Luke is not so much concerned with hidden worlds but
with the landscape of the one around us. The concrete
world is a series of relationships. Form is
established by it's relationship to empty space. There
will always be tension and release in an unending line
as long as there is no border. Life surprises most of
us , we can never see its composition, our birth is
one side of the frame and our death will be the other.
A song is the rise and fall of an empire. Like seeing
the world from a plane….
Luke doesn't understand what any of this means but is
trying his best to figure it out.
He grew up in Manchester, Mass. He attended the school
of the Museum of Fine arts in Boston.
He moved to New York and found the visual art world a
bit too cloistered for his liking so he started
singing, singing for the ones without a fighting
chance, for the voiceless, for the unheard… well, not
really…Mostly because he could and people seemed to
like it. He tells little stories. He only understands
some of them. More than anything he loves texture,
color and surprise.
He put one record out on Millpond records in Seattle
in 2004 called Hold a Match For a Gasoline World, which was recently released on Fargo in France and the UK.
He toured around the U.S. and some in Europe.
He just finished another that he recorded on an old
eight track in his bed room in Brooklyn called
Snowbeast. It is his greatest achievement to date.
It is scheduled for release in 2007.
