self-dubbed “Hardest Working Man in No Biz” Luke Sweeney plays co-conspirator to SF stalwarts such as Tim Cohen & Healing Potpourri in between countless odd jobs and a personal output that has sparked critical interest from the outset.
His 2013 debut ‘Ether Ore’ garnered praise for “melodies that feel like opiates for the soul” (SF Chronicle). Then Sweeney’s 2014 studio breakout ‘Adventure:Us’ expanded into “far-reaching pop, psychedelic, and classic-rock realms with humor and irreverence” and a “distinctly Golden State mix of psych-pop, soft rock and country/folk” that “crackles with time-worn allusions to psychedelia, bubblegum, glam, and mellow Seventies balladry”. Playing with kindred spirits such as Jessica Pratt, La Luz, Night Moves, Morgan Delt, and Sugar Candy Mountain, Sweeney drew comparisons to a laundry list of lovable artists, like “a grittier Father John Misty, or a more sincere Push Kings, or The Flaming Lips without the silliness, or Pavement...” (Bend Bulletin).
While those muses are still present in his approach, 'Peace Meal' (2019) feels like a rebirth; the stuff of cosmos that Sweeney has been personally tasked to deliver. "This album has a healing quality. It deserves consideration as his finest work yet" (Too Much Love). “..a smorgasbord of influence: there’s Kinks and T. Rex, there’s Mungo Jerry and the smallest touch of Latin vibes; waltzy beats. Sweeney writes songs with a connective energy about them. This Sweeney has soul” (TheBayBridged).
