Artists

Lucas Secon – the artist, producer, songwriter, even poet – has spearheaded a succesful solo career since his 1994 album ‘Lucacentric’, which included the grammy-nominated single ‘Lucas With The Lid Off’. However not only has he had success as a solo artist, but has also played a significant part in over 20 million record sales around the world. He has worked with countless superstars, but perhaps the most impressive was his instrumental part in the launching of Notorious B.I.G.’s rapping career – Lucas was the man responsible for pointing Biggy in the direction of P Diddy.

Secon was born in Copenhagen, Denmark and played association football for FC Copenhagen’s youth team from age 6 to 16. He then played for Frem in Copenhagen but music ended up taking over. Secon spent his childhood between New York and Copenhagen, but also had periods living in Venice, Italy and London, England before settling in New York after graduating. He attended New York University where he majored in Psychology and Philosophy with a minor in Music Business.

Secon won Spin Magazine’s Golden Poets Award for his poem “The Ice Age” (out of 150,000 entrants), which became a song on To Rap My World Around You. His father Paul Secon co-wrote a song with Lucas called “Red, White and Blues”.

Lucas Secon was then signed to Uptown Records by Andre Harrell on which he released his debut album To Rap My World Around You.
In 1993 he signed with Atlantic Records and released his 1994 album, Lucacentric which made the Top 40 in over 10 countries around the world. Lucacentric included the hit single “Lucas With The Lid Off”, which peaked at #29 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The music video for his the single, directed by Michel Gondry, received a Grammy nomination 37th Annual Grammy Awards and a MTV Video Music Award nomination for Best Male Video in 1995. The video features a distinctive and memorable style, being shot in one take among a variety of different sets. The video for ‘Lucas With The Lid Off’ was voted #4 in an MTV list of the Best Videos of All-Time.

Secon has also had a significant DJ career. He started DJing as a 15 year old in Copenhagen and entered he Danish DMC World DJ Championships contest.

Creativity runs in Lucas’s family. His father, Paul Secon, is perhaps best known as the co-founder of Pottery Barn along with his brother Morris Secon. Paul also worked as a songwriter for Nat King Cole, The Ink Spots, and The Mills Brothers plus many more. His mother, Danish artist Berta Moltke, was the head of the Danish Academy of Arts for several years and has exhibited around the world for the last 35 years.

Following the release of Lucacentric, Secon’s focus switched to production and songwriting. He has been working in various Miloco Studios with engineer Pete Hoffman since April 2006.
