In 2015 Luke Independently made his debut into the music industry with his nine - track album titled ‘Sugarcane Road’. The album had a much greater impact then Luke imagined with over half a million streams and the invitation to play at Australia's premier ‘Blues and Roots Festival’ and ‘Splendour In the Grass Festival.’ When asked Luke said ‘I had little expectation for the album. I was just happy to put some music out there for my friends and family. I had no idea it would turn into a career.’
He then followed up with the release of his singles, ‘I Was Somewhere Else’, 'When It All Goes Down' and ‘The Party’ which featured on major Australian radio station Triple J and was added to rotation on Triple J Unearthed. “This sounds like an afternoon by the beach in summer” wrote Don Alessio of Triple J.

2017 was a milestone yeah for Luke with national sellout shows along with a string of support shows and all whilst recording his follow up record 'Maybe We're Just Running Home' due to be released July 20th 2018. Luke will also be touring through Europe This summer with shows in Germany, Switzerland, London and Ireland

This sounds like Ryan Adams moved to Byron Bay and is starting his career again under the alias "Luke Morris"

The maturity in songwriting and playing is glorious, and your voice is magnificent for this style. So ... are you Ryan Adams?.... ARE YOU!?!

it's like popping on a hoodie after a winter surf - cosy and familiar.

Bombay Bicycle Club with big elements of the 1975 is a strong reference for this one. Interesting to see how many young artists are drawing inspiration from the 1975, clearly an important band
