Luciën was born in 1964, Eindhoven, Netherlands and started to study classical guitar at the age of 15 but switched to electric bass after hearing Jaco Pastorius on a `Weather Report` concert in Amsterdam.
In the eighties Luciën played all over Holland with `Tilt` a band that accompanied a lot of famous dutch artists like Lee Towers and Anita Meijer. It was also with Tilt that he did a theatre-project with vocalist Jay Delmore. At the end of the 80`s Luciën was active as an actor and multi instrumentalist (gitar, key`s and bass) with a theatre group named `Teklin`.
From 1984 untill 1986 he studied planologie at the University of Nijmegen, but he kept playing and decided to devote himself completely to music.
In 1995 he graduated from the Conservatorium of Arnhem on light music for contrabass and electric bass. Luciën did masterclasses with Marc Johnson, John Clayton, Hein van de Geyn, Renaud Garcia-Fons, David Friesen en Jesper Lundgard.
In 1991 he founded the `Henning Wolter Trio` together with Henning Wolter (piano) and Marcel Van Cleef (drums). This trio is still very active, specialy in jazzclubs and festivals in Germany, Holland and Belgium. At start they sounded a lot like the Keith Jarrett Trio and the Bill Evans Trio, but soon they evolved to their own sound with own compositions. So far the Henning Wolter Trio produced 6 albums (see page Audio): Voyager(1996), Two Faces (1998), Years of a Trilogy (2001), Plan X (2004), Illusion (2005), Le Grand Spectacle (2008).
At the start of the 90`s Luciën played a couple of times in Los Angeles, pop and jazz. At the end of the 90`s he played with the rockband `Terra Nova` all over Japan and Korea, where the band was very popular and stood high in the hitlists. In Holland and England (the Gods of AOR festival in Wigan in 1998) Terra Nova was also quite popular.
Lately Luciën is often seen in the jazz-scene, playing with Eric Vloeimans, Gerd Dudek, John Engels, Masha Bijlsma, Wiro Mahieu, Bobby Gantt, Michiel Braam, Frank Nielander, Jeroen Doomernik, Willem Kuhne, Pierre Courbois and many others.
