Luke Pickett is an exciting evolution of the singer-songwriter. One of the UK’s most popular acoustic artist on the famed MySpace network, Luke is growing an army of fans across the world with his angelic and soulful voice, passionate and cinematic story-telling and intense live performances. Following the success of his debut EP release, ‘For Every Petal Lost…Another Gained,’ and the follow up EP the ‘Blood Money EP’ Luke is now in middle of recording his debut album to be released in 2011
His songs are heart wrenching stories outlined by divine melodies, intelligent and hooky guitar lines set in subtly epic productions with Luke Pickett’s unique soaring vocals and signature falsetto. This young man has a way of spinning a classic love tale into an über-romantic twisted musical sonnet. Luke Pickett is the troubadour sent back from the future to wake us up from the banality of shoe-gazing retro hippies.
Citing Jeff Buckley, Michael Jackson, and Prince as influences, this 22 year old’s sound is somewhat hard to pin down. It’s labelled Acoustic/Alternative/R&B, but Luke Pickett’s music is clearly the result of a wide range of influences.
Luke live is a thing to behold. Either solo with his acoustic guitar, or backed by his three comrades on bass, drums and electric guitar, the songs sing for themselves and have been winning over fans in clubs all over the UK.
