So happy to finally announce some shows in NZ next month. It has been awhile! Excited that my mate Holly Arrowsmith will be supporting. We’re heading to a few main centres, and playing a bunch of brand new venues (for me anyway). Tickets on sale now, TICKET LINKS BELOW. (CHRISTCHURCH – On Sale Very Soon)
So happy to finally release a few new songs! I felt that these four songs shared a candid simplicity and belonged together on ‘Strum Strum‘. Thank you to everyone who helped make this (Check out the full credits on bandcamp if youre interested), to my family and friends who are as crazy as I am and continue to encourage and support me, and all the amazing friends I meet along the way. There are too many of you to mention here. I don’t mind how you consume it, I just hope you enjoy it and share it with your friends. Thanks for listening. Luke x
I had the most amazing time in Europe with my buddy Stu Larsen, travelling to some new places and playing music. I fell in love with Germany, Sweden and Denmark! Thanks to all the amazing peopele I met, I cant wait to see you again soon! P.S I love trains.
New song and music video, from an a new small collection of songs called ‘Strum Strum’, coming real soon!! Thanks to Dusty for awesome set design on the video. Long time collaborator Mark Fruish. And an incredible Director of Photography Chris Mathews. Hope you enjoy it. Luke x
I have decided to release a collection of unreleased songs from the last 5 years, to help finish off my new album. You can buy this collection for $8 or have the option pay more if you would like to help me finish work on my new album. (I guess its my version of a crowd funding campaign). No one has ever heard these songs except some of my friends and family.
Some of are these are initial rough recordings, done only moments after the song was written. Some are demo’s, others were recorded for albums but abandoned and unfinished. Some are pretty rough, unmixed and un-mastered. And some of these songs are actually among my favourites.
I hope you enjoy them. This will only be available for two or three weeks and then they go back to being lost songs, only existing on my computer and yours.
If you enjoy it or just want to help me get the new album done please share the link. Thank you, always. xx Luke
