Quiet Luke is a first generation American songwriter, record producer, and artist. In 2016, Mermaid Avenue released his debut EP — Beholden — four "hi-fi sci-fi" pop songs that fuse reinterpretations of the detailed sonic universes of producer-as-auteur titans like Brian Wilson, Brian Eno, and Quincy Jones with a "post-industrial-balladeer" perspective.
The EP gained some critical acclaim but ultimately fell short in reach.
In 2017 he returned with another effort, Your Happy Place, a "post-postmodern," real-time performance art praxis that co-opted corporate branding strategies and aesthetic cliches, auditioning "content" as a new and transcendent mode of communication (divergent from Art) in the "fuck it," DIY spirit of both Dada and meme culture. With Santangelo as a collaborator, he created YHP, a "conceptual kitsch brand" intended (1) to empower the artist to “sell in" to the entertainment industry and (2) to comment on late stage capitalism, the socio-political climate, fame in the 21st century (also referred to by tweens as “clout") and, of course, classic models of American culture. While employing the program of New Sincerity as a means for delivery, the project also has another equally, or perhaps more accessible point of entry as just a happy-go-lucky collection of weird but feel good music. He's damn good y'all.
The artist resides in New York City and will release his debut album in 2019.
