Flamenco-inspired pop duo Andy & Lucas (Andr+¬s Morales and Lucas Gonz+ílez) first knew each other as neighbors and friends in their Cadiz neighborhood of La Laguna. The boys went to school together from the first grade on, deciding to form a musical group early on in their friendship. At the age of 12, Morales began writing songs, which he began to perform with Gonz+ílez in bars around Cadiz by the time they were 16. The duo made their recording industry debut four years later with the release of Andy & Lucas, produced by the Argentine-born Alejo Stivel. The disc went on to sell better than 200,000 units, staying at the top of national charts for a number of weeks. The hit song "Son de Amores" captured the attention of Spanish audiences, achieving double-platinum status. The longtime friends soon released a live in-concert DVD, a recording of their first large-scale concert, held in Barcelona. The production, entitled [RoviLink="VR"]Viviendo un Sueno, helped Morales and Gonz+ílez win their first major award, a Premio Onda for Best New Artist. Their next studio record came some years later in 2007. Ganas de Vivir embraced a more pop-oriented sound that earlier projects, landing a spot on Billboard's European Top 100. They released their fourth record Con Los Pies en la Tierra, which was produced by renowned Spanish producer Jos+¬ Ram+¦n Florez (Fey, Hugo, Sergio Rivero). The duo returned in 2010 with Pido la Palabra which features guest vocalist Diana Navarro on the centerpiece title track. ~ Evan C. GutierrezPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
