He has released four albums and two split EPs, as well as greatest hits albums in Japan and China. His fifth album, ‘V’, is due for release in early 2015. A successful crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter enabled him to make the record in the USA with producer Jim Wirt (Jack’s Mannequin, Incubus, Fiona Apple).

Luke has shared stages with artists like Fun., Frank Turner, William Fitzsimmons and Joshua Radin, and recorded live sessions for Radio 1 and Xfm in the UK.

Since June 2012, Luke has been based in Berlin, Germany. When not making music, he works as a copywriter. He loves to read books, watch films, listen to music and go running.
