Lucas Arnau was born in Medellin, Columbia on 16 May 1979. Ever since he was a young boy, Lucas loved music thanks to his father, Michel Arnau, who was a singer. He taught his son to play the guitar and enjoy music. Lucas’s mother Maria Teresa Fernandez worked in an advertising agency and enjoyed music as well. She tried to teach her son to be creative.
Lucas wrote his first song when he was still in middle school. When the boy turned 11 years old, parents sent him to the United States to study. In the USA, Arnau studied in school and took music lessons. Two years later, he returned to Columbia to finish high school. Back then, the talented boy performed at different school-related events.
When Lucas finished high school, he enrolled at the University of California, where he studied film production. That’s when his music career took off. To the USA, Lucas took his guitar, a player and a disc with his father’s songs. This set of mementos wasn’t just a way to remember his home. It pushed the young man to write his own songs.
