Andy & Lucas is a popular Spanish Flamenco-inspired pop duo originally from the province of Cádiz in Spain.[1][2] The band consists of Andrés Morales and Lucas González,[3] who first knew each other as neighbours and friends in their Cádiz neighborhood of La Laguna.[1][2][4]

History[edit]

The boys went to school together from the first grade on, deciding to form a musical group early on in their friendship.[4] At the age of 12, Morales began writing songs, which he began to perform with González in bars around Cadiz by the time they were 16.[2][4] The duo made their recording industry debut four years later with the release of Andy & Lucas, produced by the Argentine-born Alejo Stivel.[4] The disc went on to sell more than 200,000 units, topping the national charts for a number of weeks.[4] The second single of their first album, titled "Son de Amores" peaked at number-one in the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks, on September 18, 2004.

The production of a live in-concert (Barcelona) DVD, entitled Viviendo un Sueno (Living a Dream),[2] saw Morales and González win their first major award, a Premio Onda for Best New Artist. Another song, Ganas de Vivir landed a spot on Billboard's European Top 100. Ganas de vivir has been certified as Platinum. Andy y Lucas have sold more than 1 mill.[4] Their album Desde Mi Barrio received a nomination for a Latin Grammy Award for Best Pop Album by a Duo or Group with Vocals.[5]

Con Los Pies en la Tierra is the fourth album by the Cadiz duo. Containing twelve new songs, it went on sale on September 30, 2008. "Tu que quieres que yo le haga" was the first single, which appeared in 2008, followed by 'tus miradas' in 2009,
