However, when a band of extraordinary talent began forming around Lucas, and KFOG radio began playing the Shamblers' "All Good People" from the station’s most recent annual Local Scene CD Vol. 6 where it was featured, it was decided to stay planted in the Bay Area’s vibrant music scene.

Ward of Monsters of Folk, Rhodes, and other successful artists who have migrated to larger markets in order to build their music careers.
