One of the most talented musicians we've ever seen (who also happens to be one of the best people we've ever known, too) has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund his new full-length studio album. Tony Lucca, who you probably know from being Team Adam's finalist on Season 2 of The Voice, went live with his Kickstarter Wednesday morning.

If it succeeds, he'll be the latest in a line of Voice alumni that have funded albums through the platform, including fellow Season 2 Team Adam members Pip and Katrina Parker.

Having been writing and recording pretty steadily since he left the reality TV world, Tony has put out two strong EPs over the last two years. His first, With The Whole World Watching, was under a deal with Voice coach Adam Levine's 222 Records label and contained the single "Never Gonna Let You Go," which he performed on the show last year. That partnership has amicably ended, and so Tony's returning to his independent roots to release what will be his eighth studio album.

He also just released the acoustic EP Drawing Board on March 18, and - maintaining his status as one of the hardest-working men in music - is currently playing yet another tour, this one with Tyler Hilton. He previously embarked upon the 'Keys, Strings and Band of Kings Tour' with Brendan James and appearances by Season 1 Voice finalist Vicci Martinez, and he's played plenty of solo shows across the country, too.

Tony never stops working hard to bring his fans the best music and live shows that he possibly can, so it's kind of fitting that we now have the opportunity to give something back to him.
