WHAT OUR LISTENERS SAY:
“What the Express offers is so good it’s scary … The 40-and-under crowd will love it, for as the band’s website says, “Lucas Haneman is an expressive and soulful guitarist with a sound that reaches beyond genres.” The blending of such is as seamless as the blending of this quartet’s vocals. Soaring harmonies are the real highlight of this album, so open your ears and enjoy.”
Blues Blast Magazine, August 5th, 2019
“Blasting through Canada like a zephyr with a mission, they know how to spread the party and keep it going all night long. Coming out of the box with a bunch of high level recognition, when they bring the party to your block, be sure to get on board.”

“I like Haneman’s acoustic work on Ms. McGrim, and in other places he leans back and roars. Lots of different feels across these tunes, something for every mood. It’s a record that doesn’t want you to sit down and rest, at least not for very long … Catch the Westbound is one of those albums that will have you saying “This is my favorite song… no, This one is. Wait; no, it’s definitely THIS track”, and I love that. The Lucas Haneman Express is a band that is acutely aware of their strengths, and this disc really puts you through the wringer- nicely done.”
″Music Reviews by the Rock Doctor″ April 22nd, 2019
“The Lucas Haneman Express has one of the freshest sounds I’ve heard in Years”
Dawg FM radio broadcast
“Lucas Haneman is the greatest guitarist I’ve ever worked with.”
“Music fans around Ottawa have been aware of Haneman’s prodigious ability for years, mostly from his work as a sideman with other artists, or his jazz-guitar gigs. The Express marks the birth of Haneman as the singer-songwriter-guitarist and frontman of his own band.”
"The overall tone and production values of “Welcome Aboard” are excellent, the whole album has a fresh feel and a sound defined by great vocals and world class musicianship. … It must be said that all around this band is full of spectacular talent.”
Dawg FM in Ottawa
“What continued to amaze me… was and is, Lucas’s depth — his depth as a musician and his depth as a person. … I guess when you think about it, one reflects the other.”
