After a couple of years extensively touring the world, opening for artist such as Villagers, The Staves, Martha Wainwright and Kodaline, in 2017 Luke released his sophomore record Time Is A Riddle, which featured stand out song Killing Me. This song further presented Luke’s deep and empathetic songwriting skill. His third album, A Golden State, was released in April 2019. Written in the lead up to his relocation to Los Angeles, the newest batch of songs delve deep into themes of age anxiety, marriage and dreaming of a life in another place, with a renewed state of mind.
His songs are rich and somber and have the tendency to stop you in your tracks. Of his songwriting Luke says “I like writing about the heavy things. There’s a lot of shallow stuff out there. My fun is diving as deep as I can. Inside myself and, if I can, inside others and writing songs that are as honest as I can make them. Honest to the struggles we all face, the sadness but more importantly, the hope.”
