Luke is a singer, songwriter, pianist, guitarist, and music producer. He started playing piano when he was four, after watching Elton John performing on a CBS live music special. Shortly after that, he began singing in a choir and playing guitar, and eventually that led to him writing songs for his bands throughout high school and college.
He studied Songwriting and Music Production at Berklee College of Music in Boston, and graduated in the summer of 2019. While he was there he released one solo album and an EP, and one full-length album with his band.
After graduating, he stayed in Boston for a while, recording an album called Some Easy Blood, before the pandemic brought him back to Chicago.
He didn’t stay very long in Chicago, though, and soon packed his bags and left for LA in the fall of 2020. There he recorded his third album, Point Of You, and eventually decided Hollywood wasn’t the right move, and relocated to Chicago once again.
Luke started his teaching career just after graduating Berklee, working at a School Of Rock, teaching guitar, singing, and piano. He pivoted and began teaching with a few other studios in Boston, and has stayed busy teaching those students virtually since the pandemic began. These lessons combine his knowledge of classical techniques with his enthusiasm for more current music. Every student is different, so his philosophy is about finding what the student wants to learn and applying those fundamental techniques in a fun environment based on that.
"David Bowie is the musician that inspired me most. His ability to push boundaries and constantly reinvent himself is what makes him a true artist. A lot of people settle and start phoning in their records, but I think he was one of the rare ones who was always stretching himself and what he could do. That’s so inspiring to me."
