From now through June 17, the date of our huge annual music festival ShowcaseSTL, we'll be announcing two ​honorees per weekday on our music blog.

Metro East native Anthony Lucius Walker Jr. has been making music in some capacity since his days as a student at O’Fallon Township High School, but it wasn’t until a few years after his 2011 graduation that Walker decided to get serious about it. Five years, a few abandoned monikers and a move to Columbia and back later, the rapper/producer released his 2016 debut under the name Anthony Lucius, entitled Please Do Not Feed the Rappers. This year, he demonstrated the continuing development of his assertive — though often soft-spoken — style with Welcome to St. Lucius, released April 21, and preceded by a Louis Quatorze-produced video for the album’s first single, “Bridge.”
