Lucas, who co-wrote “Grace” and “Mojo Pin,” says, “The music of Jeff and Tim Buckley is timeless and gracefully transcendental.” He and his ensemble, Gods and Monsters, will perform at the Australian shows, alongside Martha Wainwright, Casper Clausen of Danish rock band Efterklang, NYC singer-songwriter Willy Mason, Irish singer Camille O’Sullivan, Steve Kilbey of The Church and Canadian singer-songwriter Cold Specks.

The shows, produced by Gaynor Crawford and Kirsten Siddle, are at Melbourne Recital Centre (Sept. 23), QPAC Concert Hall, Brisbane (Sept. 25-26) as part of Brisbane Festival, Enmore Theatre, Sydney (Sept. 27) and a return to Melbourne Recital Centre (Sept. 29).
