We first came across Luke Jackson at the 2009 Weyfest near Farnham in Surrey. Definitely a rising star at 15 years old. At 19, he was wowing audiences across the UK and Europe. At the end of 2014 Luke supported MARILLION on their Christmas UK and European tour.

 

Luke is a young Roots Singer/Songwriter from Canterbury, Kent, who in 2013 was nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards for both the Horizon Award for Best Emerging Talent and The Young Folk Category.  With a bold, distinctive voice and a sweet, percussive guitar style, Luke is a confident and captivating live performer.

Over the past few years he has steadily been developing a reputation for himself in the Folk & Roots circuits either through his solo shows, many festival appearances or when opening for such luminaries as Show of  Hands, Steve Knightley, Martyn Joseph, Karine Polwart, Oysterband, Paul Brady, Glen Tilbrook, Sarah Jarosz and Lucy Ward. He has also completed two short tours of Scotland, including playing at both the highly regarded Belladrum and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals.

His first tour of Europe took in Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany.  This was followed by a prestigious support slot on the Marillion tour to end 2014 and he started 2015 with a series of joint headline shows with Amy Wadge.

His debut album ‘More Than Boys’ produced by the acclaimed Welsh Singer-Songwriter Martyn Joseph was released in 2012 to great reviews, as was the follow up ‘Fumes and Faith’ in early 2014.  This record was co-produced by Luke with Cardiff based American producer Mason Neely and further reflects his development as both a writer and performer. 

Luke is an ever present in the live music scene, gigging relentlessly all over the country and he remains a prolific songwriter  with a further full length album due in 2016.
