It all started early fall 2009, Tony Lucca & Jay Nash co-headlined a tour which featured Matt Duke as support. The bromance was set into motion. Early in the tour, the three recognized that they had great musical chemistry with their three part harmony and different, yet complementary approaches to guitar.

On a day off, 09/09/09, to be exact Lucca, Nash and Duke recorded four songs in an impromptu session at SPACE in Evanston, IL. Upon hearing those recordings, management and Rykodisc almost immediately put a plan together to release them as a four song EP. Two months later, the TFDI EP was released and quickly rose to number 1 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart and stayed there for weeks. That EP has sold nearly 30,000 digital copies to date. Tony Lucca, Jay Nash and Matt Duke joined forces again in 2010 for a national tour that was largely sold out, and wrote and recorded the TFDI full length When I Stop Running.

That tour schedule was cut short by Tony Lucca's success on The Voice and it would be five years before TFDI would play together again. Two sold out concerts in 2017 made id more than evident to Matt, Tony and Jay that they needed to record more music together. Beggars & Ballers was released on March 31st, 2016 and debuted at number one on the iTunes Singer Songwriter top albums chart.

After a successful 15 city tour in support of the Beggars & Ballers EP, Lucca, Duke and Nash joined forces again in August and put another four songs to record. They including their interpretation of Pearl Jam's classic anthem, 'Better Man' along with new original songs from each of the three songwriters. That collection, 'The Minute You Get', was released on December 1, 2017 and again, debuted at #1 on the iTunes Singer Songwriter chart.

In summary, TFDI is greater than the plain sum of it's parts, which is impressive enough in it's own right. Three well traveled and celebrated singer songwriters, each with their own unique approach to music and storytelling join together in this band, to form a fourth entity that is defined not only by rare and unparalleled vocal harmonies and musical alchemy, but also by a resonant collective narrative that has cultivated a devoted following.
