Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, Lopez first held a guitar at the age of five. He owned his first axe at age eight. When he was 12 he moved with his family to Dallas, Texas where the local Deep Ellum influence took hold. The state of Texas is known for its fiery blues guitar players, and Lance Lopez’s furious fretboard mastery encapsulates that sound.
When most young men were working their first jobs in fast food or gas stations to pay for prom, Lopez was touring with iconic blues and soul artists including Johnnie Taylor, Lucky Peterson, and Buddy Miles. Wherever he went, and with whomever he played, Lopez drew influence.
Lopez’s newest album “Tell The Truth” is a rare beast, a well thought out blues rock record. In a genre which can become stiflingly repetitive, Lopez, along with producer Fabrizio Grossi, avoid the usual pitfalls by bringing to the forefront some elements too often found absent in so many youthful displays of six string exuberance common to the breed.
