Produced in six days by the Grammy-winning Clay Cook (Zac Brown Band, John Mayer collaborations etc.), "Never Regret the Nights" is the second CD by contemporary troubadour Lucas Miré.
Marrying head and heart, Miré's sophomore effort eschews the folktronica/pop touches of his award-nominated debut, and finds him taking a more organic approach to another batch of highly personal songs. Featuring 10 lyrically-driven and melodic tracks, three of which feature Girlyman's Doris Muramatsu, "Never Regret the Nights" is a clear expression of the modern/urban folk aesthetic.

"Miré's smooth voice and intimate lyrics break your heart and then heal it, all in the same phrase. -- Jennifer Vanasco, nationally syndicated columnist
"Lucas Miré is another welcome voice on the gay male singer/songwriter circuit." -- Gregg Shapiro, Bay Area Reporter, Philly Gay News, Chicago Free Press
Starred Review: "These consoling tracks, built on acoustic guitar, speak to what happens in the quietest hours." -- Stephen Sears, Instinct Magazine
"Lucas Miré is not your average singer-songwriter. Aside from having compelling melodies and insightful, poignant lyrics, Miré's gentle pop songs possess that special and rather rare quality - the one that makes you tune right in and eat up every word." -- Edie Carey, Singer-Songwriter
"An ascending folk-pop voice, Miré's storyteller wit is well-matched with his rich, natural baritone." -- Bill Addison, Creative Loafing, Atlanta
"Graceful melodies that are as catchy as they are insightful. Musically, it's a nice blend of cool, breezy acoustic pop/rock -- fresh but familiar at the same time. Lucas invites you to take a peek into his soul in this diary of a bright-eyed boy who's wiser than his years and has a unique perspective." -- James Cool, Madison Park
"What's evident is that Miré's strengths lie in his songwriting. As a lyricist, he cuts deeply and honestly into the maelstrom of angst and pain that color intimate relationships. And the candor is frequently startling." -- Van Gower, New York Blade, NYC
