Uncle Lucius Frontman Kevin Galloway Talks About Their Return
Jul 04, 2024 Episode 43
With Hosts Lee Zimmerman and Billy Hubbard

Passion and persistence are key traits when it comes to finding success in today’s music realms. The band that goes by the name Uncle Lucius took that fact to heart after going on hiatus in 2018 and regrouping five years later.

“We started getting this thing rolling in late 2005,” lead singer and songwriter Kevin Galloway tells Lee and Billy . “We put out our first album in 2006 and we had a great run through the year 2018. I set the band down and I said ‘You know what, I just think it's time to move on for 100 different reasons.’ And we talked about it in an amicable way and did like a seven month farewell thing. And then we dropped the mic in March of 2018 and moved on. I moved on to some solo things. The guys in the band were doing different projects and living different lives.”

Nevertheless, as Galloway tells it, fate had other ideas in store. Three years after the band broke up, one of their songs, “Keep the Wolves Away,” which they had released in 2012, was tapped for the hit series “Yellowstone.” That turned the spotlight back on the band and eventually led them to reconsider their earlier decision and regroup.
