"[Lucas] is a vivid storyteller, a beautiful guitarist with a voice that grabs you and stays with you in your sleep. He writes and plays about the big stuff. He is deeply sincere. You leave his show enlightened and entranced, and with a sadness that you have on the last page of your favorite novel.” - Ruth Gerson Recording Artist Award Winning Songwriter/Vocal Coach

Creative Compound, 630 Main Street, Honesdale, PA

I’ll be playing at a brand new venue that’s just opened up In Honesdale, PA called the Creative Compound (630 Main Street) run by the very kind and talented Louis West. I’ll be doing two Sunday brunch shows there this summer: One on July 17 from 10:30-12:30pm And the second on August 14 from 10:30-12:30pm. Hope you can join us!

Lucas Maehara Rotman: An All-American Story

Listen to my interview on the Janus Adams show/podcast. Janus is an Emmy Award-winning journalist, historian, entrepreneur, and bestselling author. We discussed my family history and its broader context around race and social justice in the U.S. I shared letters written from my grandfather, a Japanese American soldier who served in the 442nd brigade in WWII, to my mom who was a toddler at the time. Interspersed will be some of my original songs.
