Born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand, Luke-W draws from a wide range of rock and hiphop influences to create a unique sound in production.
As a teenager, Luke played guitar and learnt music theory from his mother who taught music and played piano. Lyrically conscious, Luke raps and sings, having garnered a passion for free-styling in his teens - which further piqued his interest in music production and recording. After dropping out of University in 2015 and deciding to leave NZ to pursue his music, Luke landed in Bristol, UK and spent the next two years there crafting his sound, whilst living in a music studio. Releasing ‘Citizon EP’ in Dec, 2017 at the Hy-Brasil Music Club in Bristol. Picking up a host of influences along the way, from Dub to DnB and UK Hip-Hop - he returned to New Zealand in 2018. Continuing to grow and develop musically, he is set to only get better with new releases coming in 2019.
