Bio

I am really proud to have been chosen as the One Night Stand winner for my Track 'Jacks'. I cant wait to Hip Hop all over that stage and represent for my homies in THE ISA!! One Night Stand 2017 see you Saturday 22 April in Mount Isa!

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.

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.

Lucky Luke has an uncanny sense for a dope beat and word play. A gift of 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.

Lucky Lukes albums feature collaborations with JPoint, Auriel Andrew, Dice Hip Hop, Joe Ave, RazzyMak, Na-Palm and BoZzA. In January 2017 he released ‘Gone4ever feat. Rahjconkas’. In June 2017 he’ll release ‘MY STEREO’, a single with female Hip Hop duo ‘Coda Conduct’ and in April 2017 new single ‘JACKS’ a tribute to a community in Mount Isa“.

In 2015 Lucky Luke was a standout at the NIMA awards nominated for best talent. He kicked off 2017 by performing in Australia’s biggest Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Major festival ‘Yabun’ to an audience of 35,000 people in Sydney.
Lucky Luke is supporting American Hype Man Fatman Scoop in Mount Isa, Qld in May 2017 and is currently working on his third album ‘Walkabout’ due for release December 2017.

Currently working on a new album and a 2017/18 tour with his crew:
Joe Mackay (Jo Ave) DJ and rapper who hones 10 plus years in the music industry as producer and label owner and member of collective ‘Born Fresh Records’ aka Hip Hop artist ‘Eloquence’.

Dave Marsalis, nationally respected drummer who has recorded and toured with Archie Roach, Christine Anu and Yothu Yindi and continues to play as a session drummer for man bands and is co host of the “funky lunch show” on Koori Radio 93.7fm.

Lucky Luke is ready to roll out like a boss in 2017 and prepare for a busy year with singles “JACKS” and “My Stereo”, another album “Walkabout”, sick collaborations, planning tours - armed with a team who are as passionate about his music as Lucky Luke himself.
