Luke Jackson
 
 

"He has a stage presence that many artists would kill for and a voice and guitar style that make you think that he's a sixty year veteran who happens to have discovered the fountain of eternal youth" - Fatea Magazine

 
 
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. He was also winner of Fatea's "Male Artist of the Year 2014"
 
 
He has also completed several tours of Scotland, with the last 2 years including playing 2 sold out nights at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He toured in Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany at the end of 2015, and he has started 2016 with a series of joint headline shows with Grammy Award winner Amy Wadge followed by his first visit to the USA to play at the International Folk Alliance conference in Kansas.
 
 
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. In 2015 he released a 7 track EP with his trio, 'This Family Tree', which was described in a 5 star Maverick review as "Two words. Bloody brilliant" and it further reflects his development as both a writer and performer.
