Bio

Joseph Dargan AKA Lucky Luke is a Hip Hop artist from Mount Isa, born in Cloncurry, QLD. Lucky Lukes inspiration and fighting spirit draws from his life experiences. His ancestry spans from the Northern Territory of Warumungu country to further south of the Ringa Ringa group, to the country of the Mighty Mitakoodi and the Kalkadoons and along to his home of the Waanyi people.

Lucky Luke has an uncanny sense for a dope beats, storytelling and lyricism, each song speaks a narrative. Lucky Luke is gifted with a unique flow and the power of expression that shapes his tracks based on life and the passion for his people and community. In “Send me to my grave” off the Whichway album he dedicates a special heartfelt oral history verse of his grandfather’s struggle and survival.

Since the release of the first album Whichway earned Triple J rotation for singles ‘Send me to my Grave’ and ‘1day’ which was nominated in the Triple J hottest 100. He then released his second album ‘Playin’ da blk card’ late 2015.

After the disappointed release of his second album ‘Playin’ da blk card’ Lucky Luke realised how lucky he was to receive high radio rotation on his first album 'Whichway'. Determined to be recognised amongst his peers Lucky Luke has been a man on a mission ever since.

2017 was a big year for Lucky Luke, he was humbled to preform at the Yabun festival on the 26th of January in Sydney, chosen as the One Night Stand winner for his Track 'Jacks' a tribute to his community in Mount Isa and was a finalist in the APRA AMCOS Professional development awards.

Lately he is secretly working on his third album with no release date but promises this album will be his best.
