Bio

Indi/Folk songsmith Luke Morris was born and raised in the small coastal town of Port Lincoln on South Australia's west coast.
Luke’s passion for songwriting developed at the age of 16 whilst living abroad with his family in Europe, conjuring inspiration from the unfamiliar countryside, and the sounds of Bob Dylan, Jeff Buckley, Bon Iver and Nick Drake.
In Early 2014, Luke Morris teamed up with producer Jordan Power (Xavier Rudd, Angus Stone) to record his debut album ‘Sugarcane Road’. Luke released the album independently in September 2014, followed by several national sold out shows and appearances at ‘Splendor In The Grass Festival’ and the ‘Byron Bay Blues And Roots Festival’.
'I Was Somewhere Else' is the follow up single from Luke Morris' debut album
‘Sugarcane Road’. The single was recorded and co produced with friend and fellow musician Garret Katto in living rooms and farm houses in and around Byron Bay.

Luke has taking his previous 'acoustic bedroom' songwriter sound to a larger band dynamic whilst maintaining a strong lyrical base.
With a mixture of overdriven eclectic guitars, vintage electric guitars, organ, drum explosions and a heavily low bass; this is a new and exciting direction and one to keep your ears out for.

‘I Was Somewhere Else’ is due to be released on the 14th August 2015

This sounds like an afternoon by the beach in summer.

Some sweet folk sounds from this Byron Bay based singer. He'll be playing one of the smaller stages at this year's Splendour In The Grass.
