Vince Lujan has led his group, The Vince Lujan Project, through more than 12 years of recording and gigging around Texas, which is no small feat for a self-sustaining band.

Vince recently paid a visit to the KETR studios and talked with Matt Meinke about the Vince Lujan Project's current crowd funding effort for a forthcoming album, about the difficulties of sustaining an indie band in the current music scene, and more.

More about the Vince Lujan Project is available via their websiteClick here For information about the VLP crowd funded album.
