Luke put together a catchy, fun, current sounding melody for my cowriter and I. We LOVE what he created! Thank you Luke!
Like is a did a great job on my song. He sent me a high quality vocal track ready to be dropped into my DAW. I requested a couple fixes, which he did without a glitch. He’s a pro. He made all the difference for pitching this tune.
I’ll be using Luke again soon.
amazing job. absolutely amazing.
I’ve written several songs with Luke, and he’s the real deal! Great voice, talented songwriter, and a hard worker. Big things are coming for this guy. I highly recommend working with Luke if you get the chance!
Luke is amazing! His vocals are insane. He did such a great job of interpreting what I was asking for, but yet went above and beyond with his creativity. He is timely & was able to record his vocals in just one day. I was so happy with Luke and will definitely use him again! If you need male county vocals, Luke is for sure your guy!

Luke is an outstanding singer and songwriter (and a very cool guy). His vibe, nuance and deep love of music shines through on everything he does. Plus, his work ethic is fantastic. I would highly recommend Luke as a singer, co-songwriter or guitarist. This guy is tops!

Q: How would you describe your style?

A: I would love to work with Ed Sheeran someday because he is a tremendous writer.
