Loyal fans describe their music as "epic", "dark", or "post-industrial, heavy rock with strong and at the same time vulnerable vocals; some say their sound is like Evanescence meets A Perfect Circle

Lucid Fly founders Nikki Layne and Doug Mecca joined forces in Orlando, Florida in 2001. The band exploded onto the Orlando music scene and quickly gained a large and devoted following. 2005 saw the release of their debut EP, Adapting To Gravity.

After playing venues all over Florida for a couple of years, singer Nikki and guitarist Doug saw it was time to head out to California to win over the West Coast. In L.A., they teamed up with drummer Aaron Ficca, who has toured with acts like Macy Gray, and bassist Go Nakabayashi, who quit a successful, signed band in Japan to pursue his dream of making it in the US. In 2009, the band released a second EP titled The Escape Stage which has received stellar feedback and has also continued to grab audiences attention and widen their fan base.
