Lucas Distribution has struck a deal with GAYVN award-winning singing-songwriting duo Nekked to distribute their debut album, A Barrier of Skin, on its online store.

“I love Nekked’s music and am proud to be getting its sound out to the world,” said Michael Lucas, president and CEO of Lucas Entertainment. “It’s our first time distributing a music CD on our Web site, and I don’t think it could be with a more fitting artist."

In February 2007, Nekked won the Best Music GAYVN for their score of Michael Lucas’ La Dolce Vita. The New York–based group—comprised of boyfriends JC Faust and Sinn—produces a musical style that has been dubbed “post-modern folk, composed of tight harmonies, arresting lyrics and a mix of acoustic and electronic productions.” A Barrier of Skin has been hailed as a “must for fans of alt-pop music.” Several tracks are co-produced by renowned artist/producer Richard Morel. A video for the track “The Wave That Takes Me Under” is now available on YouTube.

“We had an incredibly fun time working on the music for Michael Lucas’ La Dolce Vita,” said Nekked band member Sinn. “Although we’ve done film and TV work in the past, writing music for steamy sex scenes proved to be quite the challenge musically, but a challenge worth viewing over and over again until we felt we had it right! And then to win the GAYVN for Best Music just topped it off!”

The album is available now at www.lucasentertainment.com.
